The Most Iconic Photographs From National Geographic's 125-Year History. Perhaps the most iconic National Geographic photo, Steve McCurry snapped this picture of an Afghan girl in a Pakistan refugee camp in 1984. It almost went unnoticed, until one editor rescued it from a pile and stuck it on the June 1985 Cover. Absolutely stunning photo. #nationalgeographic

Dia de los Muertos Skull - This decorative pumpkin skull captures the festive spirit of Dia de los Muertos in memory of the dead. - At its origin, this is the same day as America's Halloween, but commercialism (which has its origins in Protestant capitalism) has eliminated - or altered perhaps - the spiritual essence of the holiday.
