Photo of the Week: Galapagos

This time our photo of the week comes from the Carter's vast Eliot Porter collection. Because we have Porter's entire archive and he so diligently organized his work, we can pinpoint exactly what day he shot most of his photographs. I think we probably have at least one - and probably many more - photograph for every day of the year.

The following photo was taken on this day during Porter's 1966 expedition to the Galapagos Islands.
