    Is it time to publish already?! I wish these assignments never ended. Thanks to all the photographers who invited me to get a glimpse inside their family adventures. Family is the most important thing in my life and to be able to join your families on adventures through visuals brought me immense joy. I've chosen my 17 favorite images and spoken to each them in the editor’s notes. What is unique and different about this assignment is that both “family’ and “adventure” are so relative. My family are my friends, my furry companions and the brothers and sisters of this world I have yet to meet. 

    My adventures start with waking up with a positive attitude and often end on the summit of an unclimbed mountain. I’ve learned to see life in a new way and for this I am deeply thankful for your submissions. 

    Plane spotting is much more fun in threes.

    Really great concept here, Jody. This isn't as easy photo to get and it looks simple and effortless. There is a subtle message here that we can all relate to. (Packing my bags right now...)

    I love the simplicity of this image, yet it evokes a great depth. It reminds me that our playfulness should never dull with age and that the sky, the sand and the sun would never exist to us witho... More

    Great shot Zach. There is a personal story being told on both sides of your split - The before and after facial expression on both kids that represent a summer's plunge. I want to be a kid again!

    This is a beautifully executed split shot. I feel as if I'm the third sibling, spying on my sister and brother through goggles. Great composition as well.

    Beautiful family portrait. There is a health, happiness and vitality to this family that gives me pause. The soft, dappled, midday light makes this image relaxing on the eyes. Great expressions and... More

    Beautiful lighting on this explosive moment of fun. Our world moves so fast and thus do our moments of joy. I love to see frozen moments like this. Awesome!

    Waiting for the food to come is somehow exasperating and relaxing for kids and parents alike.

    Very creative and powerful image. I feel as if I'm staring back into my own childhood through a wall created by time. It's inviting and also distant. Beautiful photograph.

    Nailed it. There is little in the way of an everyday adventure and the people you share it with are the most important.

    Everyone enjoys adventure in different ways. This is a great cross-section of the "family adventure": some stay dry & some embrace it. Very colorful and emotive.

    Great use of black & white, Javier. I'm drawn into this frame by your use of negative space and framing. It has a timeless feel and reminds us that everyday can be a family adventure. Love it.

    A stunning capture. The inclusion of bystanders in this image help reflect a quiet appreciation to an otherwise daunting scene. The one hat is just enough to help place the image in Cuba. Great shot.

    As my life (my daughter, Josie, is almost 2!) and adventures continue I hope you follow along with me (@andy_mann) and continue to share yours. I’m off to Peru and Greenland this summer to continue my own adventures.
