California no longer has a white majority
For the first time in California  the number of Latinos has matched the white population.Fifteen years ago the white population outnumbered the Latino population by five million. And studies indicate that by 2014 Latinos will outnumber the white population. 

California’s fast-growing Latino population will have a lasting impact on the labor force, since there will be 7.2 million Latinos under the age of 25 compared to 3.8 million whites by 2030. Latinos are currently the fastest growing segment of business owners in California. The changing labor landscape underscores the importance of educating Latino youths who constitute more than half of the state’s secondary schools, and will be needed to supplant the aging white non-Hispanic population.

The Running of the Bulls

See more photos of the events in Pamplona by visiting the #sanfermin and #pamplona hashtags as well as the Plaza de Toros de Pamplona and Pamplona location pages

Today at 8:00 AM local time, the running of the bulls took place in Pamplona, Spain. The running of the bulls is the highest profile event of the San Fermin festival, which is held July 6-14 every year. Eight runnings take place over the course of the eight-day festival. Runners start each bull run, or encierro, singing a benediction at the statue of the event’s patron saint San Fermin, shouting together ¡Viva San Fermín! Gora San Fermin! (“Long live San Fermin” in Spanish and Basque). A rocket then signals that all six bulls have been released and the 826 meter sprint begins.

Runners must be over 18 years old and traditionally carry that day’s rolled-up newspaper in hand to draw the bulls’ attention. Every year, between 200 and 300 people are injured and 15 people have been killed since record-keeping began. While many people turn out for the running of the bulls, the tradition is not without controversy, as many animal rights activists oppose and actively protest the event.

It might seem overwhelming when you think about photographing drops of liquid. It takes split-second timing and a ton of patience, but with a little luck, you can do it yourself! Pop. Photo teamed up with water drop pro Markus Reugels to round up some helpful tips.

Happy Independence Day!

Want to see more photos? Check out the One World Trade Center location page.

On this day in 1776, the United States declared its independence from Great Britain. Now, the U.S. celebrates the 4th of July as Independence Day, an occasion commemorated with parades, fireworks and barbecues.

To highlight this important day in 1776, Lower Manhattan’s One World Trade Center (formerly called the Freedom Tower) reached its final height of 1,776 feet with the recent addition of the tower’s 408-foot spire.

Share photos of your own Independence Day celebrations (and fireworks!) with the #IndependenceDay and #July4 hashtags!

Chasing Density with @vdubl

For more photos of Hong Kong’s towering architecture, be sure to follow @vdubl on Instagram.

Hong Kong-based architect Vivien Wei Wei Liu (@vdubl) loves building design and mobile photography—two passions that come together in a powerful way through her Instagram images. “The design of buildings in Hong Kong is based on spatial scarcity; a struggle to house as many people on the smallest site possible,” explains Vivien. “The notion of living closely has a different connotation in what is one of the densest places in the world.”

Through her smartphone, Vivien captures the seemingly endless repetition and colorful patterns found in many of the city’s residential towers and deep urban canyons, where light barely reaches the street level. “My goal is to immerse the viewer into the space in which the photo was taken,” Vivien says.

Vivien, who helped organize a recent Instameet in Hong Kong, is also fascinated with the city’s stunning skyline. “One of the unique characteristics of Hong Kong is that in less than 20 minutes from the city, one can be immersed in lush greenery while enjoying spectacular views that juxtapose nature and the dense urban fabric.”

QT Luong is an avid photographer of US national parks, but in his latest project, he wanted to take things a step further. He decided to capture the very first time-lapse surveying Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, all the way from the sea to summit.

Instagrammers Capture Protests in Brazil

Thousands gathered in Brazil’s largest cities starting over the weekend and running through tonight to protest what started as a fight against bus-fare increases and has evolved into one of the biggest movements since the nation’s military dictatorship ended in 1985. Protesters are voicing frustration about a variety of issues, including inflation, government corruption, tax rates and the cost and delays associated with next year’s World Cup soccer tournament.

In São Paulo, thousands took to Avenida Paulista to march and wave Brazilian flags. In Rio de Janeiro, marchers stormed Avenida Rio Branco. In Brasilía, protesters danced atop the roof of the Congresso Nacional. To view more photos, visit the #vemprarua and #protestorj hashtags.
