Tokyo-based Instagrammer @neji_maki_dori has been exploring abandoned buildings in Japan ever since his first visit to the ruins of a sulfer mine in 2006. "The overwhelming scale, inorganic and deserted feel, moldy smell and excitement were all very refreshing and inspiring to me at the time," he says. "I've been captivated by ruins ever since." @neji_maki_dori sources locations from printed materials about abandoned sites and the collective knowledge base of his fellow explorers.

Today, thousands of bicyclists embark on a seven-day ride along the 545 miles of scenic California coast between San Francisco and Los Angeles to raise money and awareness in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Originally founded in 1993 as the California AIDS Ride, AIDS/LifeCycle (@aidslifecycle) celebrates its 20th ride this year.
