Larry Fitzgerald's Travel Photos
Larry Fitzgerald's travel log is as robust as his NFL stats. Since 2005, he's traveled through 80 countries on every continent but Antarctica. In conjunction with an SI.com feature on the Arizona Cardinals receiver, Fitzgerald agreed to share some of the photos he's taken and some of those taken of him. "One of those spur of the moment photos: they were coming towards me and I snapped."
Riding down the street in a car, I saw this guy transporting livestock in a very unconventional way. The livestock was still moving and everything -- I had to take a picture.
On a mission with the Starkey Hearing Foundation, fitting hearing aides with defenseman Tommie Harris, Jr. Seeing a child hear for the first time is priceless.
I used my 400mm lens to shoot these two cheetahs from about 150 feet away in the Serengeti National Park.
I entered the dojo to find the sumos practicing. It looked interesting so I just started snapping away.
These two zebras caught my eye.
I took this during a torrential downpour, as the silverback ate with his family. I yelled, 'Hey buddy, look over here,' and it worked out well. I used a big lens to get this one -- I was a good 120 feet away from him.

On a two-and-a-half week mission with the Starkey Hearing Foundation, helping fit over 14,000 hearing aids in five cities and two countries.
Early morning and I'm trying to get a panoramic view of the sun rising.
The Maasai children asked if I played basketball and their elder statesman, who spoke English, translated `No.' They then challenged me to a jumping competition and I accepted. The elder told me that in ancient times the highest jumper would get to pick the most eligible women in the village to marry.
The Wadi Rum desert.
Just having lunch on a perch, looking towards Mount Everest.
Floating in the Dead Sea.
