This Month in Photo of the Day: The Stories Behind Your Shots

“Nonstop rain for a week left all the small lakes filled with water in Kumta,” says Your Shot contributor Dinesh Hegde of an early monsoon in the coastal Indian town. “When the sun came out unexpectedly, one could see the people running around to finish off their last week’s pending work with a mixture of happiness and [haste].”

Hegde came across the swimming children while riding his bike. “The gorgeous monsoon clouds and the Western Ghats formed a perfect backdrop for their cheerful activity,” Hegde says. And the kids were happy to get the perfect response to their celebrations—”me photographing them.”
