Star Bright

“I came across this sea shell and noticed the delicate patterns when I held it up to the light,” writes Your Shot member Melanie Huff, who made this photograph in Humble, Texas. “I quickly decided that it would make a unique abstract, so I took it home and placed a lamp behind it and snapped a few shots.”

Huff’s picture recently appeared in Your Shot’s Daily Dozen.

Unsolved Mystery

While strolling in a historic neighborhood in Cuenca, Ecuador, Your Shot member Fikry Botros noticed this outsize accessory lying near an old hat factory. “Then,” he writes, “I noticed a building nearby with this beautiful old yellow wall and a half-open door. I outfitted my daughter with the hat and asked her to pretend as if she were waiting for someone at the entrance of the house. To add mystery, I metered the light on the yellow wall to make the inside of the house dark, and I made sure that the hat completely hid her face. Is she waiting? Is she hiding? Is she guarding the house? Who is she? Why this hat?”

Artists’ Cave

Perched near Africa’s southern tip, Blombos Cave has yielded some of the earliest evidence of symbolic expression, including shell beads, engraved ocher, and ocher-processing kits that are 100,000 years old.

Spruced Up

Evergreen trees populate the Maroon Bells Wilderness in Colorado’s White River National Forest. Photographer Pete McBride argues that management of U.S. wilderness areas—including the introduction of plant and animal species to balance ecosystems—keeps these large swaths of land from being truly wild.

See more from McBride’s ode to wilderness on Proof.

Wedding Colors

In Nigeria it’s common to ask guests to wear color-coordinated outfits, called aso ebi, at social events, such as this wedding at the Yoruba Tennis Club in Lagos.

Winter Hues

Photographing on a foggy morning near Pampore, India, Your Shot member Sajad Rafeeq waited half an hour for a passing train to complete his composition. “I had reached a village and a few kids guided me to a canal,” Rafeeq writes. “It’s surrounded by poplar trees on both sides, and as soon as I reached it, I saw their beautiful symmetry and also spotted the railway bridge. I framed the composition while having in mind the train that had yet to come.”

Rafeeq’s picture recently appeared in Your Shot’s Daily Dozen.

Scattered Snow

“This photo was taken on a chilly morning in the Austrian Alps during our ski holiday,” writes Your Shot member Horst Bierau. “I was about to clear the car of the freshly fallen snow from the night before and head off to the slopes when I noticed the tiny ice crystals on the car’s windowpane. The dark inside of the car cabin provided the perfect background for this motif.”

Bierau’s picture recently appeared in the Your Shot assignment Macro.
