“The gaye holud is a traditional Bengali wedding ceremony in which the bride and groom are presented with fish dressed as the couple,” writes Your Shot member Brian Callaway, who captured this photo in the town of Mamallapuram, on the east coast of India. “Amit and Sofi have an amazing sense of humor and started playing and posing with the fish after their gaye holud. It didn’t take too long before I saw that if they held the fish up to their faces, the eyes of the fish would match their own. For me, the photo perfectly captures this cultural part of their wedding, their fun/spontaneous personalities, and, more importantly, how much fun they were having. It’s also their favorite photo.”

Your Shot member Giorgio Lulli came across a charity event by chance one Sunday in the main square of his hometown of Bologna, Italy. “People had responded generously to the charity call, and the big square was almost totally covered with balloons,” he writes. “This shot was taken with the camera practically at ground level, with framing from bottom upward.”
Lulli’s picture recently appeared in Your Shot’s Daily Dozen.
