Grand Torino

Photograph by Prandoni Livio, National Geographic Your Shot

For Prandoni Livio our city lives are, more and more, lived fleetingly. Livio, who shared this picture with our Your Shot community, was on a trip to Turin, Italy, when he captured this shot of a passing tram. “I look around to discover new situations and photographic opportunities,” he writes. Seeing the passing tram, Livio “concentrated on [the] situation, trying to find the right angles and [waiting] for the passage of people to make the photo dynamic.”

Salar de Uyuni Sunrise

Photograph by Hideki Mizuta, National Geographic Your Shot

“No wind, no sound—it was a very calm morning,” writes Hideki Mizuta, a member of our Your Shot community who captured this image at Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni. “I joined a sunrise tour at 2 a.m., first seeing a star-filled sky, and then early in the morning, around 5 a.m., this scene appeared through the window of the car. I ran out in a hurry. It was an amazing view that I couldn’t put into words. I thought, I want this scene all to myself, and walked away from people and took this photo in absolute silence.”

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

Porque hoje não se fala noutra coisa a não ser “Eusébio”… partilho aqui uma imagem que sempre me marcou. E, certamente, marcou Eusébio também.
