Ballooning Kindness

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.
