Hoop Dreams

A performer with Switzerland’s Swiss Dream Circus nimbly twirls hula hoops around her arms and legs. “In Malaysia, it’s really hard to see a circus show … without animals involved,” writes Your Shot member Aizuddin Saad. “When I heard that a group of circus performers was doing a show in Kuala Lumpur, I took a chance to document circus life.” Saad’s picture recently appeared in Your Shot's Daily Dozen. This photo was submitted to Your Shot.
