This Month in Photo of the Day: Your Photos

Cricket is the passion and preferred pastime of almost every Indian boy. Playing on their village pitch, these boys don't let scarcity of resources hold them back, improvising with an old tire for wickets and plank of wood for a bat.

What Makes This a Photo of the Day? This is a great example of an image and caption reinforcing each other. The framing of the player within the tire got my attention right away and also underscored the photographer’s comment about the resourcefulness of the players. —Alexa Keefe, Photo of the Day editor
