Carousel, Wales

This Month in Photo of the Day: Your Photos

In the middle of a long journey in the U.K., while walking at Cardiff Bay in Wales, I was distracted by children screaming in happiness on a carousel. I could hardly remember the last time I was on one of those but could clearly remember the joy.

What Makes This a Photo of the Day? The whole of this photograph, from the expression of glee on the girl to her hair flowing behind her, conveys the feeling of joy in motion. And I like that she is dead center—right in the middle of the fun. —Alexa Keefe, Photo of the Day editor
