Photo of the Day

Fast Friends

Sunlight and an affable smile beam in a smokehouse in Gambia. “I took this photo on a recent holiday to Gunjur,” Your Shot member Justin Anantawan writes. “One afternoon, I decided to bike [along] the shoreline and came upon a fishery with a multitude of fishing boats and smokehouses. After chatting up one of the local fishermen and buying him some chakri (yogurt and millet), I convinced him to take me around [to] visit his friends.” This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
