Man's Other Best Friend

The rising sun in Hyderabad, India, silhouettes a boy on his horse through an archway. While a horse won’t cuddle in bed with you, it can still be a companion, writes Your Shot photographer Shiva Krishna: “They're always there to nuzzle you and make your life a better place.”

Krishna's shot was recently featured in the Daily Dozen.
