Warmth and Color

A woman in Pushkar, India, flashes a smile for Your Shot community member Lone Israelsen, who submitted this photo. “I love India, so I went there on holiday … with a friend,” Israelsen writes. “We hired a guide in New Delhi and drove to Jaipur and Pushkar, where I shot this picture. Normally I shoot in black and white, but India is so colorful and fantastic, it would be a shame to convert [this image].” This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our storytelling community where members can take part in photo assignments, get expert feedback, be published, and more.
