Photo of the Day

a street scene reflected on a window in Montpellier, France
January 27, 2016


Your Shot member Yuri Rasin found a clever way to capture the scene in Place de la Comédie, Montpellier, France’s central square: reflected on the window of the local tourism office. “My intention was to avoid making a cliché tourist photo of the [city’s] main promenade,” he explains. The decor within the office window seemed an unexpected yet appropriate backdrop for his “view of the city on a hot summer day.”
