Exploring All Avenues

In Huntington, New York, Your Shot member Juan Osorio’s daughter dreams of a trip that’s out of this world. “[She] wants to fly to the moon,” he writes. “[In this photo], I wanted to create a surreal world with the balloons in which you have several angles of view, like having several cameras showing the landscape and Sophia the astronaut.”
