Romance in a Crowd

Few cities are more romanticized than Paris, and Your Shot member Chenkun Long was able to capture that spirit in this image from New Year’s Eve, taken near Palais de Chaillot and the Eiffel Tower. “People were cheering for joy [at midnight], and this couple started to kiss and wished to have a romantic and happy 2016,” Long writes.
