This Month in Photo of the Day: The Stories Behind Your Shots

"The snow season in Japan is long … but Tokyo receives only small amounts of snow," says Danilo Dungo, a member of our Your Shot community. Dungo captured this shot in Shibuya, a busy commercial district known for the crowds of crisscrossing pedestrians that stream over a large intersection. "My hand was numb and soaking wet," says Dungo, who tried "to capture the expressions of the people passing me by."
