Game of Towers

Photograph by Geovien So, National Geographic Your Shot

Sometimes called the “Paris of the east,” the city of Hangzhou in eastern China rose to its reputation with an appropriate set piece—a replica of the Eiffel Tower. Your Shot member Geovien So waited for the golden hour to capture a shot of the famous silhouette while, in the foreground, local residents play a postwork game of basketball.

So’s shot was recently featured in the Daily Dozen.
