Guaranteed to Raise a Smile
Photograph by Mirco Balboni, National Geographic Your Shot
Musicians relax after a daylong photo shoot near the town of Renazzo in Emilia-Romagna, Italy. “My intention was to capture the joy that these guys have making music together,” writes Mirco Balboni, a member of our Your Shot community. “The members of the band kept playing and joking as they entered the field. At that point, I saw that the situation was perfect—the evening light was great and they were carefree in the field, as if they were still children. I saw the happiness in their faces and the joy of playing together.”
Balboni’s picture recently appeared in Your Shot’s Daily Dozen.
