The Children’s Place

Photograph by Masami Murooka, National Geographic Your Shot

Looking like playfully scattered confetti, children sled a snowy hill in Shizukuishi, Japan. Your Shot member Masami Murooka calls it an “extraordinary playground,” which emerged at the side of a large festival’s parking lot. “Anyone trying to photograph only the festival would never notice this place,” Murooka writes.

Murooka’s picture was featured in Your Shot’s Daily Dozen.

I had to look really closely at this. The contrast of kids clothes against the white is great, really makes the activities stand out. Lots happening when you look closely.
