Friendly Reflection

Photograph by Pablo Ponti, National Geographic Your Shot

“It had been raining all day in Luanda, Angola, where we live,” writes Pablo Ponti, a member of our Your Shot community. “Just as the last raindrops fell and the sun broke through the clouds ... I took my daughter and her two best friends out for a snack, and when we approached a large puddle, the opportunity to show their silhouette in the water's reflection was formed in my mind. Since they are best friends, I wanted to show them in a different light, through their feet and their reflections. The kids enjoyed it, and I loved the end result.”
