On the steps of ghats on a river in Kolkata, India, a setting sun was interrupted by blue clouds. Your Shot photographer Abhishek Murmu happened to be standing right where the sky split in two. #Yourshot by @abhishekmurmu

#Yourshot by @juliemayfengphotos.
Life goes on despite the steady monsoon rain in Kolkata, India. “[The] weather is extremely hard to predict,” says Julie Mayfeng of the Indian rainy season, which typically lasts from July to September. “At the time [this photo was taken], I was eating lunch at a street café. Suddenly it started to shower. I borrowed an umbrella from a stranger and ran out into the street. Although I was wet through and through, I was able to capture this fantastic scene.”

#Yourshot by Sarmistha Bera. Wearing a mask that represents a character from Hindu mythology, this dancer in Purulia, a city in West Bengal, India, performs a Chhau dance. The dancers play out scenes from mythological events, often performing at festivals and special occasions. In Purulia, the dance form “exhibits the spontaneity of folk art,” writes Yourshot photographer Sarmistha Bera. “This dance form is sustained and developed by the people of Purulia.”

#Yourshot by Eric Kruszewski. Street performers sometimes line the path leading to Jaisalmer Fort's entrance. As tourists pass by, the locals encourage them to watch their family's special talents. One family is proud of their daughter's ability to traverse a tightrope in a rather unique fashion; she does it on her knees (with the assistance of a metal plate) and pushes herself along only with her toes. Under the cover of circling birds, with the fort illuminated in the early morning, this young girl performs her soaring, balancing act.

#Yourshot by Svetlana Eremena. There is cold weather in North India in the winter and in the beginning of the spring. That's why people put old clothes (which they are not using anymore) on goats.
