The two held each other’s water cup until one could drink no more and gave up. Nwadike found it playful and symbolic of their mutual dependence. Dor Kedmi Jerusalem, Israel At one of Israel’s Independence Day celebrations in Jerusalem, Kedmi looked for a way to capture the tra- ditional fireworks show. “I loved how the streetlight shimmered through the soldiers, so I waited there for the show to start,” he says. “ We see hundreds of fireworks photos every day. They ’re easy because they ’re eye-catching. Dor’s stood out. The glow is soft, and the soldiers add context to the celebration.” — Jeanne Modderman, National Geographic photo editor Editor’s Choice Daily Dozen Editors pick 12 photos submitted online each day.
