• VISIONS | YOUR SHOT Peter Root Guernsey, Channel Islands Root, 33, spent 40 hours building this city-inspired art installation out of stacks of staples. It stood for three weeks in a Channel Islands financial building before toppling. Root crouched low to get this immersive shot of a section detail---about one-fifth of the whole piece. Gary Stubelick Boston, Massachusetts A prolonged exposure let Stubelick, 58, create this July 4 photo in Boston. "I like the irony of a fire hydrant on fire," he says, "and a 'fire source' like sparklers implying water flowing from a fire hydrant." New Views of the City Readers from all over the world sent in their city-themed photographs for this month's Your Shot. These are two of our editors' favorites---but we'd like to see more. Get out your camera and show us how you see your own city (or any other staple in your photographic repertoire). Find more information at ngm.com/yourshot.
