    Do city kids today go outside to play anymore? Or are they stuck behind digital screens? As a kid I used to live for my after-school play time. These kids playing in the striking blue alleys of Chefchaouen, Morocco, reminded me of my own daily childhood moments and I asked to photograph them. Laughing they said “play first, photo later” – so I ended up playing with them for a while. Have we lost this precious, carefree moment to digital screens? (Original Colors)

    From Your Shot photographer Shannon Hunt: "It is hard to believe this image was taken in the year 2018. We don't often see children outdoors enjoying outdoor activities. Technology has certainly made this kind of play almost extinct like you state in your caption Shivesh. It is a wonderful rare look at children being children in a beautiful blue setting."
