This week’s #FriFotos* theme is SPECIAL MOMENTS, and what’s more special than a child’s hope for the future? Even though it’s sappy, it’s true. That’s why we chose a photo of a family preparing to launch a wish lantern into the night’s sky to celebrate the new year in Phuket, Thailand — though it’s a tradition on special occasions year round. Zhi Wang submitted this magical picture to our My Shot community photo gallery.
