Observation Deck, Tokyo

Photograph by Trisha Ratledge, My Shot

"Thirteen can be a brutal age, with some days feeling like pressure is coming from every direction: academics, peers, athletics," writes My Shot photographer Trisha Ratledge. "On a quiet summer afternoon, finally relaxed, Emma twirled without a care 250 meters above Tokyo. Her laugh echoed across the floor. A beautiful day." The shot was taken on the observation deck of the Roppongi Hills Mori Tower, 52 floors above Tokyo.
