A Clean Getaway

Children make their escape during bath time in the Kaliganga River. Your Shot member Apu Jaman captured the photo-worthy moment while observing the everyday activities of villagers in Manikganj, Dhaka, Bangladesh. While standing on the Tora Bridge, Jaman noticed these children constructing a raft while they and other villagers bathed, and he watched as they got to work. “I just waited about one and a half hours to take this shot,” he writes, “and the photo was taken [during] a regular, daily life situation. If anyone visits Tora Bridge in Manikganj during the winter season, he or she will see this scene.” This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our storytelling community where members can take part in photo assignments, get expert feedback, be published, and more.
