It was this overcrowding—and a desire to depict the reality of the situation—that inspired his shot of passengers at the Kamalapur Railway Station. "I was taking several shots, but I was waiting for an interesting moment, and suddenly this little child looked at me." Check out the bold new look and feel of Your Shot, where you can share photos, take part in assignments, lend your voice to stories, and connect with fellow photographers from around the globe.
