Train Station, India

This Month in Photo of the Day: Your Photos

India seems to be constantly in motion, a country that continues to shift before your eyes. As travelers, we also seem to be on a pendulum, shifting back and forth through space, and often end up at hubs of transit. I took this photograph while waiting for a train in Rajasthan, India. The woman walking by was also on a journey, and our very different lives overlapped, for just a moment, in this transitional environment.
