Kids in the Field
Photograph by Jawed Alam, National Geographic Your Shot
Your Shot member Jawed Alam was passing through a village near the Purulia district of West Bengal, India, when he saw a boy with a goat kid standing in a field of wildflowers. Alam saw the perfect frame in the background of colorful flowers, the boy’s yellow T-shirt, and the black goat. “I quickly adjusted my camera setting and started clicking pictures,” he writes.
Alam’s image was recently featured in Your Shot’s Daily Dozen.
