A Clean Getaway

Photograph by Apu Jaman, National Geographic Your Shot

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.”
