A Golden Moment

Photograph by Md Rafayat Haque Khan, National Geographic Your Shot

"Early on a winter morning during Ramadan, I went to the bank of the Buriganga River near the Sadarghat Boat and Launch Terminal in Dhaka, Bangladesh," writes Your Shot member Md Rafayat Haque Khan. "I saw a few boys swimming and playing in the river. This scene brought me back to the simpler days of being a child and caught in small moments that seemed so magical—such a serene, peaceful [moment], the kid representing the golden moment of life."

Khan's picture was featured in the Your Shot Daily Dozen.

The young boy in utter relaxation, and peace, after some 'hard' playing with his friends.The disturbed water to the left of the frame says that maybe he just jumped in.  If people could do this kinda thing on and off, their stress levels would drop a whole heap. Not a by the way, but a real good shot, thanks.  j.e.s........
