Berlin, Germany

Photograph by Gunnar Heidar, Your Shot

This Month in Photo of the Day: The Stories Behind Your Shots

I was waiting for the train at Schlesisches Tor station in Kreuzberg, a predominantly Turkish neighborhood in Berlin, when I noticed people passing by below the train platform. I aimed my camera down at the cobblestones and waited a while for some interesting action. I must have shot 30 stills before this woman came walking through the frame. I missed my train but got this shot. —Gunnar Heidar
