Boatman of Mathura

April 27

While taking pictures of Hindu holy men in the Indian city of Mathura—birthplace of the Hindu god Krishna—Your Shot member Andrew Louis Kleynhans came across a boatman on the Yamuna River who asked to have his picture taken. To get this angle Kleynhans got on his stomach in the boat’s stern, his feet dangling in the water. “In the end … the boatman was very happy with his image,” he writes.
