Category: Spontaneous Moments
Photo and caption by Sam Hawley
I'd just jumped off a boat on the Ganges and was headed somewhere important at the time. That's when I passed this guy sitting crouched on a seat. Through the crowd of people I was washed in with there chanced a moment where we were both caught just staring at each other, as if one looking into the other. No other person nor sound seemed close. And then the moment passed and we both carried on with whatever had possessed us beforehand. Somehow when I looked down at my camera shortly after, there chanced this picture of him still.
