NatGeo – Pictures We Love: Best of December


Before the Crash

Photograph by Rahul Talukder, My Shot

A man attempts to save his boat from crashing into another in Dhaka, Bangladesh, in a picture submitted to National Geographic’s Your Shot in December.

About 15 million people live in the crowded city of Dhaka. (Read about Bangladesh’s population boom in National Geographic magazine.)

Why We Love It

“The eye-catching angle of this picture lays bare the struggles of these boatmen.”—Chris Combs, news photo editor

“The green, graphic watermelons initially distract the viewer from the serious situation at hand. It’s incredible to see this man attempt to physically overcome the two crushing boats surrounding his ship. Without the aerial viewpoint, the man stretched above his fruit, this image would not be as striking.”—Sarah Polger, senior photo editor
