I captured this image on my trip to India last year. It is a depiction of boats at the end of their work day, parked in what would be their version of a pier. The bridge in the background is the Vidyasagar Setu in Calcutta.

I decided to go with a long exposure because it seemed to slow down time with the lazy sense of motion. Something akin to what these boat runners are probably feeling at the end of a hard grueling day. Don't get me wrong, they're far from lazy. They ferry people across the river all day for pennies and I'm sure they'd do it all night too if only their boats were capable of making crossings at night.
