A security guard wearing a uniform was working on the other side of the gate of a big building in Kolkata. When he noticed my SLR camera, he came to the gate. At first, I thought I was condemned for taking photos. Yet it wasn't true. I might be an accent in his ordinary life. He looked at me while he smiled faintly.

Seeing him grabbing the grid, I felt as if he wanted to go out of the gate. He looked like a prisoner. However, it was difficult to know which side of the gate was a prison.
