Who hasn't seen photos of the Taj Mahal? I almost skipped a visit to Agra on the grounds that I didn't need to see a building I was already well acquainted with. Fortunately, I did go and for the first time in my life I was reduced to tears by a building.
The moral of this story is: if you have an opportunity to visit a world renowned place, just do it!
Anyway, I digress...
I could show you photos of the Taj Mahal and a variety of other famous places and buildings in India, but, in the spirit of this mini-series, I'm going to show you a different view instead.
|Sam sand dunes, Thar Desert|
I prefer to capture people in my photos, if possible.
Failing that, I'll settle for animals.
|Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary|
Or a gorgeous sunset.
But people going about their daily lives are always a source of fascination for me.
Although sacred cows are ubiquitous in towns and cities and the locals barely notice them, it's a thrill for the visitor who bumps into one in a narrow street.
But people photos are my favourite and if I can only capture a silhouette, then so be it.
Please leave a comment if you've enjoyed my snapshot of Rajasthan.
I'll reply when I return from my travels in March.
