Red Sandstone Archway - Taj Mahal Jawab

On either side of the Taj Mahal tomb are red sandstone buildings with beautiful archways and hidden courtyards. This is the eastern building, called a jawab (answer), which seems to mostly exist to architecturally balance the building on the other side of the Taj which serves as a mosque.

Taj Mahal Reflection, Yamuna River, Textured

Taj Mahal Reflection, Yamuna River, Textured

The backside of the Taj Mahal is just as stunning as the front. This Taj Mahal reflection photo was taken from the other side of the Yamuna River which almost serves as a moat to the Taj.

I took this photo just before sunset. This is a first for me since I've never applied textures to a photo before. Let me know what you think. This photo was partially inspired by Trey Ratcliff's excellent work, especially with textures. He also has a shot similar to mine, though I didn't realize that until later.

Bare Feet and Colorful Saris

Bare Feet and Colorful Saris

Most visitors to the Taj Mahal go barefooted which adds to the experience since you're walking on smooth marble. This detail photo shows some women wearing their colorful saris walking in front of the main entrance to the tomb.

Face of the Taj Mahal

The goal of this photo is to show you the intricate details of the Taj Mahal, but at the same time give you a sense of scale to realize the incredible size of the Taj Mahal. Bonus points for those who spot the 2 people perched on high.

As with my previous post, this image is from a single RAW photo processed as an HDR from 3 images outputted 1.5 stops apart.

Flowing Color on Marble - Beneath the Taj Mahal

A woman and her bright sari form a perfect foreground to the exquisite Taj Mahal in Agra, India. I stood here for quite a while waiting for this photo, while our guide got restless. I had an idea of what I wanted, but there were so many people that it was hard to get a clean shot.

Life at the Railway Station - New Delhi Railway Station, India

Four characters converge in this early morning scene from New Delhi showing movement and motionlessness. I took this while waiting for the train to Agra to see the Taj Mahal (Nov 13, 2008).

Living on Mountains of Tea - Darjeeling, India

Two school kids walking home in the mountainous town of Darjeeling, West Bengal, India. These kids live amidst ubiquitous tea fields and beautiful himalayan peaks in the distance. The mountain visible on the horizon is Kangchendzonga (or Khangchendzonga depending on who you ask), the third tallest mountain in the world (Mount Everest is farther west). This region of India is quite distinct since it lies so close to Nepal.

A World Away - Glimpse of a Child's Life in Rural India

This child's life is a world away from most of us. It's hard to imagine what her days are like in rural India helping her family work in the fields.

Cycle Rickshaw in Early Dawn - India

An Indian man and his wife returning from a trip with suitcases and travel bags, riding a cycle rickshaw from the train station to their house. Though this was my first time to India, this scene looked very familiar and made me feel right at home since rickshaws are so common throughout Asia.

Teasing a Water Buffalo

Teasing a Water Buffalo

Though usually slow and docile, I've seen water buffalo move quickly at times. This dynamic scene passed quickly as we drove by, so I never got a chance to see the outcome of these kids' playful river banter with one of these beasts of burden. But I'm certain this wasn't the first time they had been swimming with a water buffalo.

A House of Golden Bamboo

A man sitting on the "porch" of his bamboo house in the heart of India, with golden light adding to the tranquil scene. I took this photo out the car window as we bounced by. I would have loved to stop, but we were on our way somewhere at the time.

Early Morning Chai - Darjeeling, India

A boy enjoying his morning Chai in chilly Darjeeling. My visit to Darjeeling was definitely a highlight of my time in India November 2008. I realized that I haven't posted many photos from that trip here (only Taj Mahal and Kangchendzonga panorama), so I will post some more here in the coming weeks.

Kangchendzonga is the third tallest mountain in the world, visible from Darjeeling, India. I also posted an interactive high-res version of this panorama just like I did for the Taj Mahal: Kangchendzonga High Resolution Panorama
