Approaching the Taj

The Taj Mahal is an extremely crowded place! People from all over India, which tends to have a lot of people, come visit this mausoleum from every corner of the country. It’s right near the northern border of the country, and I know first hand how difficult the journey can be to get to this point.

Just beyond one of the official entrances to the Taj is the interior of a huge gatehouse, that was teaming with people trying to get a closer look. I held the camera high in the air after trying to position myself as centered as possible to try to capture a sense of the huddled masses.

  • Wow, that’s a lot of people! Great framing!

  • All those pictures of a deserted taj taken at dawn, but somehow I always imagined that it would be choked with people during the day, I see that indeed it is.

  • Great portrayal of the crowd, Trey!! Must be a fascinating place to visit!!! Thanks for another look at a part of the world we can only imagine!!!

    Awesome shot. From the front side, you can hardly ever get a shot without people in it. You used them to your advantage. Makes for a great picture.
