Taj Mahal at dawn

Taj Mahal at dawn

The Taj Mahal at dawn. This is one of those instances where I lugged my tripod around northern India only to find that I wasn’t allowed to take it into the Taj Mahal compound ! I’ve been told since that I should carry a bag of lentils to substitute for a tripod when I need one. Handy tip, although not one I’ve remembered at any point when it would’ve proved useful.

  1. Oh my gosh, this is exquisite!! I love that the woman is in focus and the Taj Mahal is not, though clearly focused enough to see it! Lovely composition and depth of field. Truly. Wonderful photo!!

    1. I don’t know. But those were the rules when I went. You had to leave the tripod at the front desk. As well as your mobile phone, if I remember correctly.

    1. A bag of lentils is sturdy enough to rest a camera on, and usually you can get them in any market or supermarket. The challenge then is to find a wall or shelf in the right place and at the right height to rest it on. As I said, I’ve never got around to doing it. I just hold my breath and hope for the best !
