"When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great, and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be." - Patanjali

Taj Mahal

So I wanted to show some pics of the Taj you may not normally see, so heres a take of a few...

A silloutette from a roof top restaurant...


From behind the Taj, just before the banks of the Yamuna...

Ok, this more ordinary, but yeah, its the Taj...

Bet you haven't seen one with a particularly grizzly looking Me...

Taj Blue...

Post script: its really quite easy to just see the entire monument through the lens or screen of a camera, and I almost did that. I had to literally say to myself, "stop, and look!" and when you do, the wonderment which washes over you is quite amazing. You stop look, turn around, and then trun back, just to make sure its really there!

That said, I also felt that this was such a unique opportunity that I didn't want to miss out on anything, and kept racking my brains for any other picture opportunities. And so tom, I hope to be there for sunrise...
