In the late afternoon I crossed to the other side of the River Yamuna to see the Taj Mahal from the Mehtab Bagh Park. Knowing I already had the classic postcard shot of the Taj, I wanted to be a little more creative. The shape of the Taj Mahal is so distinctive, it is recognizable even when out of focus. I first tried a shot with some low hanging flowers, and then moved onto barbed wire.
These shots of the Taj Mahal behind the wire, are examples of capturing a story in a single image. Of course, unless you provide a detailed caption, it is up to the viewer to determine exactly what the photograph means.
The photos with the barbed wire are interesting considering that Shahjahan used to see the Taj during his last years, while held captive in the Red Fort by his son, Aurangjeb.
