Early Morning Workout

As I walked up through the old city to the Jodhpur Fort I came across this guy working out. He’d clank the dumbbells together with each repetition, and the sound would echo along the walls of the fort like church bells.

On the banks of the Yamuna River

Sometimes things don’t go quite as expected. I’m standing on the bank of the Yamuna River with the Taj Mahal right in front of me. My favorite shots from the afternoon, however, are the goat herders that were wandering along the dusty riverbank. The last rays of sun created a glow on everything they touched. Magic.

Vary your Angles (Part 4) What’s the story

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.
