The Boy at the Temple

    Newer Older

    Outside the gates to Fatehpur Sikri, an Indian boy waits to take my shoes. I pay him a few rupees to keep track of them for me. I walked several miles in bare feet inside and quickly discovered why everyone has such dirty feet. It's always been a pet peeve of mine, but, like dropping your keys in a river of lava, I just had to let it go.

      Great candid shot, puts things in perspective to the shrine
