The Wandering Camel at the Taj

When wandering around the outskirts and wilds of the Taj Mahal, where no tourists can be found (you all know I am not fond of clueless tourists that use their flash when they are 500 yards from the subject... you all probably feel the same way!), I found this other wandering camel that stopped for a rest. I don't know what all the brands on his neck are for - although I assume they denote ownership to the boy in the red's family.


I would appreciate your vote for the 2008 Bloggies! I hope you vote for in the "best photography of a weblog" category! :)

    Amazing shot ! Admire the composition.

    Recently, I became a big fan of flash photography and bought lots of flash gear. Flash strobes from Elinchrom and wonderful accessories from SPEELIGHT PRO KIT, a must have thing for outdoor photography. Amazing quality and greatly convenient to stash in your camera bag, these well designed wonderful accessories are collapsible ones. I am sharing it with all the friends who love outdoor photography. Thought of sharing this information with you as well.

    Today, as I started searching Flickr to know who all have used this product, so I could learn from them, found your wonderful images.
