Taj Mahal Detail

A detail of the Taj Mahal that not everyone sees.


When pointing a camera at tourist attractions that millions of people have captured, especially with all the mobile phones and selfie sticks being waved around today, it pays to look for something a little more original.


If anyone can get there, anyone can take a picture, but not everyone can see something a little more artistic.


Moving away from the crowds allows us to compose a detail of the place that has an unique angle to it.


Strong colour, lines, shadow and even a slight reflection all help to give an architectural detail a whole new life of its own.


Is that really the Taj Mahal? Well, it's one of the four 40m high minarets that surround the mausoleum.
