Love Lives On; Taj Mahal, Agra

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Jennifer Trombino-Schroeder

In February I visited the splendid Taj Mahal in India. Just as I was about to snap a shot of it, a family walked in to the picture: mother, father and small child. I loved how the vibrant orange color of the woman's sari, and the child's lively skipping contrasted with the solemn beauty of the world's most magnificent mausoleum.

Location: Agra, India; state of Uttar Pradesh
