The Taj Mahal. Perhaps the greatest erection a man has bestowed upon a woman. Rightfully so, most observers use their film to capture the elegance and monumentality of the famed white mausoleum, and yet few realize that behind a hum-drum southeast facing wall on the Taj's grounds is a beautiful glowing coral-colored walkway. I happened to come across it by accident, and a friend of mine coming to see what I was photographing plopped his way into the shot above. It is by far my favorite photograph from a very special trip.
Location: Taj Mahal Grounds, Agra, India
