TOURISTS


We have seen very few American tourists so far. Most of the visitors to the Taj are Indian.

Every once in a while I channel the Sartorialist and snap my camera at a stunning, or, at least, surprising outfit.




























I find the brilliance of the colors astonishing; there is no end to the combinations of hues and sparkles.

Against the cool marble, the hot end of the spectrum vibrates.

Immediately after clicking on your blog, I am intrigued. I really like your blog title and the photograph of the couple in India is wonderful. "Channel" the Sartorialist. I love it. I can't get through a day without checking his blog and studying the photos. I even stare at people in my grocery store to see if they are "Sartorialist" worthy!! Silly but oh so much fun!

When I took my pictures of children or adults I always offered to pay them. They all accepted. I would give the money to the kids and some parents grabbed it right from them and others let them keep it. The children love having their picture taken for a few pieces of change. As soon as one sees you taking someone's picture they all come running. I pay them all. The only thing I was advised not to pay for is people begging and especially those begging for milk for their baby which was not their baby, They would take you into the store and buy the milk then when you were out of sight they would take it back, pay some of the money to shop owner and then go out for more. There are men who pick up villagers and bring them to the city to beg.
