It is always interesting when you show up somplace random and start asking people to take their photographs. Some people are shy while others present themselves and demand you take a picture. Some people ask for money, others refuse to accept it when you try to give it to them.
This photo I took in the market in Agra. The woman gave me permission to take her photo and then refused to look at me. So I just waited patiently until she glanced over to see if I was still there and snapped this shot.
I took my wife to see the Taj Mahal and they told us how the King built this for his 3rd wife, now she expects me to build her something similar. The Taj is one of the many places I have been recently that does not allow tripods. I instead had to get down on my knees and stick my head next to dog poo to get this shot.
What’s the craziest thing you have done to get a photo?
Walking through the market in Agra was like colorful Chaos. Everywhere you look there was color texture and interesting people. I almost got run over snapping photos and not paying attention to the cars and motorcycles. Here are a few of the most interesting people I ran into.
