You can see the Taj Mahal from the Agra Fort. I wonder if the couple was gazing at the Taj Mahal? There were so many people both at the Taj Mahal and the Agra Fort that it was almost impossible to click a shot without people walking through your composition. After a while, I started enjoying including them in my shots! This is something I rarely do oherwise. I still can’t point my camera to the faces of the strangers most of the time. But if they are not looking in my direction, then it is another matter.

‘Shooting’ children is always easy, but I find it inhumanely embarrassing to ask people ‘May I take your photograph’. So, I can understand when you say you find it find it difficult to ‘shoot’ strangers.But nevertheless, I wish this ‘Sneak Peek’ couple sees this pic in your blog – for a portrait frame in their house.Cheers!
I can understand the frustration waiting for people to move away from ur frame 🙂 i’ve had to wait for abt 2hrs to get a clean shot of the chariot wheel @ hampi!In this case, it turned out to be good in the end – the couple is giving a charm to the frame 🙂 May be its a touch over-exposed, slightly faster shutter wud’ve made the pic sharper too
Ditto with me…I, too, would rather not include people in the frame.:)
Mridula, you had a nice trip, thanks for sharing the photo album too.
People in India love to be clicked. Just smile and ask. 🙂
Sidhu but see the comment below, many belong to the other camp too.WMWC, thanks for sharing your perspective.
Oh god, I wonder why I replied to the last two comments only. So here I go.Kalyan, many thanks for the kind words about the picture. Sandeep, thanks for the tips, next time I will try it out.Priyank, I did enjoy my trip.
Though the couple have their backs to the camera, from their posture and the location you can almost perceive their dreams to soar and break free.
Paradox and both Agra Fort and Taj Mahal was full of such couples.
