It was my first time ever seeing the Taj Mahal. I had been there before around 20 years ago, but could not step inside the premises.
Over these 20 years it had occupied a mythical place in my mind, supported by photographs of so many other photographers who presented the monument with their own vision.
When I visited it finally, I was already on a spree to chase symmetry in my photographs (this image is not cropped OR straightened), and decided to capture it at its simplest. Face to face.
My very first Taj Mahal image ladies & gentlemen.
