The Perfect Taj Picture

The Taj Mahal is really everything it is cracked up to be. When we went to Agra to see it a couple of weeks ago, we were both sort of surprised that it actually does live up to the hype: it really is the most beautiful building in the world. I enjoy the fact that there is a building out there that everyone agrees is the most beautiful, though I wonder if people that travel in architectural circles have some cynical view of that. Anyway, when you see the most beautiful structure in the world, the main thing is to get a good picture, and April happened to overhear the secret of the perfect Taj photo: on the far side of the reflecting pool, rest your camera on the ground and tilt up towards the building. Now you know.
