Agra is most famous for the Taj Mahal. However are you aware that the Taj Mahal is just one of three world heritage sites that can be found in Agra? The other two notable sites are Fatehpur Sikri and the Agra Fort.
Just an hour drive from Agra is the abandoned city of Fatehpur Sikri. This site was the first planned city of the Mughals and also the first one in Mughal architecture, a style that combines elements from Persian, Islamic, and Indian architectural styles. It served as the Mughal Empire’s capital for only 14 years and had to be abandoned because the water supply was unable to sustain the growing population. Today, this UNESCO World Heritage Site has become a popular tourist destination.
A trip to Agra is only complete with a visit to the Agra Fort. If you have already visited the Taj Mahal earlier, remember to keep the tickets as you are entitled a discount off the admission tickets for the fort. The fort with its high enclosure red sandstone walls is visible from afar. Within the complex, you can visit the beautiful palaces, the hall of public audience, gardens and mosques made of white marble. Be mesmerized by the intricate carvings on the sandstone and beautiful white marble, it is really an impressive sight. From the fort, you can also catch a full panoramic view of the Taj Mahal.
There are certain types of photographs that we lomographers just can't get enough of no matter how much we've already taken them. The silhouette is one of them, and the staggering number of such photographs that can be found in the alone community is a strong proof of its popularity.
Countless lives meet one another at this busy intersection everyday. Some are aware but most of the time, nobody even gives a second glance at things. And in a matter of minutes, three lives intertwine as the traffic lights change.
One of the great things about photography is that we can look at the world and preserve that image on print instead of just looking at it again and again in our heads. Also, we can create a world as we’d like it to be – with everything just the way we like them.

While I have been making attempts to do some street photography in the past two years, I must confess that I've let my introverted side take over countless times, resulting in half-baked (and sometimes half-hearted) snaps. However, once I started letting go of my inhibitions and just immerse myself in the task and experience, I found that street photography forcing my eyes open on so many things.
If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
