at sunrise
The Taj
,
Actually, our first good look at India's
7th wonder was in the evening light
from a rooftop bar

Up close it didn't look real

The perfect symmetry is odd against
the rickety city of Agra

From this perspective the colliding of
worlds was clear - rich and poor, ancient
and modern, the Taj a permanent
fixture against a developing skyline

At 4am the next day we walked from our homestay to the
entrance to watch the sunrise
The next morning we woke at 4am to see the
sunrise
,
,
We stuck around in the
grounds well into the early
morning watching the
changing light illuminate
the mausoleum from every
different angle
,
,
Reluctantly we returned to the gates to
leave  and took one last photo of the Taj
now that day was fully broken
