Hanging out before school
The look of agony after realizing I have no interest in getting a ride
Welcome to The Taj Mahal
Voila! These next few pictures were taken by exchanging picture for picture with randoms. I take one of them with theirs, they take one of me with mine.
Hooker from Macau who sat on the electro-bus next to me.
The universal asian symbol
aha! Indians memorize postcards and then take pretend to be photographers. This reminds me of Costanza http://ericsmithrocks.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/04/george_costanza.jpg
All the pollution has made the Taj less emphatic than it used to be as it's covered in smog.
And so begins my personal photo-session.
I hired a very gung-ho "photographer" for 150 rupees and he led me through all the postcard pictures
Max Payne Ilya reappears
Not quite 'Atlas Shrugged'
Looks like a sitcom ad for the subway
It got a little less hazy and i was able to take some reflector shots
Back to the 'modeling'
My esteemed photographer. Notice how he's in focus? I'm not in focus on half of the ones he took. Bastard
I got everyone else to leave and it was just me and the Taj
Reminds me of the family guy episode where Peter decides to become a philosopher like his great grandfather. "Wife: get a job! -- Peter:.....but why?"
Done with my photog session I began to roam and take my own artsy pics.
Side view of the Taj
Anything for the perfect shot
They must have jumped 10 times until they got a picture they liked
Is that a big camera you have or are you just happy to see me?
He's not from South Carolina
Other giant buildings within the Taj
I have no idea who this clown was but after seeing him I demanded a picture

Making our way to Agra Fort.
Everyone wants to be in pictures
This baby just struck me as odd, even in India
Rico Suave wears a fanny pack
Simple, but I like this picture a lot.
Agra Fort was enormous and had tons of these open spaces with columns everywhere. Very impressive
The thought didn't cross my mind
Rico and his gf
Had to take a pic with her! Unfortunately, as we have learned, when you give your camera to others, you're never going to be in focus.
As you enter and leave the fort, you have 50 people trying to sell you random shit
My tuk tuk driver. Not the friendliest face
