I Heart People Watching (in Agra!)

You know me and my penchant for people watching. I'm sure no one's surprised I've photographed a few interesting people while in Agra. Photos are from Taj Mahal, Agra Fort and the streets of Agra.

And the back view :)



  1. Wow that's a fantastic assortment of the many types of people sharing this experience with you. Most of the photos I see of this historic area (and others, for that matter) are almost without people...I always wonder if the photographers have to get up at the crack of dawn in order to be the only tourists there. I like your take! Thnanks for sharing.

  2. There's something about India, Maria, that can't be described in words as well as in pictures. It's the amazing colors for me...the people, the clothes, the architecture. I'm so glad you have shown all these images. Thank you!

  3. brimming with colors and life,
    agra is such a wonderful place.

  4. especially love the pic w/ the girl in orange and her friend in green. the bird cracked me up!

  10. Wow, love your photos, quite fascinating. People watching isn't something I've done with my camera but maybe I should. The bird is wonderful too!

  11. May I ask what camera you use, these shots are very crisp and have wonderful colours - apart from having great subjects.
