Taj ——————- As we arrived, the biggest thing that was noticeable was that the Taj had lost it’s charm. I wish I could sugarcoat it but it was really a devastating moment for me as I had seen this beautiful monument pearly white only 10 years ago. The pollution and the lack of regulation in nearby areas has caused one of the wonders of the world to deteriorate. My thoughts in these types of situations are always “I wonder if a pressure washer would help?” – sad. It did help me create of the my favorite photos of all time though. I’m not sure if I will ever take a better photo than this. This to me captures the essence of the Taj Mahal past and present. Everybody usually thinks of this monument as if it’s a beautiful palace and people used to live there. In reality, its a tomb, there are bodies buried under this structure. I was able to create an image to try to represent the Taj Mahal in a “tombstone” like state with a grungy surroundings.
Foglanta ——————- Fog rolling through Atlanta. After moving into the city, one of the biggest things that blew me away was the amount of fog that was constantly around in the winter. One night, as the beautiful fog started rolling in, I made my way to Jackson st to capture this long exposure. Hotlanta in the summer, foglanta in the winter.
