During my recent trip to India on our Taj Traveller, as well as enjoying the magnificent architecture of the monuments and the stunning landscapes, I was struck by the beautiful and friendly people of India, who were perfect subjects for photos too. Throughout my travels around the Golden Triangle, I tried to capture as many candid moments as I could as well as asking people to pose – a wonderful way to interact and chat to the locals. And as I learnt, Indians where as eager for photos of and selfies with members of our group as we were.
