Photographer's Note

This is another photographic representation of Taj Mahal. One of the Seven Wonders, located in Agra, India. Note the right centre of the frame and you would see the Taj Mahal inside the globules.

What are these globules?

These are water droplets from an ancient fountain in front of Taj Mahal, shot at high shutter speed, which froze them. When the droplets froze, each of them became a lens with an inverted image of the Taj behind.

In photoshop, i have cropped to compose, tweaked the contrast and rotated the image 180 degree. The dark inverted pointed arch door that you see is the Taj's main entrance.

Well well, I wanted to shoot the drops of the fountain at high speed but this result I must confess was an accidental. Nonetheless, we all get great accidental shots that gives us name and fame. Don't we?
