“It was a rainy day when I visited the Taj Mahal last year,” says Your Shot contributor Marco Parenti. “During my walk to the monument, I noticed this long arcade with a cart at the end. The perspective offered by the sequence of the pillars precisely zooming right onto the cart’s wheel was amazing. The ochre tone was highlighted by the grayish light of the day. [It was] just perfect—everything seemed to be there just waiting for my shot!”
