"Catching your eye ..."
"... with Aishwarya Rai".
The pictures of former super-model, turned Bollywood Star Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in this street scene of Agra's Taj Ganj area not only catches the eye of a vary tourist looking for a motor-riksha (tuk-tuk), attracting customers to the nifty riskha-wallah who decorated his riksha with the most beautifully Indian woman on earth.
The eye-catcher also attrated me as a photographer and also catches any possible viewers to spend some time with an otherwise quite ordinary picture.
There are two other lines of view as well, one the woman looking from the half ripped-off poster on the lightpost on the right hand side and secondly the risksha driver turning his back talking to someone unseen in the background.
He was actually the driver of "Aishvarya's ricksha" and a quite welcoming guy to have a chat with, even after realizing that i was only taking a picture and not going for a ride with him and Aishvarya Rai for a sightseeing trip around Agra.
I am taking an exception of the blog's concept here, which is to give one picture and the "story" behind it to you and provide a "close-up" shot of the scene for your convenience.
