  • Good concept, :)

  • Theo Acworth

    These are beyond amazing, love it.

  • Taste of France

    These are wonderful! I’ve been to most of them, and it’s true that you focus on the “sight” and see and appreciate the surroundings but don’t think to photograph them. That Taj shot is especially fabulous.
