I get to do a Valentine’s Day Mini with these two, and I’m so excited to hang with them again! There are still some Valentine’s minis up for grabs, message me if you’re in need of a sweet gift for your hunny that you BOTH will enjoy forever 😍❤️
Hawa Mahal (“Palace of Winds" or "Palace of the Breeze") is a palace in Jaipur, India. It is constructed of red and pink sandstone - though our camera didn’t do enough justice. 😅 The original intent of the lattice design was to allow royal ladies to observe everyday life and festivals celebrated in the street below without being seen, since they had to obey the strict rules of "purdah", which forbade them from appearing in public without face coverings.
I remember the exact second I took this photo. With sunset coming in strong, there was a flurry of people at the observatory, and I was waiting for just the right moment to snap a picture without anyone interrupting my frame. And then this girl walks up the stairs in that exact moment. I was irritated for a split second and took another once she was standing by the wall, but honestly, once in post, I’ve decided that I love this shot so much more than the more perfect one. It feels like it’s taken from her perspective. Even though I was there, it makes me feel like I’m standing right next to her as she walks onto the roof.
