The Steps to Humayun’s Tomb, Delhi

These are the steps leading up to the tomb. I wasn’t tempted to shoot the steps until the lady arrived and sat at the bottom. Unfortunately, there were one or two tourists at the top of the steps so I waited until they moved on. I changed to a wide-angle lens so I could include her in the scene without her being aware of me photographing her. She seemed to be suffering from the heat (it was 38 degrees that day) and so she took out a handkerchief to mop her brow. That was the moment to take the shot. It almost seems as if she is weeping at the tomb.
