There was a strong mood (emotion) I felt when I saw this.
The composition reminds me of the famous Da Vinci painting (God and man almost touching fingers).
[forgive me - I am not well versed in Classical Art. I have studied immensely in the life and art of Claude Monet and his contemporaries.]

Last November I visited Taj Mahal for the first time in my life. You hear about Taj Mahal a lot. In fact it is a monument that people around the world identify India with.
I had to wait 22 years to visit Taj and it was worth it. I don't know how to describe that feeling. When you are standing outside the gate in a queue you cannot really see that behind that gate is one of the most beautiful thing that man has ever created and as you pass the gate and see it....it's truly amazing.
This photo was taken by me as soon as I passed the gate.
This was during my all India tour. I also visited many other monuments and places in India. You can take a look at some of my pictures here... Beautiful India
The mood seems to be getting more sombre, so I'll add this (how many can I post in one thread?):
Pride. Liverpool has achieved so much over the years, last year, in particular. Being crowned the European Capital of Culture set of a magnificent wheel of events and construction which ultimately permanently changed its skyline.
