Long exposure of the Taj Mahal at closing time. (From the archives due to time restraints.)

I believe I was mistaken to call yesterday's photo, closing time. Judging by the complete lack of tourists, I believe this was officially closing time when armed officers shepherd people toward the exits. However, due to my shameless groveling skills, I was able to be the last person out of the complex and squeezed in a 30 second exposure as evidence.

First one in, last one out. You can probably guess by the sheer volume of quality Taj photos I took that I surely got my money's worth on "Heritage Day"... at a total cost of zero rupees! I love it when a plan comes together.
