TMOM01.15.12INDIAMy first trip of 2012 will be a return to India, so I decided to share an image that would tell a story of India in a small detail. The peacock is the national bird of India, and it symbolizes qualities of pride, grace, and mysticism.  At Jaipur Palace in Rajasthan, I was intrigued by the colorful architectural details found throughout the palace and adorning the many gates and doorways, including the infamous Peacock Gate.  Zooming in for a close-up made for a more interesting photo than they typical shot of the entire gate, whose beauty, like India’s, truly lies in the details.
