Read his travel essay on one of India's premier growth cities

Looking inside a queen's tomb: A man peers inside the tomb of the wife of one of Golconda's kings. The tomb is inside the great Qutb Shahi Tombs complex in Hyderabad, India.

Another interior perspective: Negative image of the beautiful interior of the great mosque (photo in Constantino's Hyderabad essay), with shapes that reminded the writer of both Ottoman and Andalusian interiors.

Maia's behind: The writer took a photo of his friend, Maia, taking a photograph of one of the memory corridors of the Qutb Shahi tombs.

Ancient pathway: A stunning memory corridor of one of the Qutb Shahi tombs in sepia.

Striking details of a Golconda fort parapet: The shapes are unique and invite the foreigner to imagine what it would have looked like in its heyday, with sentries actually manning the walls.
