Dream Trip entrant baiwenli shot today's featured Dream Trip entry, Gal Pals, on a trip to India.
The image is a mix of movement and color that was captured in a faraway
land but which represents a familiar scene to the photographer.
"Inside the gates of the Taj Mahal I was overwhelmed by what I saw," baiwenli writes. "It was hard to absorb it all. But then this group of gal pals walked by. It was the Indian version of me out for the day with my girlfriends. This picture now hangs in my kitchen, and every time I look at it I remember that deep down everybody is pretty much the same."
