Photo of the Day (8/14/06)

Recently, on my personal site, I wrote about how my favourite part of travel wasn’t seeing the famous monuments or landmarks, but rather the connections that I make with the people of the countries where I visit. I think that’s why I was moved by this photo of a local Cameroon barber giving a tourist a haircut, taken by the indefatiguable localsurfer. He says, “Everywhere we go we have to have at least one photo of a barber shop. Dunno why, it’s just what we do.” I’m guessing it’s because he values travel connections as much as I do.

If you’d like one of your travel photos to be featured in our Photo of the Day, be sure to visit our Flickr Pool, and upload your best shots there. Every day we’ll pick one to be featured here on Gadling.
