Photo of the Day (9-3-08)

Matt Coats wrote in his description about this picture that he took it from a “secret vantage point” in Guatemala. I’m reminded about the time I stood on a street corner in Hoi An, Vietnam taking pictures of people in various groupings as they passed by on bicycles or cyclos. It took several shots to get the few that were halfway decent.

I wonder where Coats was standing and how did he find his vantage point. Is he in a shed? There is a towel hanging in the shadows. The blues and the reds in this picture are what first caught my attention. The framing could not be more perfect.

If you’ve captured an image from a vantage point that served you well, send it our way at Gadling’s Flickr Photo Pool. It could become a Photo of the Day.
