Photo of the Day (10.19.08)

Was your week a blur like mine was? I think this photo, by Flickr user JasonBechtel, is an apt photographic metaphor. Doesn’t it just “feel” fast? I love the sense of movement and the way the background blurs while parts of the cheetah’s body stay in focus. You might also think Jason took his cheetah photo on safari in Africa, right? Wrong. It was actually taken at the Cincinnati Zoo. Just goes to show you needn’t go far from home to get some great photos.

Have any great travel photos you’d like to share with the world? Why not add them to the Gadling photo pool on Flickr? We might just choose it as our Photo of the Day.
