Photo of the Day (12.29.08)

I’m loving this image of the “Banana Girl” taken by StrudelMonkey in Cambodia — the colours are fantastic. Also, you can’t help but notice the details: the dirt under her fingernails, on her vibrant dress — she works hard for her living, selling bananas so that tourists can feed the monkeys nearby. Hard work clearly doesn’t dim her lovely smile, though. Beautiful shot.

If you’ve got some great travel shots you’d love to share, be sure to upload them to the Gadling pool on Flickr. We might just pick one as our Photo of the Day.
