Photo of the Day (10.25.09)

A famous landmark need not be the subject of your travel photos. As Flickr user justin fain demonstrates in today’s choice, sometimes an alternate perspective is all that’s needed to make your photo shine. The wonderful texture of the binoculars, coupled with the blurry silhouette of the lighthouse in the back, lend this image a great sense of depth and visual interest. You almost feel like you’re right there on the seaside, ready to take a look for yourself.
