Photo of the Day (9.18.2010)

Is this a kaleidoscope, or a ceiling? I feel like the shapes should shift and circle, like one of my childhood toy kaleidoscopes, or a 70s music video. This is a photo by Flickr user hostelmanagement of Cardiff Castle in Wales, and the gold in the ceiling is the real stuff. Groovy. While I can’t say much about the photographer’s technique, which appears to be similar to my own (point up and shoot), the depth of ceiling is noticeable in the subtle plays of light and shadow – notice the upper right corner, for example. And I swear, my neck hurts just looking at this picturefor too long….

Have any travel photos that might make our heads spin? Upload them to Gadling’s Flickr pool, and we just might choose one for our Photo of the Day feature.
