Photo of the Day (9.21.08)

Doesn’t this image have a great personality to it? Flickr user a31sierra caught this shot of two girls while traveling in Lesotho. Photo portraits can make for extremely rich material for any traveling photographer.

I especially like the expressions on their faces. Both girls manage to maintain a shy body language, but you can still catch the faint smiles that peek out just under the surface of their gaze. The bare brick wall behind the girls further emphasizes their dominance in the photo frame. It also makes a nice complement to Abha’s recent Photo of the Day entry.

Have any great travel photos to share with our readers? Why not post them to our Gadling pool on Flickr? We might just pick it as our Photo of the Day.
