Photo of the Day (11.30.08)

Flickr user jrodmanjr titled this image of San Francisco’s famous prison “Escape from Alcatraz.” I happen to like the play on words, almost as much as I like the perspective of this shot. Any time you’re taking a photo of a famous landmark, it’s fun to try framing it with some nearby objects to add some additional depth and personality. In this case, the chain link fence adds a playful, geometric aspect to the shot, forcing you to give it a second look. Well done!

Do you have any panoramic photos from San Francisco? Or maybe some candid shots from Sweden? Why not share them with our readers at Gadling by adding them to our pool on Flickr? We might just choose one as our Photo of the Day.
