Photo of the Day (12.15.08)

One of my favourite subjects when traveling is shooting portraits — to me, nothing really captures the essence of a country or culture like the faces of its people. That’s why when I saw this image of a man celebrating Buddha’s birthday in the Gadling Flickr pool, I stopped cold: I love his exuberance, his unbridled excitement. What a wonderful memory captured. Nice job, TPB, Esq.

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.
