Photo of the Day (1-21-09)

Titled “Afternoon Snack,” this photo by Patrick Powers is a modern day still-life. What a study of light, colors and shapes that capture the mood of a Sunday afternoon in California. The photo was taken at the Ritz-Carlton. Wouldn’t Rembrandt have loved the subtle light on the people in the background and the glint and shimmers of the glass?
