Photo of the Day (9.26.09)

Having just come from the concrete jungle that is New York City, I’ve come to appreciate the urban landscapes that only large cities can offer. When the sky opens up in bright blue above the towering skyscrapers I have to pinch myself at the great modern progress that the world has made in just a century. There’s something really grand and angular about cities that make them perfect inspiration for photographers.

This particular shot that was taken in Toronto caught my eye because of the great symmetry of the buildings and the cloud positioned perfectly in between. The square shadow on the lower left building adds to its angular appeal, don’t you think?

Today’s Photo of the Day comes to us from bgilbert, a Canadian with a great urban eye. If you have some great travel shots you’d like to share, be sure to upload them to the Gadling pool on Flickr. We might just pick one as our Photo of the Day!
