Photo of the Day (11-4-09)

A close-up view of a building’s features is one way to show it off its beauty This Buddhist temple’s door is a perfect example. LadyExpat, who took this photo in Daejeon, South Korea, moved in for an intimate look so that the textures and nuances of the blue paint, the worn wood and the metal are a study of contrasts. Plus, think of the story they tell of the people who have passed through these doors over the years.

If you have a photo of contrasts and textures you’d love to show off, send it our way at Gadling’s Flickr photo pool. It may be chosen as a Photo of the Day.
