Photo of the day 2.8.10

Portraiture remains my favourite form of photography, and something in this image shared by borderfilms(Doug) really spoke to me. It could be the beckoning expression of the woman, Mary, who owns the shop, or the curious face of the little boy in the back — or it could just be that this shop looks like the many I used to visit in my homeland of Trinidad. It’s a great reminder that wherever we go, there’s always something familiar. Great image.

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.
