Photo of the Day (9/19/07)

I am so fond of this picture. Bennyjewell just posted it yesterday. The person in the window behind the frosted glass is actually a mannequin. According to the tag list, this was shot in Paris. The photographer said that he shouted out just as the woman was passing by so she would look his way. I’m impressed with how perfectly she is framed in contrast to the mannequin. This is is certainly a case of being at the right place at the right time and having your camera ready–also, not being afraid to get the shot that you envision. Hopefully, the woman was not too perturbed. One of my favorite photo essay books is Ageless Mind and Spirit: Faces and Voices from India’s Elderly. This photo reminds me of those.

If you’d like your photos to be considered for a Photo of the Day, post them at Gadling’s Photo Pool on Flickr. All sorts of subjects catch our eye.
