Photo of the Day (9.29.09)

Today’s Photo of the Day comes from Milan-based photographer, il lele. This photo was taken in the city of Fatehpur Sikri, in the state of Uttar Pradesh, India. It’s a great moment captured – and it’s easy to appreciate the simplicity & contrast of the image. Il lele has alot of great portraits and environment shots on Flickr, so take the time to check them out.

Fatehpur Sikri was constructed in 1570, and served as the capital of the Mughal empire until 1585. That year, it abandoned for unknown reasons – but is now regarded as a center of architectural inspiration. The city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, featuring several important religious and secular buildings.
