Photo of the Day (10-1-08)

A bit windy isn’t it? This shot by Lola Akinmade in Spain captures the image of the flying coat perfectly. It almost looks like there are imaginary wires pulling it upwards. Can’t you feel the struggle to walk as the wind presses against this man’s face and whips through his hair? The stillness of the background in contrast to the man’s movement adds to the action. This is a right place at the right moment kind of shot–a perfect click of the shutter.

If you’ve taken some pictures with contrast, or just about anything of interest, send it our way at Gadling’s Flickr photo pool for consideration as a Photo of the Day pick.
