Photo of the Day (11/15/07)

You know you're a long, long way from home when you come across a yurt (unless, of course, you've happened upon some local hippie commune).

If there was a teepee, tent, cabin or any other type of domicile in this shot, it simply wouldn't be as rugged and exotic. A yurt, however, has a way of changing the landscape the moment your eyes rest upon its pleasant around shape. And, of course, time stands still. This shot could have been taken hundreds of years ago. Or yesterday. Except there is some type of strange blue box in the background. An outhouse, perhaps?

Anyway, this particular shot by Uncorneredmarket was actually a bit nostalgic for me because the first yurt I ever came across was located in the same country as this photo was taken: Kyrgyzstan.
