Photo of the Day (8.15.09)

When I think of the word "silhouette" I think of that old 50's song about a guy watching a couple kissing in the silhouette of a window shade. There's something special about silhouettes that make me want to sigh. This particular photograph also makes me smile. You can tell a lot from the hats the men here are wearing and the exchange is a friendly one between two (or maybe three) cultures.

Based on the title of this photo, "Primera Venta" ("First Sale"), our photographer of the day, penton42, captured a pretty sweet moment in rural Guatemala.

If you have some great travel shots you'd like to share, be sure to upload them to the Gadling pool on Flickr. We might just pick one as our Photo of the Day!
