Photo of the Day: Woman at Ellora Caves, India
Dream Trip 2009 is up and running! For inspiration, here's another of our favorite entries from last year:
"Pink," the legendary Vogue editor Diana Vreeland once famously observed, "is the navy blue of India." The style arbiter was talking about the bright color's ubiquity on the Subcontinent. But Dream Trip finalist Linda Morrison's winning entry, captured at the Ellora Caves, a temple complex in the Indian state of Maharashtra, attests to the hue's power. The vibrant sari stands in stark relief against the basalt walls and makes the viewer contemplate the contrast, and the timelessness of India itself.
"I happened to spot this Indian woman walking through the site," Morrison writes. "The vision reminded me of the continuity of life in this ancient country, and the place of religion in the lives of the people of India. It is not unlikely that this scene could have occurred centuries ago instead of in the year 2008."
