This Month in Photo of the Day: Your Photos

"Be sincere: it never crossed your mind to want to see yourself live? You pay attention to living for yourselves, and rightly, with no thought of what in the meanwhile you might be for the others; not because you care nothing about the opinion of others: on the contrary, you care a great deal; but because you live in the blissful illusion that the others, outside, must picture you to themselves as you picture yourself." —Luigi Pirandello

What Makes This a Photo of the Day? The framing and simplicity are what work for me here. I like catching a glimpse of this lone woman between the passing cars, imagining that a second later, she would be gone. —Alexa Keefe, Photo of the Day editor
