What Makes This a Photo of the Day? Those who are frequent followers of the Photo of the Day may have noticed that I have a fondness for pictures that resemble paintings. I love the simplicity of this photograph and the way the slightly out-of-focus couple mirrors the work of art they’re admiring. —Alexa Keefe, Photo of the Day editor
