Rice Mill, Bangladesh

This Month in Photo of the Day: Your Shots

A rice mill worker rests in Bangladesh.

What Makes This a Photo of the Day? The careful framing of the worker, his tools, and the rice creates a scene that is almost iconic in its simplicity. With nothing else to distract the eye, we are able to appreciate this worker and the work he has just completed. —Alexa Keefe, Photo of the Day editor
