effulgence \i-FUL-juhn(t)s\,

The state of being bright and radiant; splendor; brilliance.

Today's word of the day is a pretty happy one. As the sun wasn't really out, these people's smiles were good bright and radiant subjects. But look out for a few friends' cameos here as most strangers aren't open to some creepy photographer shooting their mouths.

The most common concern was that people thought they'd have something in their teeth. Most people didn't, though, and a little photoshop would have helped that anyhow.

That woman at the bottom decided she wouldn't show me her teeth, but that's probably alright. She had stopped to ask me for directions, and I'm sure she felt obligated to say yes when I pressed her for a photo.

For those of you who live where it's not necessarily cloudy and ominous, send in your photos of effulgence in an email and I'll post them up with mine!

Update: Thanks to Meredith for sending this photo of the awe-inspiring St. Peter's Cathedral in the Vatican City.
