Photo Of The Day: Happy Birthday Brooklyn Bridge

photo of the day - Brooklyn Bridge
Today marks the 129th anniversary of the opening of the Brooklyn Bridge. Happy Birthday, you barely look a day over 100! This photo by Gadling's own Willy Volk was taken from the NYC Water Taxi. He used a fake tilt-shift effect to get the unique perspective and slightly blurred edges, but it reminds me of the view you might see on a rainy day riding the subway over the neighboring Manhattan Bridge. It's a view that never fails to inspire visitors and New Yorkers – one that's unmistakably New York. Celebrate the anniversary with a walk across its span to Brooklyn and back; it's one of New York's last great free thrills.

Share your best travel photos with us in the Gadling Flickr pool. If we find them inspiring (and can download them), we'd love to include one as a future Photo of the Day.
