Photo of the Day

Travel Back Thursday: Pennsylvania Avenue

Travel Back Thursday: Pennsylvania Avenue cliff1066, Flickr With the government shutdown consuming much of the news, we thought we'd go back a few years for today's featured photo. Taken in the early 1970s, we see President Richard Nixon and politician Patrick Moynihan examining the construction on Pennsylvania...

Video Of The Day: South America, via Land Rover

Today's video feature follows three filmmaker friends on a four-month road trip through South America in an old Land Rover. As they document their journey between Argentina, Chile, Bolivia and Southern Brazil, they capture the extreme weather and scenic views and present...

Photo Of The Day: World War II Memorial

Photo Of The Day: World War II Memorial @LeoShane, Twitter Today's government shutdown will affect many groups of people, travel-related and otherwise. But one group chose not to be affected today. A group of World War II veterans, led by the Mississippi Gulf Coast Honor Flight, simply knocked down the barriers at...

Photo Of The Day: Balloon + Moon

Photo Of The Day: Balloon + Moon Theodore Scott, Flickr The well-known Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta is fast approaching, and one of our Gadling Flickr Pool members submitted a teaser shot of sorts, from a smaller festival in Louisiana. Have you ever encountered a balloon festival on your...

Travel Back Thursday: Thomas Jefferson's Monticello

Travel Back Thursday: Thomas Jefferson's Monticello Randy Pertiet, Flickr By the time you read this, I will have already left the office and been in a car for a few hours. My destination? Charlottesville, Virginia -- home to plenty of history, both national and local. Such history includes Monticello, Thomas Jefferson's...

Photo Of The Day: Hanalei Bay Rainbow

Photo Of The Day: Hanalei Bay Rainbow Scott Slater, Flickr Gadling Flickr Pool member Scott Slater says, "A brief rainstorm came by while I was swimming, and this rainbow appeared."

Photo Of The Day: Arch, Arch & More Arch

Photo Of The Day: Arch, Arch & More Arch Peter Rood, Flickr Today's featured photo comes from Gadling Flickr Pool member Peter Rood. The St. Louis Arch is certainly a sight to behold, and the angle of this image makes it quite impressive. Now tell us -- what monument or building has impressed you the most? ...

Photo Of The Day: Cancun Dreamin'

Photo Of The Day: Cancun Dreamin' Imgur I know, I know, the song by The Mamas & The Papas is about California, not Cancun. But with the weather turning so-slightly colder in Virginia, seeing photos plastered across Reddit of warmer, tropical climes found my fingers searching YouTube for the 1965 hit....

Photo Of The Day: Street Art in Vietnam

Photo Of The Day: Street Art in Vietnam NguyenDai, Flickr Traveling isn't always about the "touristy" parts of your destination. Sometimes, you want to hit the side streets for a taste of the more gritty, local culture. Many urban areas and downtown alleyways feature explosions of color in the name of "street art"...

Travel Back Thursday: Union Pacific Depot

Travel Back Thursday: Union Pacific Depot vxla, Flickr Okay, today's stunning, color photo isn't actually from many years ago -- it was taken in 2011. However, the subject of the photo was most notable in the early 1900s. The Union Pacific Depot opened in 1909, and provided rail services for the San Pedro, Los...

Photo Of The Day: Tower Of The Americas

Photo Of The Day: Tower Of The Americas Nan Palmero, Flickr He did it again.

Today's feature is the Tower Of The Americas in San Antonio, Texas. As the...

Photo Of The Day: "Working From Home" In Santorini

Photo Of The Day: Imgur We've posted about Greece a fair amount lately. From rare animals to nude beaches, the topics have run the gamut. And today, we feature a more simple focus. Reddit user Andromeda321 is visiting Santorini, Greece for a work-related conference all week. They report...

Photo Of The Day: Leaving Denver

Photo Of The Day: Leaving Denver Peter Rood, Flickr "Please stow your electronic devices for takeoff." Flickr user (and Gadling Flickr Pool member) Peter Rood might have bent that rule just a little bit on his recent departure from Denver, Colorado. The view from Rood's flight, as it ascended through the...

Photo Of The Day: The 'Real' Bellagio

Photo Of The Day: The 'Real' Bellagio jrodmanjr, Flickr We're not talking about the one in Las Vegas. Today's featured photo is again sourced from our Gadling Flickr Pool. Flickr Pool member jrodmanjr claims the center of Lake Como, Italy may be "the only place where the tourists outnumber the locals." We'd...

Travel Back Thursday: Washington, D.C. Metro On Opening Day

Travel Back Thursday: Washington, D.C. Metro On Opening Day WMATA I don't know about you, but Thursday afternoons are when my weekend plans start to take shape. And tomorrow, after my laptop is shut down and I exchange my button-down for a t-shirt, I'll be heading in to D.C. for the evening by way of the Metro, alongside countless...

Photo Of The Day: One World Trade Center

Photo Of The Day: San Antonio Riverwalk

Photo Of The Day: San Antonio Riverwalk Nan Palmero, Flickr Entitled, "Skip The Puddles," today's featured photo was submitted by Flickr user Nan Palmero to the Gadling Flickr Pool.

Photo Of The Day: Peanut Field

Photo Of The Day: Peanut Field taberandrew, Flickr As the week wraps up, so does summer. The weather is starting, slowly, to turn -- crisp air and falling leaves will soon be the theme of the great outdoors. So, with the sun setting on the week, the season and (in the photo) Peanut Field, what's in store...

Travel Back Thursday: Old Mile High Stadium

Travel Back Thursday: Old Mile High Stadium hokoglowko, Flickr With tonight's Ravens vs. Broncos season opener, it only seemed fitting to find a throwback photo of the Denver Broncos, years ago. This shot, taken roughly 17 years ago in 1996, shows the Broncos playing on their old "home turf" at Mile High Stadium. The...

Photo Of The Day: New York, Via Hoboken

Photo Of The Day: New York, Via Hoboken Jake Thiewes, AOL Where did you go for your Labor Day weekend travels? I ended up in New York City, after a particularly early morning jaunt to Morristown, Union City and Hoboken in New Jersey -- all in the name of an old BMW. Three of us crashed at my old college roommate's...
