Singapore Photos Artfully Depict Passage Of Time

Singapore Photos Artfully Depict Passage Of Time Sep 9th, 2013 at 3:30PM: When Singapore-based photographer Fong Qi Wei decided to photograph cities around the world, his approach to the project was different than that of most photographers in that his primary focus was to capture the passage of time. To do so, Qi Wei took several photos of the same scene over a span of a few hours and then developed a composite image of the scene. With an artful eye, Qi Wei managed...

11 of the Most Stereotypical Aug 15th, 2013 at 5:00PM: Seo2 | Por Puro Amor Al Rap, Flickr Happy Relaxation Day! In honor of the holiday, and because we're feeling antsy in our cubicles, we've rounded up some of the most stereotypical vacation "relaxation" photos out there.

Hot Travel Trend: K-Pop Style Wedding Photography in South Korea Aug 12th, 2013 at 3:30PM: one-11, Flickr We've all heard of destination weddings, but would you travel to another country just to have your wedding photos taken?

Some Chinese feel that South Korea is more sophisticated when it comes to things like fashion, makeup and...

Gadling Gear Review: Two Camera Bags From Lowepro

Gadling Gear Review: Two Camera Bags From Lowepro Jul 22nd, 2013 at 9:00AM: Lowepro When you invest a considerable amount of money into a good camera and a set of lenses for travel, it is important to also spend a little extra cash to get a quality camera bag as well. A good bag is not only comfortable to wear but also provides plenty of protection from accidental damage while also managing to keep all of your gear well organized and easy to access. That can play a big...

Gadling Gear Review: Samsung WB250F Smart Camera

Gadling Gear Review: Samsung WB250F Smart Camera Jul 18th, 2013 at 11:30AM: Samsung Over the past couple of years, smartphones have managed to supplant dedicated cameras for many aspiring photographers thanks to their ability to take good, clean images and quickly share them across a variety of social media outlets. While they don't come equipped with true zoom lenses or overly large sensors, in many cases they capture images that are good enough to meet most people's...

Photo Of The Day: The Hills In Arizona

Photo Of The Day: The Hills In Arizona Jul 12th, 2013 at 6:00PM: mw3106, Flickr Just outside of Prescott, Arizona is Williamson Valley, a quite desolate area where it's quite easy to find yourself come across a herd of buffalo, within the limits of their farm of course. This hillside sunrise, seen through immaculately kept trees, is in great company amongst Arizona's other phenomenal natural wonders. Michael Wilson, a Prescott resident, took this stunning...

5 Ways To Preserve Your Travel Memories (That Don't Involve Photos)

5 Ways To Preserve Your Travel Memories (That Don't Involve Photos) Jul 5th, 2013 at 10:00AM: LEOL30, Flickr If you're an avid traveler, chances are you've experienced some type of fantastical sight, to which no photograph can ever do justice. Talent and camera quality have no bearing whatsoever on the ability to capture this moment, and so you resign yourself to committing it to memory. Although I love looking at travel photos, I'm not much of a photographer. But I'm also well-traveled...

Photo Of The Day: Anichkov Bridge, St. Petersburg

Photo Of The Day: Anichkov Bridge, St. Petersburg Jul 2nd, 2013 at 6:00PM: jrodmanjr, Flickr The Anichkov Bridge in Saint Petersburg, Russia is an architectural highlight of the city, and draws visitors to drink in the surrounding views and marvel at its ornate ironwork. However, it's the pair horse tamer statues placed on either end that really leaves an impression. The sculptures are so detailed and lifelike that they appear to be bronze casts. Flickr user jrodmanjr...

Photo Of The Day: Remote Homes In Greenland

Photo Of The Day: Remote Homes In Greenland Jun 28th, 2013 at 6:00PM: Mads & Trine, Flickr Greenland is the 12th largest country in the world, yet its entire population would just barely be able to fill Michigan Stadium to half of its capacity. Virtually all pictures taken on the enormous island encapsulate this sparsely populated, remote nature, such as this one taken by Mads & Trine on Flickr. Greenland is a place with towns so small they have almost no...

The chairs look comfy, the light is...

Photo Of The Day: River Trekking In Hong Kong

Photo Of The Day: River Trekking In Hong Kong Jun 21st, 2013 at 5:00PM: 0759, Flickr Hong Kong is not a place that many associate with mountains and nature, but past one of the best skylines in the world and the tangle of tramways are beaches and outstanding hiking trails. In the far east side of Hong Kong's relatively rural Sai Kung District is the Sheng Luk Hillstream. In Flickr user Bo Li's photo, it seems as though we are far from actually being in one of the...

Venice: Grand Vistas And Little Details

Venice: Grand Vistas And Little Details Jun 21st, 2013 at 12:00PM: Sean McLachlan On my first day in Venice I walked the streets without a camera in order to savor the beauties of this unparalleled city. I was leaving the next afternoon so that morning I got up at dawn in order to catch Venice at its abandoned best. It's a different city, more peaceful. You can linger on a bridge or take a shot from the middle of a street without getting trampled. You can...

Photo Of The Day: A Peek Of San Francisco

Photo Of The Day: A Peek Of San Francisco Jun 20th, 2013 at 6:00PM: Flickr, Nan Palmero One of the great pleasures of exploring a hilly city is a constantly changing, often surprising, landscape. One minute you are trudging along a crowded sidewalk, huffing and puffing up a big hill, and suddenly you glimpse it between buildings: the Bosphorus. The Acropolis. The Prague Castle. Today's Photo of the Day from San Francisco reminded me of the moment of magic. From...

Photo Of The Day: Djemaa El Fna Market, Marrakesh Jun 18th, 2013 at 5:00PM: Sylvia Wrigley, Flickr During the day, Marrakesh's famous Djemaa El Fna square is filled with monkey trainers, snake charmers and stands selling the most delicious orange juice you've ever tried.

Strolling Through Venice Without A Camera

Strolling Through Venice Without A Camera Jun 16th, 2013 at 12:00PM: Wikimedia Commons I've wanted to visit Venice all my life. Who wouldn't? It has the reputation of being the most beautiful city in the world, and with my love of architecture my first glimpse of it was going to be a lifelong memory. After a rainy week in Slovenia, I arrived in Venice on a gloriously cloudless afternoon. I had less than 24 hours in the city before family obligations would take...
