Smartphone Perspectives

 

Not so long back a blog post by photographer John Steele on the pros of using a smart phone for taking photographs turned up in my timeline.


Hwaseong Again

Instagramming My Environment

Friend and travel blogger Steve Miller a.k.a. The QiRanger, has started a new October series of videos titled Eye on Your Environment. His aim is to look a little closer at the world around him, and to talk about what makes his environment special to him. I can see a lot of worth in this kind of post (and have tried myself before), but especially because Steve doesn’t live too far away from me and in an environment which is not too dissimilar to Yeongtong.


Rando Man

The photo below does not inspire much, I imagine. It is in many respects quite depressing. A dry and slightly burnt piece of toast, a cold strip of streaky bacon, and the end of a rather watery looking class of orange juice, all wrapped around a white circular border. It is, other than the leftovers from my breakfast, a pitifully ordinary scene worth no moment of fame in any media. It is not artistic, so don’t go thinking it is. The loose crumb is only a loose crumb, the juice was as I left it, as was the toast and bacon. Just to the right was a eggy plate and a mug with a thin brown layer of leftover coffee. The photo was entirely random. So why bother?

63

Here’s  a new video I recorded and edited using my iPhone4 and the ReelDirector app.

I recorded this back in January when myself, Herself and her thirteen year old cousin all went to the 63 Building in Seoul. I’d never been and if wasn’t for the Picasso exhibition in the gallery on the top floor I don’t think I would have bothered going up. As you can see, it was absolutely freezing outside. In fact, I’m not even sure why there are people outside, let alone taking a tour boat down the frozen Han River


Review: MediTour app (Android / iDevice)

Brought to you by the Korea Tourism Organization, the MediTour app (Android and iDevices) offers ample information for those bound for a Korean medical tourism trip. With versions in English, Japanese, Chinese, and Russian, there’s no language barrier and few language issues to speak of. While good if you’re already coming to Korea or desiring more information, it’s missing a few things to give it the highest recommendation.


Review: Korea (iDevice app)

Oh, dear. The app 'Korea' has either done the country a disservice, or is the result of a prank pulled on the iDevice app store. A blogger like myself is not big enough to see this thing pulled from the app store, but see if this review leads you to desire the same thing.Choose 'Start' or 'All Items' to see basically the same thing - a picture:Slide left or right to get...? another picture:Slide



Review: Seoul Bus (iDevice app)

The Seoul subway system has been covered in the iDevice universe time and time again. The Seoul bus system, however, has only seen a couple releases - almost entirely in Korean, and . I'm quite happy to have discovered this app recently - it was only released in September - and am equally happy to pass it onto you.At its simplest, Seoul Bus gives you information on virtually every bus and bus
