Monochrome Seoul

 

I don’t get into Seoul as much as I’d like to. Although recently I’ve been fortunate enough to hit up the tourist trails around Myeong-dong. I miss the big city. The feeling you get as you’re lost in a tidal wave of more people. I miss the main streets, and the side streets. I miss looking up from the cavern floor of a canyon of highrise. I miss getting lost in a world of alleys and emerging and finding my way around because it’s just Seoul.


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.


Walking Home at Night in Yeongtong-dong

Last night was the first real dark night I’ve walked home from this year. I left work around 6pm and by the time I had crossed the street and said goodbye to a coworker it was as dark as December. I won’t prey on your sensibilities with a slew of cliches about walking home alone in a chilly night in October. We’ve all been there. It’s a universal feeling.


Days of Chuseok

The Chuseok holiday is ending slowly here. All that is left is the rest of the weekend, but that’s not really Chuseok. Most businesses will open up tomorrow in the hope of catching those desperate to restock their fridge and fill their belly with something other than Chuseok food.

Of course we suffer in Korea this year because Chuseok, a three day holiday, has fallen on a Thursday, so the three days around it also meld into Saturday and Sunday making it a nice rounded five day break. There will be a very slow and more unenthusiastic than usual start to work all around the country this Monday.


Upgrade Time!

I got a new toy.

For those of you who follow this blog regularly you’ll know I like to take pictures. For a while I’ve been using a Sony DSC model, intially the H5 which I bought in 2006 while on holiday in Thailand (I lost my point and shoot at a waterfall in Laos), and then after I thought I lost that I was loaned indefinitely my brother-in-law’s H9, which is a lovely camera.

I’ve been getting more and more obsessed with taking pictures, mainly thanks to my phone which allows for frequent and simple snapping, and of course tied in with this is Instagram, which I probably overdo a little.


Photography classes/clubs/ogranizations?

Does anyone know of any photography classes that take place in Pusan?  Or, any clubs, organizations, etc that focus on photography.  Trying to get more into photography, but besides snapping basic photos I don't know what else to do.   Thanks.
