Nightlife - Busan Haeundae Style

Nightlife - Busan Haeundae Style

Fancy a meal outdoors, soak up the ambiance of many others, a beer, chicken or fish and chips.

Well Haeundae is the place to go, with a backdrop of modern skyscrapers and the Yacht club, you will never be alone!

The buzz of the chit-chat and a box of good ole English style Fish n Chips washed down with a beverage of your choice.

Anapje at its best

Anapje pond near Gyeonju is spectacular at night. The lights the reflection and a calm stroll around the pond makes this a must when you are in the area.

Morning Calm and Night Fantastic

Morning Calm and Night Fantastic

Morning calm is a great experience anytime of year, but in January when the lights are on it is out of this world.

More than 1 million lights illuminate the whole garden, it seems an equal number of people too so do go early.

Over-the-Top

Over-the-Top

This is an image I made during a week-long stay in Seoul back in October. This particular shot focuses on wealthy Korea. It is entitled "Over-the-top" as I find this is a phrase that can often be applied to Korean opulence, but also because I had to climb and lean over-the-top o the glass safety barrier at Seoul N Tower to make the shot.

The Fastest of Food

The Fastest of Food

A South Korean delivery driver tears through an intersection, Tongyeong, South Gyeongsang Province.

These fast-food delivery bikes are always zipping around at breakneck speed, blazing through red lights, etc. I knew to capture their essence, I'd need to show a sense of that motion in my imagery. I thought panning would be the best way to achieve that.

Oedong, Gimhae, 2 a.m.

I like going out alone at night. It’s quiet. And, there’s a much better chance of this happening than going out in the early morning. Because as much as I like that, too, I’m just not a morning person. I’ve somehow always found time for the night.

Even Korea, a dense slab of concrete and people, has its quiet moments. I imagine out in the country, a nighttime stroll on a pitch-black, streetlight-less road could be downright scary. In a good way. In that “we always think we know, even if deep down we don’t know, and that scares us, so we pretend we do know when really, we don’t. But right now, I really don’t know” sort of way.


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.


Where the Engineer People Live

Seaside village in Ulsan, South Korea

Working primarily as an English teacher and spending most of the last 10 years living in a one-room bachelor pad is all part of my life here in Korea. However, it is easy to think that that is how all of the other expats live in this country. The shock is when you live in a place like Ulsan where not everyone you know is a teacher and not everyone lives in a tiny one-room bachelor pad.
