Italian Food

The Koreans of Europe

No two cultures are the same but every one is similar, right? You could certainly say that about much of Europe, where thousands of years of breeding, trading, warring, traveling, and sharing across ever-shifting borders has caused a mixology of international characteristics of which one can be difficult to discern from the other.

In Asia, it is a little more difficult to separate the differences because the continent has suffered less fluctuation of its borders, and in terms of today’s map, colonialism for the most part decided on today’s borders. But still you can throw in the changes, regardless of actual influence, of international trade, development, colonialism, the sharing of ideas, television, and migration, and the wind at the weekend if you wish, and you will soon realise the stark similarities between peoples and cultures there.


Italy!!!!!!!!!!!!

I never blogged about my trip to Italy here, so if you are interested in some FoodPorn, you can go ahead and check my Guest Post here.


Saturday with Stella + Chris

Last Saturday, Aaron and I met up with our friends Chris and Stella at Beomeosa Temple for a couple shoot of the two of them!  The full post will probably go up on the photography blog sometime this weekend, but for now I'll leave you with this behind the scenes photo of our dressing room area! lol  Chris and Stella brought just about 1/2 of their closet, which was a photographer's dream - we had so many great choices! We all decided that a rustic feel would be perfect for the location of their shoot - kind of a Ralph Lauren look with a bit of funk, and they pulled it off perfectly!

2012 WKB Tour - Day 1


Hi everyone!, as you know last week I traveled to Korea for a tour among other WKB bloggers,  first I would like to thank KOCIS (KoreaNet) for inviting us on this wonderful trip and for recognizing our work as bloggers :)

A special thanks to Suh, Jeong Sun (Director – Global Command Contents), Han Jeon, Cathy and Grace for such a warm welcome!

Sorrento~ Korea’s cozy Italian chain

If you have lived in Korea for an amount of time, chances are you have spotted a “Sorrento” restaurant around town. 

Sorrento is a Italian restaurant chain here in Korea that is affordable, cozy to eat at, and fairly common~ maybe you could compare it to the Olive Garden or something….but cuter.


Food Shots: Bella Di Notte is Back

So the other night I got the hankering for some finely cooked Italian food. Now, this is hard to come by in Ulsan as there are many “Italian” restaurants or restaurants that serve “Italian” food but few actually make it properly. However, Bella Di Notte was not one of “those” restaurants and quickly gained a following here in Ulsan before it closed down last year. However, it is back now and closer to my place. I went there last night with my wife and got some shots to support an upcoming article for Ulsan Online.

At any rate, I love using my 50mm f/1.4 for food. Some is just something about the bokeh and the DOF that makes me love playing around with it. However, my wife hates it as she usually has to wait until I am finished shooting before she can eat. This was particularly painful last night as the food looked so amazing. Here are some of the shots that I got.
