Underground Selections

 

In the Myeong-dong Underground Shopping Mall, Seoul.


The Maoul Bus*

I walked up and down the street looking for the bus stop on the opposite side of the street. Where I was going was only four stops away in that direction, but I soon realised that the bus only went in the opposite direction, which left me a good fifteen stops away. I bit the […]

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?

Playing With My New Toy!

Yesterday I told you about my new toy.DSC_0005

Today with the sun shining and no pressing business, I ventured out into the wilds of Yeongtong-dong in Suwon and played with it. I won’t lie I’m still using it a little like a point-and-shoot, but I still can feel the difference. The focus is by far my favourite, as well as the texture of the photographs. I can’t really go into what makes them look or feel different, maybe it’s just that they look more real.


Travel Theme: Foliage

First off, we have now been back in the states for 3 full days. We haven’t had a moment to really process our feelings and thoughts as to what it is like to be back. We have been pretty busy seeing family, getting unpacked and getting settled. (promise to catch up shortly)

For the first time since we got back, I turned on my computer and began to go through my reader to catch up on my favorite blogs.

When I read about the travel theme this week, one photo jumped into my head. On our drive to Appenzell Switzerland we came across this window. Luckily enough it was fall which made the site even more beautiful.  I am not sure if seeing this window in a different season would have produced the same dramatic effect.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Solitary

 

We were traveling through New Mexico and arrived to Sand Dunes National Park only about 30 minutes before the park closed. It was empty. The desert stretched forever and it looked as if we were on another planet then just right off a highway in New Mexico.

Just in time for the sunset, we had a blast taking pictures and soaking up the amazing feeling of being all alone in a vast space.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Free Spirit

In 2010, we rented an RV and drove through Europe for 6 weeks. We didn’t really have too much of a plan, just enter the next city we wanted to visit into the GPS and hit the road.

When we left Cannes and were heading to Geneva, Switzerland our GPS said 8 hours.

These eight hours ended up being 3 days for us. The path brought us through the most amazing roads I have ever driven on. We were driving through the alps in an RV. The roads were narrow, there were no guide posts and the fog was unbelievable.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Urban

We were walking down the streets in Manhattan, NY. It was like one of those iconic moments where your camera takes a picture on its own. Although I have only been to NY twice, whereas my husband was brought up on the Island… I find it as fascinating as most! My mind imagines these crazy stories of the people and night life that takes place in the city.

How did this guitar get here? Was it a love serenade gone bad? Or time for an upgrade? Was it a dream made, maybe a small town girl like Coyote Ugly, finally made it in the city and traded in her old model in?


Weekly Photo Challenge – Merge

 

The first thing that came to mind when I read this weeks photo challenge was our lives. Adam and I eloped a little over 2 years ago at this spot in Koh Samui, Thailand.

We eloped at The Kala Samui. You can read more about that amazing day here.

To merge is to blur the individuality or individual identity and on that day we created a partnership built on love, unity and a commitment to happiness.

 

merge with confidence and heart,

Nicole

I Live in Yeongtong-dong

I live in Yeongtong-dong in a normal suburban existence. There is nothing that stands out from where I live and how I live from all the other millions of other semi-bored suburbanites who populate the planet. My suburb is different but there is nothing that stands out. I like it this way.

If you are reading this from another country many things will amaze you, as Korea can be a visually amazing place. In Yeongtong-dong there are a lot of visually amazing sights, but as I have lived here for some time they have lost their wonder and they are only what surround me on a daily basis. They are normal. I like it this way.
