Itaewon + wandering = Itaewandering

Printer-friendly version
One recent weekday afternoon I had the chance to meander through some sections of Itaewon that I hadn't seen before. If you've lived in Seoul or visited Seoul, you know Itaewon as the foreigner-friendly district with plenty of international restaurants and dance clubs. Getting off that main street (and a couple of side streets) is a chance to slow things down and find your own way in this interesting area. There's no theme, reason, or rhyme here - I just hope you enjoy the photos.



Flying bird, set free!



Clay bowls, gone black-and-white.



The condition of the sign, combined with the message, is priceless.



The camera, in case you were wondering is a Nikon D70 with a 35mm f/1.8 lens attached. With the aperture wide open, your depth-of-field is fabulously small. No worries about low light here, but late at night, no flash is needed in 98% of shots.



Older but colorful.



No idea why Santa looks to be tied up.



Why do government buildings always get the coolest designs?



Chocolate in dozens of languages.
