Wanted to take photos from the observation deck of Post Tower… but it’s apparently closed on weekends.

    Night pictures of the third worst city to live in, in the entire planet.

    That first shot is ace, it should be used in a tourist brochure. Did you use a slow shutter speed to get the exposure so sharp?

    I shot a 10 second exposure with ISO as low as it can go.

    . . . with a tripod, right?

    I thought it was something like that from the stretched-out car lights. I’ve always been reluctant to take photos at night but think I’ll try your approach.

    hey, that’s the Shinsegye department store ~

    Shinsegye has also got the guinness record-breaking one in Busan!

    BTW, looking at “night photos” leads me to think…”well, taking photography class would be an interesting idea”. It’s tempting ~

    Does that old bank still say “First Bank of Korea, Muslim” on a sign out front?

    Damn straight. Funny thing is, one guy I know takes a lot of long exposure shots without one. How the hell he does it, I haven’t a clue.

    Actually, if you’ve got a tripod, Mike, and set your ISO low, taking photos at night can be quite fun.

    Yeah. I’m kind of interested in taking a course, too.

    Yeah, Robert, my mom, in the states, gave these pictures a big thumbs up. All of us like your night shots.
