There might be no snow in Sochi (the real kind, anyway), but we got plenty in PyeongChang.
And not a topless photo of Vlad Putin in sight!
I’ve got photos of:
Enjoy. Or not.
Lots of photos of Bukchon Hanok Village at Ye Olde Photoblog.
This also gives me a chance to play with WordPress’s new theme.
Meanwhile, it is fig season here in Korea so eat a big one.
After months of waiting, these mums finally bloom. If anyone has some nice shots of mums, post a link.
Note: This photo was so cute I had to post it – Jung Ha-yoon, 2, is pictured in 옹기, while playing with other children during the Royal and Aristocrat’s Traditional Food Festival held at Unhyeon Palace (운현궁), Seoul October 1, 2013.
A 호랑이나비 from around the 성산산성 (Seongsan Mountain Fortress) today.
ORIGINAL POST: Sorry for the lack of activity here over the last week.
With the Chuseok holiday coming, I’ve been a bit busy. But I guess you already knew that.
Anyway, there’s a lot of news to cover, and I hope to begin getting to it from this evening.
In the meantime, I’ve posted plenty of photos over at my photo blog. Not all of them completely suck. Or maybe they do.
Have a good weekend, folks.
If you are completely bored, you can take a look at some shots I took at Unhyeongung last night.
UPDATE: Lovely sunrise this morning.
To bring a bit of cheer to this dreary, rainy day, I post a happy little smartphone pic of Andong’s Dosan Seowon, taken last Sunday. See a larger version here.
The New York Times Magazine has a wonderful little article on a photo exhibition, in Paris, at the Orangerie garden at Versailles, for the Korean photographer Ahae. Ahae’s greatest asset in taking pictures is his hunter’s patience in waiting for images to show themselves. The French link for this show is also here.
