I had a bit of time Sunday evening, so I went down to Dongdaemun to shoot the landmark (and newly restored) Heunginjimun Gate, Seoul’s old eastern entrance.
I’d originally wanted to photograph it from the other side, but the buildings I wanted to climb were locked. Alas.
I also left my hat on the roof when I left.
Which I knew what to do about the floodlights. They’re really distracting.
So last night, I try again for the other side of Heunginjimun Gate. This time, however, I used an old Nikon D2Xs we had laying around the office.
Frankly, I much prefer my Nikon D300, but perhaps that’s largely a function of me knowing what most the buttons do.
One of the benefits of this location, though, was that at least the sunsets over the city are nice…
and you get a rather nice view over Jongno, with Mt. Namsan looming in the distance.
