here is a photo of sinsa, a neighborhood pretty close to mine, by an artist named juliane eirich, who went to hongik university in seoul and took some really really beautiful photos in the time she spent in korea.
i really like them and now i am officially inspired to do more interesting things with my camera.
….as with all things that i am vaguely planning to do, after i take the gre.
anyway, you should go to her website and look at her photos, especially the ones in the series “german village,” which is a real german-style village in southern south korea populated by aging german men and their korean wives.
i am actually seriously tempted to visit because it is so weird, but i think it would be creepy to just show up and gawk at the germans gardening or whatever they are doing down there. it seems like they would probably be lonely, though.
