Gyeongbokgung Palace, one of Seoul’s most brilliant tourist destinations, took on a unique personality in the freezing rain yesterday as I wandered through the beautiful historic temples and houses on its grounds. After visiting its sister Palace (Changdeokgung) a few days earlier, I was hooked. These ornate, awe-inspiring palaces hold surprises at every turn. Suffering from a minor case of “photographer’s block”, I was beginning to get a bit frustrated. For those of you who don’t know what that is, I was having some difficulty coming up with unique compositions and compelling photos, something different from the thousands of tourist photos snapped everyday. As I was contemplating how to capture this fantastic piece of architecture, this lady with a green umbrella strolled by, providing an opportunity for something magical (or at least I think so!). What do you think?? You can see a few of the other shots I posted on my Facebook Page here. I invite you to subscribe to my updates there since most of the photos I take do not make it on to the blog. I am so excited to travel around this beautiful continent and share its wonderful treasure with all of you. Feel free to send this to a friend if you think they might enjoy these little adventures as well! Stay tuned for a overhaul on how the Blog looks!
Thanks for visiting.
