It was my birthday yesterday. I tend to forget. They kind of just happen. I’d asked people on my Instagram in the morning what I should have for dinner. It seemed a fine enough idea. The choices were raw beef or sushi. I’d put on shorts and paint stained t-shirt to go out. Since renovating […]

There is this wall. It isn’t a particularly interesting wall. In fact, it is a very normal one. That being said, I think it is my favourite wall. It is kind of beige or off-white. The wallpaper is fairly typical for Korea. I can’t remember the first photo I took against it. I think it […]
Into the Summer, Leica, and an Upcoming Workshop
The summer is almost here. It’s already hot. It’s even getting humid. I don’t love summers in Korea, never have. Lots of things going on this summer though. So far, I’ve spent some time traveling nearby cities. Places I hadn’t yet gone. It is strange to me how even within an hour from where I […]
Cherry Blossoms and a Girl
I noticed her. The park was full of tourists. The cherry blossom season in Gyeongju is a big event in Korea. The small lake had a winding path circling it. Strangely, no one walked up to the lake. She did, though. Wearing a hanbok (traditional Korean dress) like out of a dynasty far removed she […]
The Ricoh GR II and Why I Always End Up With a Ricoh
So, I just wrote about the Fujifilm X-Pro 2. It is a nice enough camera. I used it over the past six months. The fact of the matter is though, I never felt much of a connection to that camera. It worked just fine, but it never made me want to take photos. It was […]
2016, Go Stuff Yourself.
2016 was a weird year for me. Lots of things changed. Both for better and worse. Photographically, I think I grew a lot this year. I didn’t post much however, and have become quite lazy about it. Hence the guest posts lately. I’m glad Bin has being doing that. As per usual, I changed cameras […]
We were on the metro and she blew me a kiss. Like a boyfriend does, I took a picture. “Why’d you take a picture?” “I dunno, it felt right..” “Okay…” It sometimes just feels right. To take a photo. Maybe a fear that I won’t always be able to remember walks in the rain. Maybe […]
Ramen, Mobiles, Coffee and Drink.
I’ve been busy. Busy with what? I am not even sure I know. Cooking ramen? I’m a big fan. This one is of the black noodle variety.
A couple of weeks ago, my friend Eric came to town to visit and teach a mini workshop with me here in Seoul. He stayed for a couple of days, and somewhere during the couple of days I really had to have a think about photography.
My buddy Eric once did a a project on Korea called “The Presentation of Self.” While I’m not sure he really dug that project as much as his other work, the idea was a good one. Korea might be one of the most superficial countries in the world with self presentation being of utmost importance. […]
