I started photography as a hobby about 2 years ago but I still consider myself as a beginner. I did not really take it seriously, to be honest with you. It was just for fun, and since I own a camera, I became a designated photographer for the Filipino Community in Siheung, the community I am a part of here in South Korea. With that said, these photos are what I consider my best, and not somebody else’s. (Kalma lang mga besh, ok)
Seoul and South Korea are perfect for taking photos. It is the perfect amalgamation of traditional and modern. Anywhere you look, you can be inspired to take a photo.
Today, I want to share with you some of those photos I’ve taken in my first 1000 Days in Seoul, South Korea. Feel free to comment below if you like the photos.
I think this was one of the first photos I took the first time I saw snow in South Korea. I came from the Philippines where it doesn’t snow so it was a bit of a shock for me and at the same time I was amazed. I love taking photos during winter because everything is white and covered in snow. I just love the details in this photo, the bike and all.
I don’t think I have a particular style in photography, I think I’ve yet to develop that. But one thing I like is capturing the details.
If you have been reading my post, somehow you will notice that I try to inject humor in them especially in my captions. I’m not a funny person but I think I have a twisted sense of humor. In this photo, I saw a couple basking in the great view of the sea and I thought, well, I’ll take a photo of them since it reminded me of a scene in Goblin. Only after sorting through my photos that I noticed that the girl was doing something.
This photo was taken in Incheon, South Korea in Technopark subway station. I like this photo because it reminded me of those photos of an upcoming building or establishment and they do a mock-up. Well, only this is real. This is a shopping complex, and I went there together with a special friend to catch the Pokemon Festival.
One of the notable landmarks of Seoul is the Gyeungbukgung Palace. This is the main palace, in which there are 4 others more in Seoul. This area is very popular among tourists and it is a huge complex. This palace is also near to the Blue House, the President of South Korea’s official residence.
This was taken at the Seoul Lantern Festival 2016. Every year, the city of Seoul fills the Chenggyecheon stream with colorful lanterns. It is so relaxing to walk along the 1km stream that you wouldn’t even notice the distance you covered. This year’s festival is upcoming so I’m excited about that. 🙂
This photo was taken in Everland while we were on a Safari cruise bus. Outside there are lions and tigers, bears, etc. The only thing separating us and them is a thick piece of glass.
I wish I could get back my innocence, just like this child. But I can’t. I’m so damaged, I think. Lol!
So there you have it, some of my best photos and I will post another set on my next post. Please comment down below what you think of them and if you have a place in Seoul or South Korea you would like to see photos of, google them. Charot! Comment down below and I will try my best to include them in the future.
