The first time



Today was the first day that we've done actual sight seeing...which I'm grateful for. I'd much rather just hangout with people doing what they actually do rather than going to places that have a very distant relationship to the people around me.

This palace and the grounds were really vast and at the same time very, very simple and straight forward. The detail and artwork done on each and every peience is just gorgeous. A lot of the paint was made by hand from flowers, grasses, and plants. Every time they restore the palace they try to use the same type of process and make the same kind of paint.

And...just thought I'd show you some of what I ate today...so you know I am actually getting real food. :)

























And can you believe how late these people work!?! It was after 10pm when we passed these places.



This is a street vendor. When it gets cold they put up plastic. The vendors have chairs inside so that people can come in a sit down and have a bite to eat.

Davina...

I'm loving your photo essay! The flowers at the market are to die for in the texture and softness, and I can almost smell them through your lens.

Lovely stuff. Please keep sharing!

My love,

You are just flat out amazing. Thank you for all you do for me and the kids--we are very blessed to have you as our Mom/Wife/Friend/Beautiful Woman, etc. Can't wait to see you tomorrow.

Your Man

Your photographs are amazing. I've lived in Korea for over five years now and you managed to capture so many of the images that I've stopped noticing years ago. You make me want to take that EOS 5 out of the closet and start snapping away again.
(I also enjoy working with your sister!)
