    Adventure #13: People Photos 

    I’m always slightly parPhotobucketanoid when attempting to take candid photos of people, but I think that some of the most interesting photos or could be photos are of the people in Korea versus the sights. So, I’m slowing transitioning to taking more people photos. Here’s one I wanted to share because the man in the photo knows I’m taking his picture and smiled for me as I took it. He was sitting outside a temple during a street fest, and he has a lotus on his head. Perhaps, he’s a monk. I’m not sure.

      I really like this project. I’m going to go out and do the same thing myself today. Maybe we can encourage (cough cough – cough, cough) the rest of the blog community to try this out for themselves and post their results to the wall.

      I think his lotus hat is tops, though. Lovely idea!

      This would definitely be an adventure for me … I have a really hard time taking pictures of people I don’t know. Let me work up to this — maybe adventure #30?

    Adventure #12: Lotus Lantern Fest for Buddha’s Birthday 

    The Lotus Lantern Fest has been one of the best festivals I’ve been to here in Seoul. In commemoration of Buddha’s Birthday, the streets were decorated with lanterns. lantern making stations, and traditional Korean music. My goal in going was to make a lantern. And despite the crowds and long lines, it was accomplished. The night ended with a lit lantern parade.
