There’s no catch. That’s your lot!
A lot of the images I am posting from Jeju are quite out of my comfort zone. It was a family holiday so I was photographing on the hoof, so to speak. No real plan other than a few sites I wanted to explore. Even the rocks are pulling me between colour, black and white and shades in between.
When it comes to more obscure ideas it may be a lost cause. Other people do ‘grasses’ and they look cool. Mine look a bit yukky. Here the idea was to have the orange in the road sign echoed by the autumnal foliage behind. And why not try to make a flame out of an aquatic plant?So if all else fails I can always resort to toilet humour. It took me a while to understand what this sign was about.And for getting this far, have a bird as a consolation prize!
Looking back through the files there are very few keepers but there are some interesting experimental shots. So for those of you who were waiting all agog for a traditional travelogue I am afraid it is not to be.
However I can offer you a couple more shots from the wet market before we go off piste. In the first shot the lady is trying to explain the 58 different varieties of kimchi she sells. I fell asleep on number 3.
In this second shot I thought the lady was texting her chums about all the soju left for sale but apparently it is soy sauce and vinegar. Such a let down. Hic! I also narrowly avoided a contretemps with this old lady who I think was about to head butt me until I neatly side-stepped her.“So where is the experimentation?” you cry. Well here is my cup running over for starters… Execution by Mr. Ha, vision by Mrs. HaAnd how about a couple of wall shots?That’s enough walls….. (ed.) I don’t really know where or even if we go with Jeju Three. One thing is sure, to make kimchi you have to know your onions.
