Business trip

Hi everyone,

a couple of months ago I went on a business trip to South Korea for the second time. I still don't know why, but the first time I went there I didn't photograph that much and I didn't want to miss anything this time. So I packed a Canon AE-1 with a 28mm lens and my "always with me" Rolleiflex T medium format camera and loooots of portra 400 and tmax 400 film. I no longer shoot digital for important stuff, so I left my D90 at home this time.

After 10 hours total traveling time I arrived and I have to say that it was love at first sight. All the colors, the lights, the smell, just incredible!

I had really little free time with 10 to 14 hours working shifts which also included working on Saturday,   therefore almost all my photographs were taken on my way to work, after work ( this explains all the after-dark photographs :) ) or on the only Sunday I had free. Anyway I had loads of fun with my colleagues, enjoyed the lovely food and talked a lot to the incredibly kind people, although not everyone could speek english. FUN FUN FUN!!! :)






 Yummy!!


 Everyone seemed a little bit on his/her own, but I guess it's almost the same everywhere.

 I saw that her bag had the same color as the stripes on the floor and had to get closer.

 AND her toenails had the same color as well :) JACKPOT! :D



 And everyone is soooooo well dressed and so thin!! OMG!

 Here we were on the tiny version of the chinese forbidden city... I guess the Koreans just hate me right now.
 Clear sunshine = UMBRELLA TIME!!!





 The food is so tasty!

 I guess it is me checking flickr, or something :)






 Yes, and there is also tons of people on the streets of Seoul.







 And back at the airport waiting for our flight to Frankfurt.

Me encanta...


Veo que estas depurando el estilo callejero cada dia un poco mas, y estas siendo todo lo directo que hay que ser cuando uno sale a la calle.

Tambien tengo que decir que veo claramente que en Corea la gente es mas amigable que en España. Alli por lo menos la gente no te gira la cara pensando que va a salir en el HOLA.

Este año en teoria ibamos a ir a Corea del sur de vacaciones, pero lo hemos dejado porque a finales de diciembre ya hace rasca. Tengo ganas de verlo.


saludos

Lo que me gusta ver fotografía "callejera" y lo poco que me gusta hacerla. Me siento incomodo cuando fotografío a la gente, pero me alegro que tu no! y asi poder ver tus fotos.

Geniales las fotos de Corea!Enhorabuena

Geniales las fotos!!! Callejear se te da bien.
Por cierto, la primera foto, la de los perros interesándose por el que va más atrás, me parece una pasada de foto. Vaya momento guapo has pillado, igual tuviste que estar tiempo y tiempo esperando tener momento para la foto. Si es así o pura casualidad instantánea, me alegro que la compartas con nosotros. Sin desmerecer el resto, la primera es ideal.
Saludos
