It had been too chilly to mosey around without a destination. So, with the beautiful weather, we decided to check out the river walk and anything else that caught our fancy.
I’ll do almost anything for a good picture!
I’m a huge fan of graffiti and murals.
I think Alexis wanted to prove that I’m getting old, and need a nose trimmer.
In the middle of a commercial and residential area we came across a one hundred year old Buddhist temple.
The swastika is an ancient symbol found worldwide. It’s been used by (but not limited to) Egyptians, Romans, Greeks, Native Americans, Hindus, and Buddhists. The swastika's name comes from the Sanskrit word svasti, meaning good fortune, luck, and well being. We, in the west, see it differently, after it was adopted by the Nazi party in 1935.
How cool is this storefront?
We made it down to the river walk. What a beautiful day!
I guess this fella was waitin’ on lunch.
“What are we lookin’ at, you fowl creatures?”
This is great... Hydroelectricity powers the lights in this stepping stone bridge.
I think I got a good picture.
Alexis and her friend think so, too.
Sometimes I like taking pictures of other people taking pictures.
Back to the street.
One of my favorite things to photograph is a unique manhole cover.
Christianity and Buddhism are the two big religions here in South Korea.
This monument was created to honor the students that started the Gwangju Student Independence Movement in 1929. Students in Gwangju went on strike and marched through the city demanding national independence.
Hanbok – Ancestral Korean clothes, worn as semi-formal or formal wear during traditional festivals and celebrations.
I’m a big fan of the street food here in Korea, especially when it’s a Belgian waffle with Nutella, chocolate, or ice cream sandwiched inside!
Selfies are the thing here. Bong means stick, so this is a telescoping “smart stick”, made for smart phones, to aid in taking the perfect selfie.
… We bought one!
