The Birds

Ulsan has a strange formation of birds or rather “a murder of crows” Thousands of these birds flock to the Taehwa River area most evenings and fill the sky. It is something to see as it is almost ominous to see so many black crows

in the sky. I remember seeing a bunch when I lived in the area before but the other night was insane. The cold weather seems to bring more out and I suspect that it has something to do with a natural feeding ground and the topography of there area as to why they choose to flock to this particular area.

Ulsan’s Daeboreum Festival

Here are some shots from Ulsan’s festival held last Monday. It was a strange festival simply because it didn’t have that “huge celebration” feel to it like other years. Yes there was a stage with acrobats and the announcers mics were on full blast but I guess I wasn’t really in “the mood” or really feeling that creative. Perhaps I was a little burnt out from all the photo work that I have been doing lately but for whatever reason, to me, these photos are simply “meh”


Jeongwol Daeboreum Fire Festivals 2012

I must admit, I love these festivals. I guess that means that I am a bit of a fire-bug or something. At any rate, I love photographing them and I have tried to get out every year to catch people swirling fire and lighting a huge bonfire. The festivals are usually held during the first full moon of the lunar new year which is this Monday. These festivals are held pretty much all over Korea and in multiple places in each city. Don’t feel bad if you miss the big one on Jeju as there might just be one down the street at your local district office or community center.
