Walking along the Taehwa River Park the other morning I found myself enchanted by the bamboo forest that runs along side the river. Maybe it was the soft music or the first warm and bright day in Ulsan in a long time. At any rate I came out of this walk more relaxed and with a few nice shots as well.

The Shot: This was a shot that I could just feel in my bones, even before the sky flared up. I just knew that it was going to be a great night for photography. Trouble was finding the right place to get a good shot from. The key to this shot is the reflection. Thus, I centred the horizon in the middle of the frame which can be a compositional “no-no” but I feel that anytime you shoot reflections like this it balances the fram a lot more.


Getting the Shot 15: On the Roof

Back in the old days you could pretty much stroll into any new apartment and not encounter any sort of static. You may have gotten a few stares but that was mostly people thinking “I don’t remember any waygooks living here?” However, these days the ultra modern apartments now have modern coded-entry systems and guards that actually do more than sleep and watch TV.


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.
