Holiday Weekend Myeongdong

Seoul's first GAP cut the grand ribbon Aug. 24th. A T-Shirt costs about 35$. The store is only 2 floors high, catering mostly to men, but that brand name fix is all yours. Plus you'll be the envy of the guy in the middle with his arms crossed.

This stylin' Korean dude could pass as a French man from behind. Don't you dig his earthy look?

It feels like there is a Starbucks on every corner in Myeongdong. My short coffee of the day (the cheapest thing on the menu) was approx. 3 USD. I paid for the view though, got to people watch from the 2nd story window.

Lotte Department store. (Chanel is out of my price range but my camera wanted to roam!) "Department stores" are the shopping malls of Korea. Most of them are high-end so youth usually prefer to shop at boutiques and markets.

Seoul is calling my name...i always enjoy the street scenes and building shots...i like architecture. you have good composition skills in photography.

and perhaps, i'm digging the shot of the two girls walking in skirts, black socks and pumps...mhmm. more pics like that in the future, luna, will be greatly appreciated by your guy readership.

Don't be creepy, Peter

Not at all, Josh, just a young American.

I think there are a lot of things in Korea now that weren't there when I was there ten years ago. Like I don't remember seeing any Starbucks. (But then, I don't drink coffee, so maybe they were there and I just didn't notice!)

I notice you have some blur there with pictures that have low light or movement in them. You may want to increase your ISO setting. I think the Nikon D40x goes as high as 1600, which is fine since none of your pics on your blog are so big that the grain will be a distraction.

Oh no!

Don't be a young American, Peter.

j/k :)

Yes, Korea has had a facelift. Even my Korean friends who were away in Canada for 1 yr say they noticed a significant change. It's developing so quickly , construction everywhere - buildings popping up.

peter and josh- kiss and make up.
