I am back in South Korea and I attended the Lotus Lantern Festival on Saturday evening.  It was a really nice day so there were lots of people out to enjoy the evening and the parade.

I became most interested in the many wonderful faces I saw there and spent most of my time looking around for interesting faces.

 National Hangeul Museum

The National Hangeul Museum is located next to the National Museum of Korea so makes for an easy addition to a visit while in Seoul.

You will find art exhibits with Hangeul as a theme as well as lots of interesting history.  Hangeul is a very pleasing set of characters to view and it is fun to visit this homage to the Korean alphabet!

June 25, 1950 - 64th Anniversay of the Beginning of the Korean War

I returned recently from a visit to South Korea so the events that shaped their history is still much on my mind.  I wanted to post an image in remembrance of the beginning of the Korean war and wanted to avoid using a standard shot of the Korean War Memorial or something similar.

I chose to focus on a detail of one of the sets of statuary that is located on the grounds of the Korean War Memorial.  I felt this helped to remind us of the victims of war and my creative interpretation is one that evokes chaos, fear  and confusion felt by the children represented in this image.
