PHOTO DESCRIPTION

What any foreigner would first see about Seoul, highways, roadways, industrial structures and metallic bridges.

I instantly remembered my highschool geo-economics classes. South Korea economic growth was relying upon heavy industries, steel, boat building : all these sorts of delicate, mildly polluting manufacturing process... Looked also like Seoul urban community was not saving costs on good solid steel either.

Hello Luko,
Ca fait tres ... comment t'expliquer, tu sais quand un gars se reveille dans un autre endroit apres s'etre fait assomer, avec la lumiere tres dure qui l'eblouit ... il me semble qu'ici le gars a ete kidnappé ... enfin c'est le scenario que je m'invente ...
on ne peut pas mieux faire pour un "opening"
A+

The FLARE, man, the flare makes this picture, without a doubt. And that greenish look reminds me of the opening sequence from "Midnight Cowboy", ya know...? We hear Harry Nilson singing "Everybody's talkin at me, I can't hear a word they're sayin..." as John Voigt sits at the back of that Greyhound bus heading for the Big Apple and no end of pain. Well hat kind of thing.
I like what you're doing - this is a setup shot, setting up the scene. Okay... let's roll. And that flare...is really cool.
