PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Last week I decided join the 'Seoul Metro Project' with the 'Seoul Photo Club' on Flickr (sorry Francis).

The aim of the project is to take a photograph of all the stops on the Seoul/Gyeonggi Subway map. The idea is to create a series of photographs that represent the Line that each photographer has chosen. There were no 'rules' so to speak and creativity was keenly stressed (to avoid repetition).

Unfortunately I joined the project late and have had only limited time to finish the thing (by next week). I had to do Incheon Line 1, 28 stops in total, but I'm not going to bore you with all of them!

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
No story here. Just a collection of images from around Ansan, the town where I'm currently 'stationed' at during my great Korean tour of public schools...

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Spent a relaxing 10 days in Laos recently. I traveled with friends and didn't really have many opportunities to get off by myself. I did have a couple of days to myself at the end of the trip and wandered around Chinatown (and other places) during Chinese New Year.

I traded in my Sammy EVIL and picked up the Nikon D7000 before I left and loaded my trusty old 35mm f2 lens (50mm equivalent). I think I might invest in a 24mm lens though as I'm always wanting something just a little bit wider.

I've tried some 'different' black and white conversions with this project, and explored different forms of cropping.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Just a small collection of images looking at reflections, silhouettes, but generally people (or animals) looking in. Might go for a dark gothic-like style to keep it in line with the reference to the movie.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Project about trees in the city, trees in the urban landscape.
The trees are jsut about to blossom, but I'll start with some naked trees first as I say goodbye to a harsh winter, and hello to a mild spring.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
A collection from several abandoned buildings and also used buildings, but in a serious state of dis-repair. Some of these will be HDR (shock horror!). I'm trying something different here and it will be interesting what I come up with. Enjoy!

Some of the locations would make a good project by themselves, but most are scattered around the country and I will be revisiting them over the next 12 months, so I'll just put them together for the time being. I have other shots taken before, but I only want to include new ones.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

This project is about Korean people, hopefully giving a broad look at their irks, quirks, and other personality traits. Yes, I know, I should try and narrow my choice of subjects down, but I've tried the project route and can't seem to find many 'interesting' stories to follow. The times I have found something, I often lack the enthusiasm and patience to carry on with it.

So, this project will be slow, but hopefully I should be able to shrug of my current writers block (or whatever the photography equivalent phrase is) and get back into the game.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
I've decided to do another project based on an earlier one, Busan Sewer. The last one was a collection of shots that I've taken over the years aned some were very experimental. This time round, I've refined my approach and want something a bit more continuous and cohesive. Also I thiunk its time toexplore black and white a bit more.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
I was going to do a few different projects based on my recent trip to Vietnam, but have decided to condense it into one larger project through a few uploads via the digipack. Why? Well its time for me to move and start doing other stuff. I've been 'inspired' by recent comments to do other stuff, rather than sit at mny computer and spend the next few months uploading my Vietnam stuff.

I traveled around quite a bit of vietnam mostly due to the fact that    I was with friends, and I wondered why I'd never visited before. What a place!

So here are my photos. Part project, part travelogue I guess. I seem to remember Francis saying something about SE Asia is a reat place to photoraph in black and white in the daytime and after a bit of PP, I guess he's right. Not that I could do any night time shooting, though, armed with only the Canon G10!

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
I found my self with a few days in Phnom Penh after an exhausting spot of traveling in Vietnam. I wanted to do somethin a little different to what I took in Vietnam (those will come later), and I guess, 'emulate' some work that I've seen on this site. So I just went walking and clicked away at anything that caught my eye. I must admit not liking much at the time, but after a bit of PP, I'm satisfied by my catch.

Not much of a story to link to my photos. More of a collection of the odd atmsophere that I pick up from this bustling (and sometimes exciting) city.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
It's cold these days in Busan, a real cold front has attacked us, but I've recently felt inspired to take my photos. This project is just about my wanderings over the next couple of weeks as I freeze my ass off.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

These are from a recent trip to Taiwan. I was most struck by the weather (regular rain at approximately 3pm everyday), the subway (lots of shooting opportunities), and scooters (hundreds of them!). Sure, I took other shots of other things, and places other than Taipei, but this set of black and white images are of my favorites.

Schools finished (for me), I have some time on my hands, stress levels are down, I like the beach and will 'document' my time spent on the beach and surrounding areas.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

One of the things that I really enjoy watching in Korea is bullfighting. It's of a completely different type to what goes on in Spain and at the end of the fight the bull doesn't die. It might be a bit battered and bruised and the owner embarrassed (and angered at the loss) but it doesn't suffer too much. Not only do I enjoy the pre-match events and the actual fight (and the bulls) but it also gives me a great chance for people watching. The country folk come out in their masses, but sometimes city people will come bringing their strange fashions and habits.

I'd like to dedicate this project to the bulls themselves in all their glory and colour.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
I remember a couple of years ago when a friend stated that there was no 'good' architecture to be seen in Busan. I guess that's a bit of an understatement. I've been walking the streets of Busan for a few years now and there is no defining architecture, nothing that might fit in any period or style of achitecture, nothin that might grace the pages of say, Architecure Monthly.

'Function over Form'

No where does that seem evident than in Busan, South Korea (in my opinion). Apart from the modern appartment complexes (tall slabs of dull coloured concrete) everything else just rises then falls and is replaced by some other odd looking structure. I've taken it upon myself to find some beauty amongst this ugliness, be it a close-up of a building, a view from up high or some strange colours resulting from a long exposure. I'm gonna seek it out, until I've found a series of 'beautiful' architecture.
