These shots were taken around Jonggak Station using a Lens Baby muse lens. They are meant to have the feeling of Jonggak area after drinking too much.
During the day these alleys are full shops selling hardware and electrical supplies. During the evening they are a maze of dark and empty corridors.
Jonggak Station at night like a lot of other spots in the city is packed with bars and restaurants. The location is great for getting a drink after a day of site seeing or shopping being in the middle of Dongdaemun, Insadong, Myeong-dong, Gwanghwamun, and right next to the Chungi Stream.
While on a weekend trip to Anmyeondo we stopped for lunch at the fish market. Its a great place to get fresh sea food that has just come off the boat.
Hongdae is one of the busiest night spots in Seoul. There are hundreds or bars, restaurants, cafes, and clubs. Anyone who’s been there one a weekend has seen the seas of people moving around the main drags. These shots where all shot with a long exposure so it might look a bit empty. This is also my first try at using HDR.
The Dongdaemun Design Plaza or DDP is a new complex located at Dongdaemun History and Culture Park Station. It sits on the space that used to be the baseball and soccer stadiums. The plaza has exhibition areas, shops, and a convention hall. it stands out quite a bit in the area but it is very interesting.Walking around you can find your self getting lost but there area plenty of interactive media things to play with and design displays to check out.
Ansan Mountain is between Yonsei University and Dongnimmun Station. It's an easy hike to the top and it offers a great view of the city. On a clear day its possible to see past Gangnam area to the south east.
Every October Haneul Sky Park near World Cup Stadium holds the Silver Grass Festival. The park its self used to be a land fill that was converted to a park. Once you climb to the top of the hill it opens up into a large grass covered prairie unlike any other place in the city. During the festival the park is open at night with light shows and live music. This time also offers great night views of the city and river and anytime of year Haneul Sky Park offers a great get away from city life without leaving the city.
