1 year later

I just realized that I started this blogs one year ago (27th June 2006, link). 88 Posts later, its time to celebrate ! What an endurance ! Time to show another picture of myself (shot by my wife Angeline, no tripod, so its only me)
Thanks for reading my 2 cents and come back to follow me on my little panoramic journey.

From DMZ with Love

A short visit to the DMZ (Demilitarized Zone!), a strange place between North and South-Kora. Advertised as a very tense experience by the tour operator transporting busloads of tourists (South Korea citizens are not allowed to visit the DMZ btw). It is still the neutral zone between the 2 (1?) countries but somehow converted into a attraction. I didnt feel the espionage like tense atmosphere !
Freedom Bridge
(Bridge to the DMZ, not to North Korea, even people behave like
at the former wall between east and west germany)

Dorasan Station
(South Korea expect the border to be opened, sooner or later, so
they provide a full infrastructure on their side inclusive a
full working train station (to nowhere now, but to Pyeonyang later,
whenever that gonna happen)

View to Northkorea
From the viewpoint that allows a sneak into the north, unfortunately
they dont allow to bring the camera behind the "photo line" to avoid take pictures
from the supersecret stuff there (on the southern side).
Hey secret agent folks, did you have a look at Google Earth yet ?

Tunnel Entrance
The plastic thing looks somehow like the that guy running the
show on the northern side ....

OK, no more panoramas from Korea. Anyway no more pictures left.
In case you dont understand the title,
remember the early 007 movie ?

Noblex goes Seoul

Finally some turning panoramas from Seoul made with the Noblex. I need to admit its my favorite camera at the moment. Thats changing from time to time, but most of the time the Noblex and the Ansco are currently my trusty companions .

Seoul with the Ansco in bw

There cant be a trip where not at least one roll of black and white film, preferably Agfa or Era goes through the Ansco.

With the Ansco in Seoul

Finally I got the film back from the lab, Iam already back for days without an update to the blog. Some panoramic korean impressions made with an equally cheap film, Konica 200 (No longer produced). A cheap camera likes a cheap film. Seoul ? Not much to say about it, interesting, but not the most exciting place in Asia. Is a megacity like Taiwan, Hong Kong,.. To be honest: I just dont like Kimji !
