Doors

I sometimes use an iPhone application called Hipstamatic to take photos.  It has a good selection of film simulations and frames to choose from.  The film simulation I most often use is called Kodot Xgrizzled and I like it because it produces interesting colours instead of just making photos look like they were taken using outdated film.  And you can never really tell what sort of colour shift you’re going to get.  Even photos of the same subject taken seconds apart will look somewhat different.

Recently I’ve been going through both film and computer folders to separate the wheat from the chaff (there’s a lot of chaff . . . .) and maybe find a few good photos I can share here.  Today I came up with four photos of doors made with Hipstamatic.  All are traditional Korean wooden doors.  Two of them were made at a family shrine in Gangneung, one at a residence here in Gangneung, and one was made in the village of Wanggok a couple of hours north of Gangneung.  I hope you enjoy them.
