Downtown Walkabout

Sometimes I go to a pre-decided place with a tripod and make a number of photographs. Other times I just step outside the door and go left or right as the mood takes me. Near the beginning of October I did that several times and here areĀ a few of the better photos from those walks.

In the downtown market there is a shop that sells Buddhist supplies. Incense, candles, grey clothes, and small statues like this one. This Buddha stands outside the shop under the electricity meter. I’m sure this is profound in some way.

Tourists come to the Gangneung market for things like the fried chicken and other foods but most of the market is not very picturesque.

This is the large 5-way intersection in downtown Gangneung. I don’t know what’s on top of that very large pole. Lights? Speakers? Death rays?

This is a concrete wall in my neighbourhood. A patch of concrete fell out and a seed fell in and grew into a tree. Daoism in action. This is the sort of photo that I like most. Graphically simple but tells a story.
