177/365 Korean Photographer

177/364: I was out looking for pictures in the Hae Mang Dong neighborhood of Gunsan today. The neighborhood is mostly abandoned and will be demolished this year except for a few houses. I ran into another photographer out shooting, Chang Su Hyun, he asked if I spoke Korean and I told him a little. To my surprise I could understand some of what he was saying. I was able to figure out his name where he lived, and worked all in Korean and no doubt because he was speaking slowly. We exchanged portraits and e-mail addresses and went on our way. I was left with a great sense of accomplishment for being able to communicate in his language and not just English. This is his blog: http://poet314.blog.me/ January 2, 2012
