Memory Monday: Old ways

I’m not sure of the location of any of these images although I keep trying to ferret out any possible visual clues. I believe some of them may have been shot around the Korean Folk Village site; this living museum depicts traditional life during the Joseon dynasty. One photo below shows the album’s original owner posing next to a stone […]

Memory Monday: Town and country

I can’t really be certain where most of the photos in this album were shot, but trying to figure it out has led me to some interesting places! Using the translator in the Google Lens app I noticed the name Namsan Clinic in the image above; Mt. Namsan and Namsan Park are located in the south portion of Seoul. I […]

They include images from my outing to the Lyon Street Steps. The first part of my trip was by cable car; I normally avoid riding the cable cars because they’re usually […]

Even though we now know these types of albums are actually destructive to prints (especially those in color), they are still being sold in stores. Pictures stored in them tend to become brittle and discolored and, […]

Train, trolley, and bus, Part 1

You may have noticed by now that I really enjoy shooting photos while traveling — as in, literally going down the road (or track, as the case may be). Sometimes my favorites of these shots aren’t especially good photography, but I don’t mind too much because they manage to capture some memorable or transient detail that otherwise might have been […]

Below the ridgeline

Looking back through my images of┬áthe hiking trails in The Sea Ranch always makes me feel better about things. We spent a week there in late September this year, and if there’s anything I enjoy as much as being near the ocean, it has to be wandering through the redwoods and other trees of Northern California’s coast range.
