Peaceful Island, Somaemul

2009-08-27 9

Short but unforgettable sweet journey. Somaemul means tiny island, from ‘so’ which means little and ‘Do’ as island.

It’s a tiny island, called Somaemul-do where only 34 people are living now. Korean letter ‘So’ means ‘Little/Tiny’ and ‘Do’ means ‘Island’ so ‘Somaemul-do’ is ‘Little Island of Maemul’ It’s far from Seoul, capital of S.Korea almost 4~5 hours by automobile but many amateur/professional photographers visit there because of the beautiful scene & peaceful atmosphere. It’s a small place but very crowded for the holidays & summer vacation in Korea.

I spend there a great moment with an old Lomography friend in last autumn. If you’d like to stay there more than 1 night, lots of different residences are available in this island!

    LomoLocations: French Chateaux Revisited

    Chateaux served as houses of powerful lords, often of nobility and royalty. Most French castles reek of relevant history and monarchical drama, which makes them more interesting. And though France has moved on from the monarchy with liberté, égalité, fraternité, they remain strong and solid as tourist attractions. Thankfully, Lomographers have been around France and regularly share images of these amazing castles.
