First we met at the Twosome Cafe. Not a whole lot of people showed up, indeed I would say it was rather a truly small gathering. I really hope things can pick up more in the future, and I am sure they will.
Anyways we talked over tea and coffee, and then discussed about the blood donation. Roboseyo handed out a questionnaire used for Non-Korean donors to check off to make sure they can donate. After checking through it I realized I am not a good potential donor. For several reasons, but mostly because of my disease and the medication I take for it. I don't even know my blood type so I was hoping to go along and get that figured out. But decided to go to the photo exhibit instead.
You might be wondering why I didn't make a 2S2 event in my area, like I have been working on. Well, to tell you the truth I am at odds with the people in my area. I started the facebook group to get to see who would like to come. But things are still fuzzy. I told the group I would be busy this Saturday and so another guy picked up the chance and offered a trip to Everland, but alas he had no takers. Maybe I will put something together for next month since it will be warmer (oh wait I just remembered I have a plan with JH). Hmmmm
Anyways back to this Saturday.
Their still working on getting that gate fixed.
We arrived at the ticketing office for the Sejong Art Center and said our goodbyes to the party that was going off for blood donation.
Inside there were many people attending the exhibit.
Photos were strictly prohibited inside so all I got are memories. The exhibit was full of large scale color photography from his collection. It felt like I was walking through a National Geographic magazine, complete with the glossy-page feel. Seeing his photos up close and on a large scale you can tell this man has got the skills. He uses composition and framing in just the right way to help you know who is the subject of the photo. I would say, though, that his photos seem to exotize Asian culture. However, the show really was a head-banger as you can't help but feel so inferior to all the places he has traveled.
I would recommend seeing this show because it could really help you pick up some photographic skills and ideas.
This 2S2 was a bit calmer than I would have preferred but any time spent with good friends is good enough for me. ;)
