Near Seoul, South Korea.
The winter is finally here. Woke up to a snowy scene outside my window. I’m not sure I care, I like the snow. As someone said to me recently the winter serves its purpose in that it helps one appreciate the light. Smaller amounts and harder to find, the search is that much more rewarding. I’ve always liked winter. Maybe not for that reason and maybe not even for one I can easily explain. The memories of summer seem to blend together in my mind in such a way that I rarely feel like much of any of them is important. Winters, on the other hand, seem to be easily distinguishable. Winters have character that summers lack. Spring and fall are nothing more than the flow to get to winter or summer so neither hold the same emotion for me. Maybe I’m a strange dude, but I look forward to the winter because I know that whatever happens it will be three or four months that will distinguish themselves from the what came and passed before and after.

Rain in Seoul today.
Anyway, on a side note..
I have been working on a blog post for some time that will be on my blog later this week. It’s one of the biggest blog post I’ve ever done and one that is more important to me than most. It’s not about anyone or anything in particular. It’s not about one particular camera (although it’s mostly photos from the Leica X2 and smaller cameras).
It’s about being an amateur photographer and what that means. It’s about taking photos of the people around you and the things that are important to you.
It’s not about street photography. I’m not a street photographer, while I do some street photography.
I’m just a dude who likes to take photos. Photos of whoever I’m around and whatever I see. I think this is the way photography needs to be for me.
Going small this weekend for a food tour around Seoul.
