Obligatory Elevator Self-Portrait

  1. The selfie is great…would you do that when others are in the elevator?! Maybe best not, but if you could shoot one silently it might be fun. Not sure I could get away with it – even the Leica, although whisper quiet, would be too loud for a small environment like this. The Hasselblad would be like a small bomb going off. But i think these new-fangled digi snappers have a stealth mode, do they not… 😉


  2. The selfie is definitely a solo activity.The elevator ride would be long over before I could set up the electronic shutter on my X-T3. And I'm not sure the D810 has a completely electronic shutter. And mobile phones by law have to make a sound when you make a photo. That's true in Korea and Japan. It's to prevent the pervos from doing upskirts and so on.


  3. I really like your “Shed and Tree” photo here, Marcus. The shed is more or less disappearing of course, but that’s probably due to the foliage and all that sorts in that big tree covering most of the thing? I don’t know if the leaves ever fall of those trees all the way over in Korea, but maybe they get different colors at times and such? Might have been worth to snap it up again at other times of year? Or maybe even done one in colour? Or maybe it’s best just the way it is for all I know. It’s good, anyway 🙂
    And the selfie is grand, of course :))


    1. Thanks, Roy. The elevator photos are a way of tracking the progress of my hair from light brown to grey . . . .
      Korea has a mix of coniferous and deciduous trees, so autumn brings bright autumn colours and in winter the landscape it very bleak and depressing.
