Downtown Gangneung

Gangneung’s Department of Tourism puts up a pretty colourful and neat front at tourism sites (though there is no defeating the litterers and smokers), but if you slip between newly renovated shop fronts into the alleys you will find grey pavement, miserable walls, unpainted breeze block, and spillover from private yards. But the things that make the alleys depressing for the casual passerby can provide interesting subjects for the photographer tired of photo-zones and coffee shops.

  1. That’s a neat-looking bike. Very nickable, if the chains weren’t there. The B&W gives the image the grittiness it deserves.

    Totally agree with your view of the side-streets – much better for photographers, if not for the people living there.
