I was going to post two photos of cars parked illegally on a cycling path and a sidewalk but changed my mind. I remember Sam Abell writing or saying something like, “There are many ugly things in the world, but there will never be enough beautiful things.” The photos of the bad parking just make me angry, and who needs more of that? So I am posting two photos that make me feel pleased with myself. And maybe they will please you as well.

Yongbong Service Station and Yongbong Transport Limited, Seongsan.

I’ve posted photos of this gas station before, but I stood more to the right this time and included the yellow line in the road. The line nicely balances the orange-yellow in the gas station roof. And how nice that the taxis are orange as well.


Between Geumsan Village and the Neighbourhood of Hoesan.

I’m not sure if parking in front of a road sign is illegal or not, but at least it’s not on a sidewalk or cycling path. There is no deep meaning to this – I just liked the tilted sign and the way the arrows seem to give some sense of motion to a parked car.

  1. Looks like the Kia is going the wrong way 🙂

    Interesting perspective on the first shot – I remember an earlier one of the same place. I think the inclusion of the yellow line in the foreground helps frame the image and as you say, resonates with the other lines in the garage roof.

    1. I don’t remember that yellow line being there before, but maybe I was always standing closer to the gas station. I never thought about it as being a frame, but you’re right. It keeps the eye from falling out of the bottom of the photo. Something I did previously by darkening the asphalt.
