The morning’s lovely soft light was the effect of very polluted and dusty spring air. Not a day for including the sky in landscape photos.
I wonder how many of my posts have been called ‘Apartments’. They are such a large part of any scene in Korea that it’s difficult not to have a large collection of photos with apartments in them.
Korea’s birth rate keeps dropping and last year there were more deaths than births. But new apartment complexes keep popping up everywhere. Perhaps houses are falling down in other places.
You can see a mostly empty field in the foreground. In a couple of years there will probably be another greyish-white apartment complex and pine trees will be purchased from another part of the country to replace the persimmon trees that are there now.
I told you that you would see the pole and tree again. This time with a longer lens (50mm) to avoid the curving horizon and put the focus on the tree and pole rather than the whole landscape.
I woke up uncharacteristically early one morning and noticed that there were some lovely clouds in the sky. I grabbed a camera and went out to make some photos of the neighbourhood. You may have seen this tree and pole on the site before. And you’ll see them again.
I think I need more practise with wide-angle lenses. The tree and pole look fine (the pole is actually tilted), but the background buildings on the right look like they are starting to roll up like in Inception.
