For some strange reason, the place looks a bit different. The first time I came here with a group, there were still a few people living here, and it wasn't as trashed as now. I remember some doors with glass panes which now are mostly broken. There were some doors that were re-locked too. I entered a house formerly unlocked 'cause I know it was one of my noted houses to shoot. Yes, it's re-locked. But the glass pane below the door was completely shattered that I was able to fit through it.
I immediately noticed the Namsan Tower outside the window and thought it already was nice framing. But then I switched my flashlight on and saw an even better scene.
What would scare me more would be to find a homeless person sleeping in one of these abandoned houses. But before my imagination of finding a dead person somewhere get me, I shook it off and went back to taking pictures.
I also noticed some gates are now open. One that caught my attention was this gate that lead me to a dark alley. Really dark one. Which lead me to some interesting scenes.
|Once A Bedroom|
There were mattresses tumbled and turned in this room. But what puzzles me is that door next to the clock. It leads outside which I don't see the point.
|By The Number|
Each house has a number painted on its door and I can only assume what it's for. This is one of the few houses which has large rooms. Well, it was large in comparison to most houses here.
After this shot, I noticed I'm shooting the same thing repetitively. Window after window after window. Sure, I like them. But I needed some variety.
I was enjoying going through tight alleys and dark corners. But I realized there's one particular image I want to produce out of this place. It's one of those Fred spotted the first time I got here.
But I'll talk about that on the next blog. Thanks for reading.
