    Beautifully captured !

  • Thanks. I asked her to pose for a photo just before this but Korean girls do this head tilt thing to look cute. It looks unnatural to me so I snapped her again when she’d relaxed.

    Excellent photo…where exactly was this taken? I went to a lot of the sites around the country and especially in Seoul when I was stationed there in the mid 90’s.

  • It was a traditional house up the hill in Bukchon. It was open on the particular Sunday we were there for people to go through. The main street you walk up, when we got to the top, we were directed left & back down the next street to this house.
