What’s that little bag for?
While in North Korea in 2006, I noticed such a little bag on a door on three occasions, and managed to get a shot of two of them (it’s hard to get any shot at all of anything at all that is not a tourist destination in North Korea). I asked our friendly guide what it was, or what it was for, and she didn’t know either. In fact, she asked our other guide, who came up empty as well. It was as if they’d never even noticed something like this!
So, it may forever be a riddle.
This particular shot was taken in very bad light, and as a result is of poor technical quality. That can’t be helped, there was no second chance either. I just worked on it to make it as clear as possible, because the subject is so unusual. See the related shot (click on the image below) for a better-quality shot of a different, but similar, ‘door bag’.
To my inexperienced eye, this bit of door hardware looks much older than the other one.
