Zach and Sara 3 Day Weekend!

We've got a three day weekend for Chuseok, Korea's Harvest Festival, Thanksgiving, meet your family deal.  So while everyone else was running around trying to see family, Sara and I took our scooter out looking for things to photograph.  We found some cool statues and a sunset over the river.  Here's Part 1 of Zach and Sara's third Korean Chuseok.  Wow, three years.  10 percent of my life.  Unbelievable.  As always, here's 10 pictures and some foolish comments.

The Baseball Stadium

The baseball stadium!  Pohang has no team, yet, but the Busan team and the Daegu team come and play here once in a while.  I tried to get my kids to name the future Pohang team that has not been announced but will someday exist and they looked at me like I was crazy.

Hey Batter Batter

This is a statue that depicts the legendary rising fastball.  It is a made up pitch that doesn't exist, especially with the rise depicted in this statue.  

Korean Art

Another of Pohang's finest architectural achievement's.  What is this?  I don't know.  Why is it here?  I don't know.


Down by the river we found the sunset.  Finally an open space where you can see more than fifty feet into the distance without the view being obstructed by a mountain or a grey building.

HDR Sara

Sara was cool enough to chill and watch the sunset while I ran all over the rive bank taking pictures.


I love this one.

The Grass

Getting arty.  

The Bridge

Pohang's bridge.  We saw plans for the future of this river, and the Pohang city planners seem to envision the city as a 21st century Venice with boats cruising up and down and shopping happening on the river banks and general happiness.  They are probably 25 years from this goal.

In the Water

This is an HDR style photo fixed up in Lightroom to appear HDR-ish.  I dig it.

The Way Home


  1. Beautiful pictures. I especially like the Sunset one. It looks like you may have found your second calling.

  2. Hey Karen, thanks for the compliments. I'm enjoying this new hobby, it gets me out and doing something which is good. I just realized I don't have a working e-mail address for you, so maybe you could send me an e-mail if you've still got mine. Thanks.
