Weekend with Ear Infection

November 13th, 2010
Georgy came to Seoul to see us and do some other things. Karjam and I took a walk on 남산 Namsan. The three of us went to see a movie in the theatre. The rest of the day I worked on interview questions, revising a paper, my PPT for the presentation on the 18th and so on.

Photos: In fact the colors aren't always this good, Korea's weather this year made them turn out especially bright and bold.

I like these photos with the distortion and the crud on the mirrors.

Yes, I look goofy. For one thing that's my extra ear protection look (hat tightened down for no air leaks with a scarf). For another thing, I just naturally look goofy. But my husband is hot.

I know, I'm lucky.

The three of us had pancakes for breakfast. Georgy and I went to 인사동 Insadong and later to 신촌 Shinchon. My ear infection made me feel like someone was sticking crochet needles in my ear and into my brain and grinding them around. It felt that way on Saturday about three to four hours, on and off, Sunday the feeling started around noon and got more intense, it comes and goes in waves and is still very much in my head at the moment. On a big PShop kick tonight, scroll down for photos. As always, if you click on a photo you can see it larger.


  1. First two photos remind me of the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Garden in Seal Harbor, Mt. Desert Island. About this time of year I was bushwacking and stumbled upon the garden, quote: "Enter another world as you pass through the circular Moon Gate to come upon a sunken lawn... Stroll the woodland “Spirit Path,” flanked by Korean tombstone figures, all the while enclosed by a rose-colored serpentine wall, capped with yellow tiles from China’s Forbidden City." The tile capped wall left a lasting impression.

  2. Wow, your photos are just gorgeous.

  3. I need to learn more about compositions. Your photos always look so well thought out.
