Yesterday I went to Busan with Dave and some new friends. It was fun to play tour guide for the day. I also got to take them to my favorite place in Busan, the burial mounds! These mounds are the graves of ancient kings. Probably.
This picture is of a street food vendor near my apartment. She is making hoddeok, which is my absolute favorite street food in Korea. It’s kind of like a pancake stuffed with cinnamon, sugar and seeds and then fried. So fattening, but so delicious!
Her cart also sold fish cakes on a stick and silkworm larvae, which you can see in the photo below.
I let Faith do all of the photography for our trip to Japan because she brought her DSLR. When I saw them on Facebook, I noticed she had played with the colors on some before posting them… a lightbulb went off in my head. I took the original photos she had given me and decided to do some editing of my own.
When we were in Osaka, we walked through the shopping district and came across a river. The view was really pretty so we took a few photos. There were a lot of shadows and as novice photographers, it was hard for us to really capture the moment.
After playing around in Lightroom, I transformed the photo above into one I’m really happy with. What do you think?
