Doors. I love doors.

The symmetry. Straight, ordered, and functional.

And symbolic of so much more. The entry into another space, another world.

You leave one section of space into an entirely different area.

What is there? You have to go through in order to find out.

 

About the shot:

I couldn’t have faked a more perfect shot of two doors in the Seoul subway system. In Korea, the subway system is ridiculously clean and easy to use (compared to my limited experience in Chicago, New York, and Tokyo).

Usually you don’t have access to rooms but this was a sectioned-off area leading who knows where.

I often find myself thinking about past decisions, “doors” I’ve gone through or doors I’ve passed by. Each decision leads to its own adventure. Go through enough rooms and you realize you’re an entirely different person from when you started. All because you went through a few doors.

Big Mac

Portfolio_2016_06-309It’s just a Big Mac. It’s a Big Mac. With curly fries.

Yes, McDonalds is in Korea and yes, they have Big Macs. And they taste exactly the same as they taste in America. I suppose that’s a good thing, right?

As much as I love Korean food here in Seoul, sometimes you gotta go with an oldie but goodie. Especially after a late night and a half-dozen-too-many shots.

Photo notes:
Simple softbox positioned up and to the left. My kitchen sink and fridge has been edited out. Saturation has been given a little love, and it’s been shot on my kitchen island. One of the best purchases I’ve made in this country.
