Busy Seoul traffic taken from a bridge on Yongsan Army Post.
A local Korean college student and his two friends/colleagues stopped us in the streets of Itaewon to ask us questions for a project they were working on for school. The reflection of my friend Mike can be seen in his shades.

Interesting character presumably selling goods on the streets of Itaewon.
This young lady was selling pillows from a sidewalk in Itaewon.
A lovely couple smiles for as we passed by. They own a handbag shop.
Beautiful young lady posing for me with her amazing Hasselblad medium format film camera. I stopped her from crossing a street in Itaewon after I noticed her Hassy. :)
We took a taxi to Yongsan Station to observe and photograph the fireworks competition. Reports indicated approximately 600k - 1 million people would attend the event...I believe it.
Had to use my tripod with the center column fully extended to shoot over the heads of many surrounding Korean citizens. The fireworks display was a competition between South Korea, USA, Germany, and a few other countries.
Trying to make our way to the subway station since no taxi's were available, not to mention traffic wasn't even moving, I turned around in an attempt to show the vast number of people trying to leave the area as well.
Seoul skyline as seen from a baseball field on Yongsan Army Post after the fireworks competition. This was my first attempt at stitching a panorama. I took nine vertical shots to create this. As you can see, it's very distorted and shows vignetting in each of the nine frames. Better luck next time!
