10,000 km And a Shave

I recently joined a fun facebook photography club. This week's theme was "old school". I had lots of ideas, it was just tricky getting them to work. I wanted to do an old school basketball picture with converse and short shorts. I wanted to have a young dude reading a newspaper with an old dude in the back surfing the net on a computer. I wanted to take a picture of a guy dressed like he was from the movie "Grease" smoking a cigarette. Most of these would have taken some help. I'm still trying to find a good friend here who lives close to me and loves cameras as much as I do.

I finally went with "Old School Shaving".

And on a side note... I just put 10,000 kilometers on my motorcycle.

Motorcycle Trip to Tae-on

Oh how I missed the ocean. It was good to visit.

Today I went on a quick motorcycle trip to Korea's west coast. 3 hours there and 3 hours back. Here are a few pics I took while there. I found some awesome old rusty anchors... I liked them, so I took a lot of pictures of them.

Oh yeah, I also had some great eel soup for lunch.

And I captured a fun family beach activity.

"Yey, I'm hunting for bamboo clams!"

"First I've got to dig and dig until I find the bamboo clam's tunnel."
(Note: ketchup bottle is not really ketchup... it's salt... see next photo)
(Note 2: blue shovel really is just a blue shovel)

"Next I pour salt down the tunnel's opening.
(This was the freaky part folks. The clam would dart its little head? tongue? whatever it is... in and out... The little girl had to be quick or it would escape back down its tunnel.)

"I got it! I got it!"
(Note: technically I believe her grandma was faster and got it, but she let the girl hold it.)

"Now I'm bored. Can we get some ice-cream? Hey, why is that white guy taking pictures of anchors? That's pretty dumb if you ask me."

Just a few pics from the baseball game.
Cool things...
-Super hyper cheerleader man
-Super carry everything snack and drink selling lady
-Super awesome old man who snags a fly ball from the hands of another man, but doesn't keep it and gives it to the other guy's son
-Super awesome burrito that I carried in with me, and I didn't even have to smuggle it in since it was okay to bring your own food
-Super awesome ride home on the motorcycle because I didn't have to ride the subway with the stampede of people that left the stadium at the end of the game
