FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (35mm, f/4.5, 1/1400 sec, ISO200)

When I finally reached the “right” palace in Seoul the light was perfect but the doors closed. Not the only bad surprise that evening.

But I was lucky. The place in front of the palace was full of beautiful young ladies in traditional dresses. They just left the palace and walked away but some stayed to take some images of themselves in front of the main gate.

The light in front of the gate was really special. Already warm and soft but still very strong. Maybe that’s the reason why so many stayed after their visit to take some pictures of themselves. But I was on my own. My X Pro-2 is not suitable for selfies and the front camera of my iPhone is crap. So I decided to take pictures of the people around me. As they were occupied taking pictures I was unnoticed most of the time.

The girls in the traditional dresses looked beautiful and truly exotic. Thanks to google I know that those nice dresses are called Hanbok. If you guess that Hanbok means something fancy or romantic like “colourful flower of the rising sun” you are wrong. Hanbok literally means Korean clothing.

Seems that the Koreans are down-to-earth people.
