At first glance, we thought these were homeless women. But when we noticed how many there were (everywhere!), and also how organized they looked (many playing card games with each other; delicious meals prepped and being served…) we realized there must be another story.

For this week’s challenge, a few shots on our way to and from Fukuoka, Japan via the waters of this sea that shall not be named.

Photos taken in August 2012

A challenge about perspective taking, Weekly Photo Challenge: One Shot, Two Ways, with the fine folk at The Daily Post.
On Sunday, I saw my dear friend, Soon-Seon, get married. Her smile radiated throughout the whole event: from the pre-ceremony picture taking, to the buffet hall walk through in her hanbok.
I remember thinking her smile could be the subject of this week’s photo challenge, but then on the way back home this happened.

This was perhaps one of the best lead ups to a sunset that I’ve ever experienced. There definitely a lot of gold on this day. :)
