Best photos August-December 2015

I have just been on holidays for three weeks. One of my few accomplishments has been to select the best photos from my first four and bit months in Korea (with a side trip to Japan).

(I have been having a lot of trouble with WordPress’s photo insertion functions. Among other things, I have not been able to add captions. I know how to, but it won’t let me.) (PS preparing for our trip to Korea in Dec 2022 – Jan 2023, I am attempting to add the captions another way.)

Batch 2 (Jan – Apr 2016) Batch 3 (May – Aug 2016)

I spent four days in Fukuoka Japan getting my visa there because of a delay in processing  ( This is a Japanese garden near Ohorikoen Park. I thought that all gardens in Japan were Japanese garden. This one is a ‘traditional Japanese garden’. IMG_0415Fukuoka castle at nigh, handheld (

IMG_2982I travelled to Daegu for two days to see a performance which I later found out was also in my university’s auditorium (with zero advertising). Still, it was an opportunity to go. Two days before had been solid rain, the day before had been totally cloudy, and my one day of sightseeing was like: (from Duryu tower) (see next photo)

The day after Christmas I caught a bus to Incheon airport to meet my wife who was arriving from Australia. As I reached the airport I saw the full moon rising. I investigated the exact rising time the next night and took my tripod out onto the roof of my apartment building.
