Tough challenge

[Seoul, Korea]
Although this situation might look somehow dramatic, this picture was taken out of the context as the parent was standing just out of this frame, trying to convince this little boy to keep smiling, as there were family photo session ongoing.

Focus

[Hakone, Japan]
After few minutes of staring through the window at the archers practice, I was invited to their premises, to be able to take some pictures. The atmosphere was really amazing: I was afraid to take pictures and to interfere archers ritual with camera’s mirror clapping. Shooting ritual was felt to be treated almost like sanctity. Uncommon, amazing experience.

Teamwork

Bag-mascot

[Tokyo, Japan]
Subway is exciting – you never know whom you can meet there – especially in Tokyo.
It was hard not to stare at this young couple and their mascot. Yes – it was alive. Yes – it was wearing a scarf.
I love Japan!

Tree Energy

[Seoul, Korea]
Once I’ve noticed this older man in one of Seoul’s parks, first thought was that he must be “tree energy drainer”, as he was standing still like this for a longer time. Even though it might sound funny, try to google “tree energy” – plenty of people can feel it, actually. Have you ever tried?

Police line-up

I’ve seen similar sights many times during my Seoul trip. Still do not know what is the story behind, but it was quite puzzling and somehow distressing, each time.

Wild, Wild West is dead

[Benton, California, USA]
Somewhere on the road during crazy road-trip from San Francisco,CA to Denver,CO. Refuel before heading to Death Valley’s deserts. Guy riding a horse is slowly approaching bar at the petrol station. Do I have sun-stroke already? It was something mystic,unreal. Wild, Wild West is dead.

Giant(s) pitcher

Street life

Simple life in colorful houses goes very slowly.

Navajo’s portrait

[Canyon de Chelly, Arizona, USA]
When you enter Navajo Indians area, there are some DO’s and DON’Ts you should respect. One of them is not to take pictures of people without asking permission.
This Navaho mother was happy to grant me a permission, especially after selling me some souvenirs from her stand, located next to one of canyon’s vista points.
