Looking back, it’s been a pretty swell month for photography.  From the typhoon damage through the Chusok flooding, mercurial Mother Nature provided a feast for the lens while the especially vibrant street scene was an ebullient foreground.

I evaluated this set of images not solely by the yardstick of photographic worth but also with consideration to the power of each scene.  In other words: the scenes captured often far outshine my photographic means.  But this site is, after all, about Korea – not promoting myself as a photographer.
