Over the past few weeks, I've had fun shooting spring scenes in some of my favorite neighborhoods of Seoul. I used BeFunky.com to add a vintage edge to my photos to emphasize the softer side of the city. Enjoy!
The first blossoms of spring pop up amongst the hanoks of Samcheongdong.
Pastels are an obvious trend this season, evidenced by the many wares on sale near Ewah Women's University.

Magnolias can be found throughout the Ewah Women's University campus. They smell as nice as they look!
The blossoms may be fake, but the flower displays at Eight Seconds on Garuso-gil in Sinsa-dong add to the beauty of the shopping district.
