Tombstone!

I’m back in Arizona and I’m not moving away! We had so much fun in Korea but it is so very nice to be back in our hometown of Tucson, AZ. Last weekend we went to Tombstone for “Wyatt Earp Days.” Here are some of my favorite photos.

Ulleungdo, Korea’s Island Paradise

Dare I say a stay on this island is better than Jeju? I’ve been to both now, and while Jeju is unbelievably gorgeous, Ulleungdo will make you feel like you are a thousand miles away from the hustle of the “real world.”

The stars on the map annotate places I’ve been.

The island is about 217 kilometers from the ferry port in Pohang (one of the terminals that services trips to Ulleungdo) and is located in the East Sea between Korea and Japan. From Pohang, expect a three-hour ferry ride out at 9:50am. This is the only departure time. Returns to Pohang are at 3:30pm daily.

We spent two nights and two days on Ulleungdo, just barely enough time to do everything we wanted to do. I suggest at least another day on the island if you can swing it. There is one road that goes almost all the way around tDSC_2951che island. It takes 1.5 hours to make it to the end of the road, but not because the island is large. The road is small and meanders through scenic scapes that even a man who likes to get from point A to point B will want to stop and soak in. Multiple one lane tunnels wind themselves through the volcanic rock; you’ll have to wait your turn to go through if traffic is coming from the opposite direction. But no worries, you’re on island time here. Continue reading Ulleungdo, Korea’s Island Paradise

Photo a Day Challenge: Day 19

#19. Three of a kind (these are my Jindo puppies).

I have A LOT of work to do to improve my indoor photography. This winter I’ve slowly been trying to work on this technique. Given my subjects and the fact that I don’t have soft boxes, I had to crank up the ISO in order to have a smaller aperture and a faster shutter speed. Wish these were crisper but one day I’ll get there! CJT_9819c

PS: I skipped #18 because I’m terrible with product photography. Ha!
