We here in our house hope you all were as pleased with your Christmas celebrations as much as we were with ours! Special thanks to Noah, Jill, and Mircea for the package that the mail person delivered to us Christmas morning with its wonderful photo montage!
I've just discovered Raysoda, a Korean photoblog gallery akin to flickr.
There's precious little info on the site to those of us whose command of Eastern tongues is nonexistent, but the photos are eloquent in their own expressive language.
-- This image has the date/time stamp of 2005-12-26 20:45, which is odd since it's Dec 26, at 10am in my time zone here and now (not odd if you're comfortable with convention of the international date line of course).
Here's a little info about the site from the GlobalKorea blog:
RaySoda is an online gallery, a community, and an IT system for Korean photographers. Plenty of photos are posted and displayed continually. Both professionals and amateurs take part. Displayed are selected photo images recommended by the community members, the panel, and the operator of the website. Words are in Korean only, but you will have no problem looking around the images, which are the universal language worldwide. For me, diversity is the first appeal. You can feel the life and culture of Korea from many different minds and sights. Just click wherever the index finger comes up as you scroll at the site.
