Random pictures, part 30

:

Some more random pictures for your enjoyment. Taken across my travels across Seoul and Korea, they’re a reflection of, well, absolutely nothing – but they’re fun to look at:

A pretty cool mural – seen near Chungjeongno station.

If I’m going to get my smile ‘designed’ somewhere, a D+ is not the grade I want to give it.

What?! Cauliflower in Korea? WOW. For those of you reading outside of Korea, cauliflower has not been seen in a market before this during my time in Korea (since March 2008). I suspect it’s not grown in large quantities, but I’m hoping that changes. Found near Nowon station at a place called L-Mart.

I love how animals serve themselves – this poor oblivious chicken serves himself with a beer to keep things interesting.

The Invisible Man – one of three hiding behind newspapers in Hyehwa.

OK, so it’s an ad – but it’s a cute one. I love the little girl’s face – it screams ‘did you fart on it?’

Need a sticker for your door / window / table / whatever? Or just want to learn some Korean? Here’s the place to go – a street vendor near Konkuk University station (line 2).

Best caption wins a cookie. Found in Hongdae.

They’re finally up and working – a bevy of electronic touch-screen devices in every subway station offering a subway map, an internet phone allowing you to call anywhere in Korea, and a number of other related services. It’s a shame they can’t transmit a WiFi signal so I can use my iPod in the subway station, but meh… Some are still covered with a fabric cover – apparently not all of the computer components have been received / installed…

Matchmaker, matchmaker / make me a match / find me a find / catch me a catch… I’m not precisely certain what we’re advertising for, but the English wording seems fairly clear. That’s one way to boost Korea’s birth rate, I guess… Telephone number blurred since I’m not advertising for them (not for free, at least).

Austin Powers called – he wants his awesome color scheme back. If those cars don’t see you, they’re blind.
