Gyeongbokung Palace (경복궁)

The palaces in Korea are at the most beautiful shape probably during the fall season with all of the vibrant colors gathering together. We got there at the end of fall and most of the leaves are gone. Even though we did not have a chance to observe that, our trip to  Gyeongbokung (Seoul) was still amazing with our wonderful tour guide with a lot of interesting stories. The cold breeze brought us a wonderful scene of flying leaves across the lake. It was just speechless standing right there and catch that moment.

How to get there: Line #3, Gyeongbokung Station (경복궁역), Exit 5 or Line #5, Gwanghwamun Station (광화문역), Exit 2.

At the main gate. I'm glad that I bought a mini gozilla-pod. It worked everytime we needed a team photo. Splendid!

With an officer. Back then.

Where I stand in the photo is where the king used to stand whenever he had a special meeting with his staff. Also, from here, back then, he was able to see through the three gates and watch the daily life of his citizen. I was just wondering if he needed a binocular...

My model took a break.

A Temple

Late Fall at the Palace. It would be better if this could be an ink wash painting.

A near-by temple, next to the palace and the national folk museum.

This is actually a children museum where they exhibit a lot of Korean traditional games for kids back then. A lot of children are still playing those. It kind of reminded me of the old days when playing those games was an essential part of my childhood.

Had fun outside the palace
