jaejin hwang







see: photography by jaejin hwang, originally from south korea and now residing in ohio.

these are some photos from his latest series giant america. he's a photographer as well as a graduate research associate in a biodynamics lab. 

often we all think we're always to busy with work and life, but it's important that we also spend time to do things for ourself or for our passion, be it photography, craft, art, music or any hobbies or anything at all that you enjoy doing (this is also note to self). looks like jaejin is one of a great example of someone who's doing this.

incredible india

took me a while but here are some photos from my trip in india (not in any particular order, see full album on my flickr).

i don't really want to bore you with travel stories but here are a few highlights:

▲ taj mahal is just special and mind blowing. the whole architecture and history is just breath taking. 

▲ the trips between cities were just crazy busy noisy. animals are just everywhere. sheep, camels, pigs, donkeys, monkeys and of course cows. also all the honking and trucks and overloaded buses or tuktuks. super crazy.

▲ i love the amber fort in jaipur. the architecture which is a mix of islamic and hindu style and the landscape view surrounding it was so stunning you'll feel like you step into an ancient arabian nights tale. 

▲ bargain shopping at the bazaar in pink city was a good fun and satisfying. 

▲ the food was sooo good and i had the best indian food (obviously) although by the end of the trip i didn't want to eat any more curry. 

india is nothing like any other travels that i've done before, it was such an interesting place to be and i'm glad i made it there. if you have a chance to go to india or thinking of going, stop all those doubtful feeling and go go go. or if india has never been on your travel list before, well you should add this in or at least start considering. there are still some film rolls that i am yet to develop from the trip, stay tuned!
