|I put a new feature in this webpage using Flash based Slideshow.
Believe this feature will help me to upload new photos more often
(without creating new HTML page).
It took a few days (and nights) of hard working, to reach here - its great achievement for me - a absolute program illiterate.
Please enjoy the slideshow of my new photos.
There are 2 Galleries, one is B&W the other is Color.
So far I put 15 albums.
Each album carries 20-50 photos.
Once the slideshow opens, click on the frame to activate controls.
Click on button to see the list of the albums.
To see a picture in bigger size (high resolution), just click on the picture. New window will open with big photo.
SlideshowPro & Slideshowpro Director used.

|I made this website to share my experiences, thinking and photos
I took, with others. I owe so much from web society, as many others
do, that I want to give back with something I can do. So this site
is dedicated to every person who may enjoy seeing my pictures and reading articles.
All started in June 1999.
I am 47 years old Korean settled in Bangkok.
Hope you enjoy...

|70 Rai - my personal Photo project
70 Rai is the name of place.
However, my point is not Poverty.
I started this project January 2006.
Color Photos (1999-2004)
I took color photos (with slide films) until 2004.
Photos of 2002 - May 2003
Photography changed my life.
I am still a businessman (transportation industry) but, I see the world with eyes of photographer.
I like the positive part of reality.
I think everyone living in the world enjoys the everyday living - consciously or not. And I believe that is the most important part of human that could keep the civilization from extinction.
People are created happy, that is the way I see the world. I like to take pictures of people, when they shows happiness, eagerness and joy of living.
Nowadays I use 2 camera bodies - Nikon F3 for color slide film and the FM2
for B&W with a few fixed focus lenses - 24mm F2.8, 50mm F1.8, 105mm F2.5 and
I like manual camera.
Keeping camera bag light is also very helpful.
I do not use much film.
I do some assignment for magazines, once in a while. I feel pressure when I take pictures for others (not for my own). But, I try hard to keep my style when I do the jobs. If a photo editor chose me, that means he/she wants something in my style. I use only natural light (or lightings as it is) mostly.
Last, not the least, I apolozise not to update the site more often.

|Writing something is always hard for me.
When that is exposed to many other people, its even more scary.
You may take it as my personal expression about the world that I have.
I hope you to join me (by writing some comment on the each page) so that we can share my various ideas together.
Web made many nice things possible, and we are living in the world anyone can express their own opinion.
I hope my writing to be taken as a one of the millions of ideas, so that accepted easier.
To some Koreans, who don't like the idea making the website in English;
