Fall sunsets

Photobucket
Why are sunsets so much prettier in the fall? I'm thankful that I've been aware enough to notice them lately. And, catch them at just the right time. :)

Who needs a Harley Davidson?

I want one of these. :)

It doesn't take one long after being in country to come to the conclusion that not much is surprising in Korea. Some things make you laugh. Some things are ingenious (and you wish the ideas would make it to the states after being revamped to actually become legal...) Life has been interesting and enlightening for sure.

Yesterday, on the streets of Seoul, we passed something else that was definitely camera worthy. A cotton candy station mounted onto the back of a motorcycle/scooter? Um, oh yeah. It merited a second photo when we passed him again. He caught me this time. :)

Time to harvest the rice.

I feel like I'm doing a documentary. lol I stopped along the roadside today to take some snapshots of the rice before the busy farmers harvest it all soon. I've noticed that some of the fields are already being cleared. It's that time of year.

So, of course, I had to share with you all because I've shared the planting and growing season photos with you.

I love how every spare spot of plots is used somehow. The road in this photo is what we refer to as a rice patty road. Single lane. HUGE drop-off into the rice patty on either side. And along the sides of this one, soy beans are planted.

And, since it's October - the month of spooks. And, since I looked to my right and got spooked when I saw this guy, I have to share!

In Alabama, we had cotton field photos. In Kansas, we had wheat field photos. Why not have a rice patty photo in South Korea? It was windy and spur of the moment or it could have been a better photo. But, I took the opp. Boy, do they need haircuts or what? Sigh... they are wanting to NOT get haircuts though, so I'm dealing.
