Old station, next century

old Seoul station.jpgOld world charm, made substantially prettier by the effect of lighting for whatever reason. Not to be held back in the moment of inspiration, I borrowed my wife’s Galaxy Note 2. The result is what you see here.

Seoul station was built circa 1910 by the Colonial Japanese. It has a nice frontage drawn from Victorian influences from what I can guess. Serving Metro line number number 1 and 4, it certainly is a bit of a hike between platforms.

What always flabbergasts me, is, why can’t they wait until they get home? Chosen to take a nap outside of Onyangcheon train station, the pavement is fortunately covered in recycled rubber, softening the asphalt.

No sense of decorum; a bench would be more appropriate, as he ‘lies’ not far from the escalators that lead up to the station. Though, it does makes a funny photograph.
