And Now


I can’t remember if I mentioned how much I loved the café/coffee shop culture in Seoul but it is absolutely wonderful. Their attention to detail and imagination is unmatched elsewhere I have traveled in the world. Every little shop no matter how small had a unique feel all its own and each seemed to hold a sense of pride but in this calm, understated sort of a way that is hard to describe well. Needless to say it was one of my favorite parts of my time in Korea and I could have easily spent most of my time there trying any and all interesting coffee shops that I came across.

The shop in the photo here was one of many which represented a company selling other things such as one making or selling amazing stationary, or bags, or maybe other sorts of inventive gifts and items. This one in particular represented a company called 10×10 which sells a wide manner of interesting things not only branded under their own name but other gadgets and gifts as well. This location specifically sold things relevant to travel because the coffee shop had a travel theme to it. As a testament to the level of detail in many of the café’s I, the receipts in 10x10were printed to resemble a boarding pass for an airplane. The neon here caught my eye as a wonderful centerpiece to the middle of the café and I have been meaning to get this posted as a wallpaper for months now it seems so I hope you enjoy it.

    Just stumbled upon your photography, it’s truly inspiring, you’ve got alot of talent.
    I believe I’ll take up photography as a hobby in the future but at the moment my life is pulling me in another direction. Doesn’t make me appreciate your work any less though, beautiful photos!

    A shameless 50ft addict here.
    Basically each time you update, my wallpaper changes for a week.
    I particularly love this one, just because of…well everything about it. I threw it on my iPhone wallpaper and I have to say, on both my home screen and regular wallpaper it works beautifully.
    Keep up the excellent work sir.

    Unless the cafe belongs to a chain, bathroom area is kept to
    a minimum to make the most of seating areas.

    Some custom-made home builders also build on land they have which is known as a spec house – short for speculative.

When sharing images via your personal blogs I kindly ask that you link back directly to either the post the image was taken from or the base of the website at and give a credit to Do not re-post full resolution desktop images anywhere without permission. If you would like to use an image for your blog background or something of the sort simply write to ask first. Support the artwork you admire! Also, it is greatly appreciated if you do NOT link directly to the zip files. This is more or less the same as re-posting them as it circumvents the tiny bit of support I ask of you which is to simply link back to the original post for others to enjoy the site.

It’s not fair to artists if you do not credit their work and link back to the original content creator. It is theft plain and simple and blogs that attempt to somehow be mysterious by not giving credit to the creators are simply hurting the artistic community as a whole. If you love it so much then please, support it! The artistic community on the Internet is based on trust. Without trust then what do we have? are you going to be one of the responsible users out there or will you be among the bottom feeders, stealing content and passing it off as your own to make a quick buck in ad sales.

Use your best judgement and we will get along just fine.

Thank you for your understanding and support!
