Why I dont let others use my camera!

Yesterday’s most viewed North Korea pic from my Flickr account – below is a picture of myslef in front of the big Kim II-sung statue, Kaesong, North Korea – and a prime example of why I don’t normally let other people use my camera.

Kaesong, North Korea

Yesterday’s most viewed North Korea pic from my Flickr account – below is a view of the small city of Kaesong (Kaesŏng), North Korea.  This picture was taken while holding my 300mm lens nice and study on the walk back from the imposing Kim Il-sung statue that overlooks the city.  Kaesong looks amazing, just a few miles north of the DMZ, it was the first destination outside Pyongyang we visited.  What I wouldn’t give to have had the chance to walk around and photograph this small city, but alas, we only got to visit museums, statues, stamp shops, and old tombs.
