Padlocks of Love
Love Love Love — Me You Me You
Make a wish, and lock it there.
There’s a lot of love there…
Side Story #1:
The photo was taken at Yongdusan Park in Busan, South Korea.
Right before I took these photos, there’s a couple — bride & bridegroom — followed by photographers and a videographer standing under the tent (it was raining).
They lock the padlock, and then throw the key to the trees behind the fence, while shouting something — don’t ask me, I don’t speak Korean.
I once saw a similar thing in Enoshima, Kanagawa, Japan — although the custom or ritual seems a bit different (photo)
Side Story #2:
This lens, although quite fast with f/2.8, is definitely not for (very) low light.
It was dark, and I can only get 1/15″ with ISO 2000.
I don’t think my 35mm f/1.8 would be better, though. Although it’s about 1-stop faster, but I would also need faster shutter speed to avoid camera shake due to longer focal length — and not to mention smaller DoF.
BTW, the grainy look is not entirely the camera’s fault. I think it gets grainier due to post-processing. But, I kinda like it :D.
