Busan Metro Stations

Very cheerful and colorful — dominated with orange.

Not like the stations in Tokyo, which are normally calm with subtle colors.

Side Story:

During the travel in South Korea, I notice a lot of signs mentioning about CCTV in operation.

That includes stations, malls, markets, stores — basically all public spaces, in every 5 meters (okay, I’m exaggerating, but you know what I mean).

I don’t know why, but it gives unsettled feeling for me.

I feel like I’ve been constantly reminded that there are a lot of bad people around you, and these CCTV cameras are there to record them.

I don’t like the feeling (wait a minute, I’m not a bad guy!?!)

Probably, the purpose of the signs are to make people feel safe — to ensure the safety of the public

I, however, feel exactly the opposite.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind the CCTV. In some way, I think it’s very good.

I just don’t like the constant reminder.

    • I don’t mind being watched; I don’t like the constant reminder.

  2. I understand what you mean about the constant signs…It can get quite unsettling after a while. Still, another great couple of shots. I love undergrounds and stations, I find them really photogenic.
