The Gyeongbokgung (Royal Palace) in Seoul has a number of different guards dressed in traditional clothing guarding the main gates.

This one, serving at the Gungseongmun or Royal gate, is unarmed and appears to be mostly involved in co-ordinating armed guards.

This is compelling stuff ~ which draws the viewer into it's intrigue and reminds me of Guy Fawkes and the Gun Powder Plot....

Daniel,
This may be the only photograph that you have posted (not why I have selected it), but I think it is a truely wonderful picture. It is extremely well composed and lit, and the soft focus works really well. A lovely shy smile on her face and the angle of the hat gives her her privacy and creats a wonderful intrigue.

Do please post some more. Lack of clicks means nothing as sometimes it takes a while for people to discover you, particularly bearing in mind that there are many thousands of photographs added daily. There are photographers on here that I have only just discovered, who have been posting for years.

So, please share some more of your work with us.

All the best,

James
