Day and Dusk along Han River
yes...along Han River on our way to Coex to see Rio 2. We had a 5 pm show which meant only one thing: we got to leave home 1.5 hour earlier. 'Tis a beautiful day with bright sunshine along the way. As we're driving along the Han River, I couldn't help (like always) but taking my camera out and 'immortalize' the moment. Far beyond the under-construction Lotte Tower (would-be the tallest building --hence dubbed the tallest skyscraper of Seoul) is visible.
Coex signage is visible which meant only one thing (again), it's time to cross the bridge and reach the Southern bank of the river (Gangnam area).
In less than 5 minutes, we're approaching the main street of Gangnam (could be mistaken though) where the Coex and WTC were located--the place we're heading to).
Since it's 퇴근시간 (gee what is it in English...:( !! ) anyway...we're stuck in a traffic. But, wait..it's Saturday and no one's working or supposed to be working..so it meant only one thing...people do flock to this area considering its fame.
We just finished watching the movie and since dusk was approaching,we rushed ourselves to get back home. And..snap!! The sunset over Seoul Tower (beyond) was breathtaking in reality...but...*ginger* ..^^ my camera could not do justice to the beauty of that Saturday evening.
another view...not so proud to be shared..but posted it here anyway.
Then,we're heading towards the lanes leading to the intersection that would take us home...with (again and again) the landmark of Seoul--The Seoul Tower--in its background.
The twilight set in.
Nothing so eerily beautiful like this. I mean..for a vampire* like me (?) whose main transportation is (underground+dark) subway....having a chance to snap a picture of twilight like this....was of course..a moment not to be missed.
A sight to behold. (at least for me....for a vampire* like me).
Hmm...okay. It's nice to change the way I see Seoul like this one.
*vampire: I consider myself as a vampire since I almost never see daylight on my daily routines due (thanks) to Seoul subway.^^
