This photo was taken on July 9, 2010 using a panasonic dmc-gf1 using a canon fd 50mm f3.5 macro lens via an adapter. Macro is something I do when I feel uninspired. It really gets me through photographic slumps. The gf1 has really impressed me with its picture quality. It is nowhere near my nikon d700 but for a take everywhere camera it is awesome. This shot was taken in insadong and is a little bit of a good luck charm for me. The chinese characters mean success and that is what I am hoping for to get into a masters program.
