Toy Camera

While I was walking around in Chungmuro with John, we found this random toy camera shop called Toy Camera. Since the store is off the main street and also on the third floor on a rustic building, it might not be easy to locate if you don’t try hard enough, however, you’re good to go as soon as you see this door with a Lomo sign.

I’ve had a few toy cameras around but never had one I got super excited about. Diana+ was close enough but I never got to learn how to take decent shots with it. Then I thought I would give a try to Holga GCFN, the one with a glass lens unlike most of the toy cameras with plastic lenses. I was quite excited when I learned this shop had it, and had to go back to get one a few weeks later.

This shop has an extensive list of toy cameras as well as some nice films at good prices. If you’re into photography and look for some toys to play with, go to Chungmuro and check out this store. Definitely worth a try. The marketing manager of this shop, Justin, is a friendly guy and he speaks fairly good English as well so you will be fine even if you don’t speak Korean.

The address is 3F, 58-2, Chungmuro 3-ga, Jung-gu, Seoul and the phone number is +82(2)2285.5640.

MMMG Cafe & Store

While John was visiting Seoul, we visited quite a few of those cute coffee shops in town as we both enjoy nice and relaxing time at those little places with some coffee and chat. 10×10 that I blogged about a while ago is one that is run by a local design/ stationary company and this coffee shop that I’m going to post some photos of also is run by another design/ stationary store in Korea. I love their products and so does John. So here are some photos from MMMG coffee shop, I know you want to visit there already!

iPad Wallpapers

I picked up an iPad a few days ago and I’ve been enjoying the amazing screen quality of this device. The main purpose of me getting an iPad was that, as I do more of freelance work nowadays, I thought it would be a great way to present my design and photography work to clients. Whatever they did to the screen of this device, it makes things look hundreds and thousands times better.

Anyway, I found sometime today to make some wallpapers for the iPad with some minimal photos I took in the past and wanted to share with you whoever out there want to have some decent wallpapers for your iPad. My boyfriend has been making wallpapers for desktops, laptops, iPhones, and iPads and sharing them on his website forever and built up his reputation for it. I thought I would make some to share as well while I enjoy looking at my photos on the iPad and hope you would enjoy as well.

These are more of thumbnails for you to see and if you want to download to use on your iPad, click here.
