Nak San Sa Door • Sul Ak San, Korea

Peter Kun Frary | Photographer

Nak San Sa is near Sul Ak San and is filled with beautiful temples. This image is a detail from an exterior temple door. I was not allowed to photograph inside the temple (someone yelled at me when I tried).

In Korea, photographers don't enjoy the same freedoms and rights as the West. Security guards threw me out of a computer expo at a Seoul university for simply carrying a camera. It was not a photogenic place and I had no intentions of even taking pictures! With all the "borrowing" Samsung has done with the iPhone and iPad they must be paranoid American spies would relailate and steal Korean trade secrets.
