Springtime in Yeosu

Oops, it’s been awhile since I posted; time flies when you’re having fun (or are very busy or spending too much time watching your favorite baseball team). Spring, though it took it’s time getting here, has arrived in all its splendor. The cherry blossoms, azaleas, camellias, and magnolias are all in full bloom, so, in places, the campus and Yeosu are a riot of colors. Here’s a few shots taken on campus.

This one’s along the main road up to the university.

Here’s another along the main road. I thought the mirror showing oncoming cars what’s around the corner of the road made for an interesting shot. I had to stand in the middle of the road to get the photo–luckily, it was early in the morning and not too many vehicles were out. Right around this time, there were large numbers of people walking around campus (and stopping their cars and standing in the road to take photos), enjoying all the blossoms. The campus really is quite beautiful this time of year.

Some azaleas in bloom and a few camellias in the one after.

We had a pretty foggy morning a while back. Here a few azaleas struggle to pierce the mist along the walkway to the top of the hill on which the main campus is located, a walk I have to take a couple of times a day.

At the top, the admin building with its garish neon sign looms sinisterly, like a castle. What goes on behind those walls? Actually, I’ve met a few of the university VIPs and they’re very nice folks. The neon sign, muted by the fog, throws quite a bit of light on our apartments. I’ve heard more than one person complain about the difficulty of sleeping at night unless their curtains are closed. Doesn’t bother me, though–makes for a nice night light.

Ok, that’s probably more than enough photos. I’ll add these and a few more to the Photo Gallery, so take a look when you get a chance. I’ll leave you with one more, though.
