In more ways than one. This is the final day of the Expo–so sad. 🙁
I’ll be going out to the site in just a short while. I’ll walk around and visit all my favorite pavilions and say goodbye to the many friends I’ve made. I’ll take in the Big Ocean Show, one of my favorite parts of the Expo, and I’ll try to get some shots of the closing ceremony fireworks. (I’ll assume there will be some.) I doubt I’ll be able to get anywhere near the closing festivities themselves; I expect half of Korea will be trying to get there, and I’m sure the Big O amphitheater will be packed hours before the show begins.
Even after all is said and done, I’ll continue to post photos of the Expo on the blog. In the meantime, I find that the Expo is most beautiful at night, so here are a few night photos that I’ve taken over the past three months. I have many more, so I’ll get some of those up in the next few days.
Please check back for more Expo photos and, even, some videos of some of the performances.
Here’s a shot I took of the Expo from the same position I took the sunset shot, across the bay on Odong Island.
There are a couple of tour boats that you can take to get a view of the Expo from the sea. This one’s the Mir.
The fountains around the site are especially beautiful at night.
Here’s a view of the Theme Pavilion.
And the Main Gate
The Angola Pavilion at night.
Some of the infrastructure at the International Pavilion building.
The Korea Pavilion
As I wrote earlier, I have quite a number of these night shots that I’ll put up in the next few days, so if you like these, check back for more later.
