Saying Goodbye with a Buddy Shoot at Songdo Park

The time has come to say goodbye to my army battle buddy and photography enthusiast, Lorraine. As is always the case here in Korea, we soldiers will receive orders to report to a new duty station, usually after a one year tour. Lorraine will catch a plane back to the States where, after a well-deserved vacation, she'll report to Fort Bragg, North Carolina. What better way to say goodbye than with a fun, evening buddy shoot? Only one location came to mind, Songdo Park, Incheon.

After a more than filling pizza and nachos dinner (these nachos were topped with chili beans, mustard and relish, what's up with that?) we walked across the street to the park to shoot some photos of the incredible architecture and reflections on the lake but mother nature was not on our side. A thick fog rolled in and obscured the bright lights on all the buildings, which was the whole reason for going there. We made the best of it and fired off a few shots while sipping on beer and soju. And even though the photos didn't turn out the best, we each captured a few good ones and had a great time saying our goodbyes!

Good luck Lorraine, we'll miss you around here and hopefully we'll meet again soon. I'll leave you with happy memories of good times, fun photography outings and this suitable quote...

"Don't be dismayed at goodbyes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after moments or lifetimes, is certain for those who are friends." - Richard Bach (American novelist)

Bye Lorraine!
