the rebel in red

breaking all the rules.

i snapped this shot of a neighboring apartment's parking lot. you may notice that one of these is not quite like the other, to paraphrase sesame street. koreans love their cars and keep them immaculately clean- inside and out. but in a city with millions of cars, it's strange that virtually all of them are a visually banal grey, white or black. it's rare to see any bold colors, which is curious given koreans' love of fuchsia and turquoise on their bodies and on their temples. i think mr red car has a story. foreigner? artist? homo? all three? i should investigate.
