day +1193

I have spent most of the day working on grad school applications. During the past two weeks, I've made a lot of progress in this department about which I'm quite pleased. Nevertheless, before I dive into my French homework due Tuesday and start to grade papers, I thought I'd share some photographs.

The rising tensions between North and South Korea have been a major story in the news this week. While in South Korea this summer, I went on a USO tour of the heavily fortified Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) which separates the two Koreas. It's a pretty surreal place. I snapped these while there.

Finally, after work on Wednesday I took the train to Inwood Hill Park, one of my favorite places in New York City to photograph, to use my D700 again. The Henry Hudson Bridge is in the background.
