In December of 2015, I was in North Korea. It was winter. It has been a great desire-a longing to be able to set foot on this hermit kingdom. It is one of the least visited countries in the world; and to be able to visit and tour some parts of the country, I felt so accomplished.
Due to its government's policies, and the media's vilification of this country, not a lot of people have been to this socialist state, or are even willing to go visit; which makes it fascinating, enigmatic, and mysterious. (I was the only Filipino tourist who was there during the time of visit).
So I am sharing some of my shots from my 5-day visit to North Korea, so you'll have a little glimpse of this country. I didn't have a DSLR, so iPhone and GoPro cameras were used. Nevertheless, photography is about the eye, so here we go.
Locals using their public transpo to go to work (or so I assumed). This was taken at Kim Il Sung Square. This is the place where we usually see photos and videos of the North Korean military parade.
