North Korean soldiers

Pyongyang, North Korea

During my visit to North Korea, I was hoping to get some pictures of some North Korean soldiers – but my guides only frowned when I suggested the idea. However, I had a brief photo opportunity (of sorts) when I was at the Kumsusan Memorial Palace. We were standing near the gate to the Palace – which is a massive gate made of granite and copper – when three soldiers walked up to the gate and posed for a photograph being taken by another soldier. I immediately snapped a couple of wide shots – which my guides didn’t seem to mind – and from that I cropped this to make a composition focusing on the soldiers.

Nikon D100 , Nikkor AF-S 24-120/3.5-5.6G ED
