Interior, Pagye Temple, 1954
« on: June 20, 2018, 10:12:34 AM »

Pagyesa, or Pagye Temple, is a Buddhist temple in Palgongsan mountain park, near Daegu, South Korea. The temple was first built in 804 by a priest named Simji, and was restored and expanded in the 17th century.

I made several shots here in 1954. This one is street. I didn't know it at the time.

Must have been Kodachrome. I shot a lot of Ektachrome because I could process it locally, but the Ektachromes have faded to nothing. Like this one.

Hi Frank, I suspect so, but I couldn't very well look inside them, and I don't speak Korean, so I can't be sure. Sometimes the smell tips you off. Not this time as I recall. Of course, that was 64 years ago.

I wonder if it looks the same as it did in 1954.
