WireDog's photos: Korea - Rice Paddy tractor and family, 1995


I snapped this with a Nikkormat 35mm film SLR while walking down a street in Tongdukchong, Korea. It was a beautiful Saturday morning. When this family came down the street I was prepared for the shot.

The lighting is fascinating because the sun is on the far side of the subject as can be seen by the location of the shadows. By luck, it reflected off a large window behind me creating fill lighting on the family.

These unusual tractors are common in Asia. We soldiers called them "Rice Paddy Assault Vehicles".
