View from my window

모처럼 오전에 시간이 나서 스케치를 나갈까 집안 대청소를 할까 고민하다가 먼저 청소를 했습니다. 집안일을 끝내고 나니 한낮의 따가운 햇살에 밖에 나갈 엄두가 나지 않아 창 밖을 내다보며 잠깐 바깥 풍경을 그려보았습니다.
제가 사는 곳은 지은 지 30년이 넘은 아파트라 주차장이 좁아 언제나 차들로 가득합니다. 그렇지만 오래 된 키 큰 나무들이 숲을 이루고 있기도 하지요.

On a walk

Changgyeonggung Palace was a symbol of the Joseon Dynasty, but it lost its supreme status as a royal palace through ' planned destruction' by the Japanese. In 1907, the Japanese began removing most of the palace structures and built a zoo and botanical garden in their place. They also laid a road between the main part of Changgyeonggung and Jongmyo Shrine to sever the symbolic link between them. The Korean government removed the zoo in 1983 and is slowly restoring the palace to its original state.

On the way home I found out this amusing building on the opposite side of Changgyeonggung.
The exterior of the building is made of doors.
