Pyongyang looks like a 90s anime city.

Contrast and cloudy weather really makes a difference...
You'd almost expect the sky to be red.

Ryugyong Hotel photos



I am the photographer who took the sinister photos last month. Here is another one I took from the Juche Tower. I have been photographing the Ryugyong since 2008.
That day it was cloudy and I was near the base of the hotel and I decided to do an HDR effect with the clouds.
I have been lucky to go annually and see the hotel in different conditions. I am trying to arrange to get inside. A friend of mine took the interior shots seen some years ago.

This is another HDR shot that is mine.



I also took the photos of the models of the hotel at the Three Revolutions Exhibition.



It is a fascinating place and I want a tour. If they open the top of the hotel we will have some great views. This is a view of the observation area on the top taken last month.

Interior shots are like the holy grail for this building.... I hope they'll let you in!

I love it from angles like the one ThatOneGuy quoted above.

From different angles, like in post #5393, I have the same issue with it that I have with the Oriental Pearl Tower in Shanghai, that due to the three-legged design, the top floors look off-center from some angles, just like the OPT spheres.
