The doors throughout South Korea are beautiful. In my spare time I would walk through hidden back alleys searching for different ones to photograph. ( I have put a selection on pinterest here.)
This one was not far from the first place I was staying near Haengdang in Seoul. I would always see a little elderly Korean women along my way who would be as equally happy to see me each time. She couldn't speak a word of english and my Korean doesn't go far past general greetings and odd words but, we seemed to communicate somehow.
The white crane is said to symbolise spirituality and longevity, the deer with its beautiful appearance and mild temper, friendship and longevity and the pine trees also longevity.
"Feathers are snow white but it could not be tainted with even mud. Males and females meet in 160 years, and as soon as they look into each other's eyes, they create a baby. They just drink for 1600 years but not eat. It is a king of birds and a wizard-like unworldly man rides on it."
"As a red-crested white crane lives thousands of years, a pine tree does 10 thousand of years"
