Photos by Jodi Cobb @jodicobbphoto. The Olympics are drawing to a close, but have given wonderful insights into the lives and traditions of the people of South Korea. A few years ago, I was commissioned to photograph impressions of the capital, Seoul, through all four seasons. I found a fascinating mix of enduring traditions, futuristic vision and a delightful eccentricity.
1. A model twirling in “hanbok”, the traditional, distinctive and gorgeous attire of the Korean people. Worn daily until a century ago, it’s now saved for ceremonies and celebrations.
2. Looking inside the Jogyesa Temple at a golden Buddha statue, with winter trees reflected in the glass window.
3. A businessman leaving the Gangnam subway station during morning rush hour.
4. A groundskeeper sweeping the steps of the National Museum. Decorated with images of the pyramids, the steps are a surreal trompe l’oeil [trick of the eye] and create a confusing and strange visual illusion.
5. Cars parked under holiday lights.
6. Looking through plastic windows at an ice skating rink.
For more images of Seoul and lots of other places, people, things and eccentricities all over the globe, please follow me - @jodicobbphoto.

SENIOR SUNDAY! @susiesseniordogs wants to introduce you to Forest. 8 year old Forest is one of 22 dogs who were taken in from a hoarding/animal cruelty case in the Hudson Valley, NY area last year. After a long legal battle, the dogs have finally been officially awarded freedom and the ability to find adopters. Forest is the oldest of the group, and also the most seemingly distant. But it's simply because this elder boy hasn't had the love of a good home. Undoubtedly, Forest will have the hardest chances of getting adopted and we want to help this handsome fella find his perfect person soon.
@hvhsny wrote, "We seized 22 #huskies back in May. Many of been adopted, but we still have 16 dogs who need a forever home. Forest is not as affectionate as some of the other huskies in the group. He's definitely one of my favorites and he has a lot of potential to become a loving 'best friend' kind of dog. He would be best with somebody who is patient and understanding. He isn't cuddly, but he is not aggressive; it's as if he doesn't quite realize what being pet is. I don't get the impression that he doesn't like it - it's more that he doesn't understand it.
Forest absolutely loves going outside! It’s so cute how excited he gets when he sees a leash. He seems indifferent about the other dogs at the kennel, but if a potential adopter has a dog we would have them meet each other at our facility.
Overall, he is in good health. He also had his dentistry done while he’s been here and was previously neutered." To adopt Forest, please email hvhsny@optonline.net (include "Forest" in the subject line) to request an application.
@hvhsny is located at 200 Quaker Road, Pomona, NY.

South Korean speed skater Seunghi Park (@shp92shp) has now competed in the Winter Olympics in not just one sport, but two. This year, the former short track skater — who won two gold medals in the 2014 Winter Olympics — is trying her hand at speed skating, competing in distances up to 1,000 meters. “Changing my sport took a lot of effort because the two are very different,” says Seunghi. “But I love the thrill that comes along with the speed.” Seunghi was born in Seoul and lives and trains in Hwaseong-si, a city in northwest South Korea. “The fact that the Olympics are taking place in my home country makes me feel more responsible and proud,” she says. Watch our story to see Seunghi training on the ice.

The Winter Olympics (@olympics) are taking place in Pyeongchang, South Korea, February 9-25. Tune in as we spotlight competing athletes from around the world. #Pyeongchang2018
