Triple Dragon Hinge

Gagwonsa Buddhist Temple, South Korea

This hinge is one of many supporting the huge folding sectional wooden doors on the front entrances
to the temple's main hall. Korean doors have three hinges. The center hinge is located nearer
the top hinge to more evenly support the weight of the door. However, this uneven spacing may
allow more warping due to the greater distance between the center and bottom hinges.

Thank you for visiting my galleries and offering your kind words, Jose. Designs and Patterns has always been my favorite. Korea has many wonderful subjects that fit into this category. David.

Hello David , simply amazing compositions , I don't think how anyone could do this subject matter better than this. I have both a f707 and a f717 but you really extract maximum performance from this camera. Bravo!

best regards
