The Friendship Bell

Bronze bell, stone pavilion, and traditional Korean architecture.. if you don't know any better, any one would think this was taken in Korea or some where within Asia.  Well.. say hello to Angel's Gate Park in San Pedro, California! The bell is call the "Korean Bell of Friendship" or "The Belfry of Friendship", presented by the Republic of Korea to US in 1976. (source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Korean_Bell_of_Friendship) Apparently this is quite a spot for photographers of all level, during the 30+mins we spent at the spot, we saw a portrait session, landscape photographers and even some amateur shooting his girlfriend on a motor bike...
