  • This was one of many many photos that I took while touring tsunami affected areas of Japan. Cleaning efforts are in full force with thousand of volunteers from all over Japan and abroad. Whole communities have been flattened to just the foundations of buildings. Cars, boats, and even buses are left stranded.

    How would you feel to see a bus left on top of a building like this? The forces of nature are not to be questioned, and neither is the force of humanity. We will rebuild.
