I found it quite appropriate that it rained on the day I got to see the Peace Memorial Park and Atomic Bomb Dome. I struggled a bit with how to photograph the Dome in such a way that it not look like your average, every day tourist shot. This is the best I could do (keep in mind, I was hanging out with my cousins and a couple of hungry babies, so time was limited).
Sorry for the delay folks, I was internet-less while visiting family in Hiroshima! Needless to say, they spoiled the heck out of me and made that whole portion of my trip absolutely unforgettable.
Here’s a quick shot from Itsukushima Shrine (厳島神社) on Miyajima to whet your appetite.
Cheers from Osaka!
Boston Globe’s Big Picture blog is without a doubt one of the best photo blogs out there today, and their persistence in covering the crisis in Japan is unrivaled. Take a look, what a stark contrast between a disaster here and disasters elsewhere.
