Repeat photography shows the amazing damage and rebuilding after the March 2011 Japan earthquake and tsunami

This came floating along in the news feed in Facebook from Sue Owen, but seems so impressive it is worth a blog entry to capture it for a while:


This combo image, the initial destruction and progress of cleanup after the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami is seen in Kesennuma, Miyagi prefecture, northern Japan. The top photo, taken March 13, shows a street covered by debris burnt by a fire. The middle photo, taken June 3, 2011 shows a partial clean-up of the same street, while the bottom photo taken Sept. 1, 2011 shows the area after the debris was removed. AP / Kyodo News

Updated pages for Kite and Balloon Aerial Photography

Thanks to the hard work of Tsurue Sato, we have a newly updated set of pages for Kite and Balloon Aerial Photography.

Here is a recent photo from CAMP SESE:
