my heartfelt prayers go out to japan and her beautiful people.
may their mind-power withstand nuclear disaster and their experience strengthen the world-wide anti-nuclear power movement. may the sun shine on them again.
with love and compassion.

all proceeds of sales of the series below will be donated to a relief fund for the victims of the tsunami and nuclear disaster.

    I AM serious! I love blur when it’s appropriate. You’ve got the little girl’s face looking back at you amongst all the moment around her… great stuff :)))

  • thanks carol. it’s actually one of my favorite shots but i am never quite sure if it is a biased judgment or if it’s really good.
