Strong image CM of this ruined house. The bent frame contrasts so much against the chair which seems in its place as if nothing had happened. It really shows the randomness and power of this tragic event. "V"

Wow, amazing it is still there! That sure was one of the great catastrophies that occured ... sofar. That story is not finished yet ... all the stuff that was swept away from the tsunami and floated away, frigidaires, furnitures, name it it's in there ... has formed a gigantic mass in the Pacific ocean, and it is slowly drifting away towards the shores of North America. Eventually, North America will get the second wave of that stunami ... the debris.

Excellent documentary shot,CM. If I had seen this out of context, I would have thought it was taken in the US after a tornado or something. ~V~
