Japan Earthquake

INDEPENDENT (Sunday)

As already everyone knows, huge earthquake and Tsunami hit in north east Japan.
There was a huge blast at Fukushima Nuclear power plant about 3/4 hours ago, they announced it wasn't caused from melt down of the plant. The plant itself is still safe. The radiation level is decreasing from the accident.
This is still beginning of the disaster, there will be more problems and more people needs help.
I was at Great Hanshin earthquake in 1995, many people from outside and inside helped us a lot.
Please follow the correct news and keep calm and please help each other.

皆さんもご存知の通り、東北沖で日本最大の地震、それによる大津波がありました。
およそ3、4時間ほど前に福島原発第1発 電所で大きな爆発がありましたが、先ほどその爆発はメルトダウンによるものではないとの発表がありました。そしてこの爆発による格納容器は破損されておらず、周辺の放 射線の数値も事故前よりも、事故後下がり始めているということです。周囲の壁面のたてやのみが飛んだという報告でした。
ただ、地震や津波の被害もまだ始まったに過ぎません。これからも多くの問題や援助を必要とする人達がいます。
多くのデマや正しい情報が流れていないとの情報もあります。
私も阪神淡路大震災に遭っています、その時に市外や市内の人達に助けてもらいました。
正しい情報にしたがって慎重に行動をとって、お互いに助け合って下さい。

Back from Paris

just got back from Paris. I'll post some images from there later, but tell you something fantastic that happened to me.

On the first day of Paris, I lost my light meter in a taxi, I was devastated. Then few days later, I was outside Palais de Tokyo, taking some photo's of people coming to COSTUME NATIONAL show. Just before I was about to finish and move on to the next show, a taxi driver came up to me and asked "you, taxi?". I thought he was asking whether I need a taxi so I said "oui!" I really needed a taxi, but then he says "my client found a little camera, I'll show you..." he went to his car and handed me my light meter! He said he always work for same client at PFW driving around the client from show to show all week, after he dropped us off at a venue, his client found my light meter and he has been looking for a guy with a green fedora for 3 days, and finally he found me!

I was so glad and so happy not depressed any more!!
Thank you Paris!! Merci beaucoup, monsieur!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
