日本地震

My thoughts are with you Japan.

Thank you to everyone who asked me about my friends in Tokyo – I really appreciate the thought. I’ve talked to Nozomi and she’s doing fine; she was stressed about not being able to contact her family for a while but they’ve since gotten in touch. I hope that the rest of my friends – and all of your friends and loved ones – are also safe. It’s terrifying to look at the photos and videos of the tsunami unfolding and hear about the threat of nuclear power plant meltdowns. It’s also amazing and inspiring to see the way people rally around the world to help each other in times of crisis like this. Here are a few ways you can help:

  1. i feel really sad and helpless when reading and hearing the news. my thoughts are also in Japan <3

  2. I’m glad that you got in touch with your friend. It’s a really scary situation but I’m optimistic that Japan will pull through these tough times.

  3. Great pictures, especially picture number 3!
    My heart goes out to people who have been affected by such a terrible tragedy in Japan.
    I am glad that you managed to speak with your friend :)

  4. I’m glad your friends in Japan are okay. It’s so terrifying, reading the news, looking at the photos. I can’t even bear to watch videos. It’s just too heartbreaking. And Hollywood makes all these disaster movies and you’d think we’d be prone to real life disasters. No. They’re worse. Way worse. It’s so devastating to see such destruction. I hope everyone will work together to help them rebuild and recover.

  5. P.S. Tonight I was reading 11,002 things to be miserable about. I should add the Sendai Earthquake 2011 to the list. Sad face. But other than that, I miss you pretty lady!

  6. Good to see a post from you, Allison, but it is very unfortunate about Japan. Glad your friends are okay, though. In other news, I love this set of pics. Very precious! How do you get such great shots of people w/ out making them feel uncomfortable?? You’re so good at that.

    • Haha I think most of the time they do feel uncomfortable! It is hard to take pictures of people though so I don’t do it often other than the few regulars you see on here all the time :) We should both work on that!

  7. Glad to hear that your friend is ok! I bet it’s so nerve wracking to be in that situation without a way to contact family and loved ones. I continue to send my thoughts and prayers to the people of Japan.

  8. Love your photo tribute Allison. My heart breaks for everyone in Japan; my friends and family are OK but I worry about them because of the fires at the plants. Watching the tsunami attack the town on TV was surreal; watching the people of my beloved Japan come together and remain the calm, polite people they’ve always been makes me so proud.

  9. I’ve talked with some friends i have there and luckily they’re ok but i’m all the time looking at the news and it’s terrible.

  10. Some cool shots there, I really like the one of the people sitting on the edge of the mountain.
