my name up in lights

Fukushima anniversary

Imagery of abandoned locations in Japan has been appearing in the media lately.  This is the third 2nd anniversary of the Fukushima/Tsunami disaster.  Whatever it is we bring to abandonment always remember the human reality behind what you are looking at.  ...that's what such images say to me.  For a slide show on The Guardian site click here.

A really nice source of abandoned place imagery is Wikimedia Commons.  If you do key word searches there on "abandoned" followed by pretty much anything else you will get good results.  A lot of the images are free of copyright and royalty issues as well, provided you attribute them properly.  Nice place to browse.  That's an example of what you might find above, an abandoned building in Finland by Mikko J. Putkonen.

Stay safe.
