Photographer's Note

The a-bomb dome. Once an office building, now a monument to mankinds stupidity.
Seeing this place was not quite what I had expected, as I stood there and photographed the dome. A woman asked to be my guide. She was the daughter of 2 of the people who survived the bombing. The things she told me, eye witness acounts and so on are things I've never been able to read anywhere.

So if you visit Hiroshima, and a person asks to be your guide. Please say: Yes, please. For you might learn more in 10 minutes talking to them, than you would in a lifetime studying the incident at a university.

No points or smileys, please. This photo is dedicated to the people of Hiroshima. The survivors and the people who rebuildt the city.
