Past Earthquakes

Paying tribute to all those affected by the devastating disasters - Los Angeles Photography

I have to admit that this is unusual for me - to post twice within a day.  Shortly after I posted with an image taken from Vietnam, the horrible news broke of the earthquake and Tsunami in Japan.  This image of cherry blossom was taken over the weekend.  I thought it's a nice tribute to all those devastated by this and all other disasters.

This disaster, as many others, reminds us how unpredictable life is and to treasure what we already have - people around us and things that we take for granted, like being able to go home every day after work.
