Indian Ocean tsunami on December 2004 - killing over people in 14 countries. The picture creates shock and awe at the same time. Look at the size of the wave in the upper right of the photo, compared to the high rise buildings.
tsunami in 2004 in Thailand + 12 other countries, over people died + never found. How very small/powerless man is! This is bloody scary, is this a real unphotoshopped picture - how bloody high is that wave?
The Nozomi Project restores a means of livelihood to women in areas of Japan still reeling from the tsunami. They make and sell gorgeous jewelry from pieces of broken pottery left behind by the disaster. Nozomi means 'hope.' What a beautiful thing.
