If you have been following the news (such as it is) you'll know there was a second quake within the last 12 hours. Of lower magnitude, and I haven't heard back from all the team on the ground yet. Communication lines are mostly out, net access is sporadic at best.
Meeting with OGA team leader Angela Ortiz (L). Ana Shimabuku (centre) takes notes and helpfully blocks the glare from the rising sun, as Charles Pringle (R), author of the Wordpress piece above, listens to the summary of the situation.

The situation in Japan is hell on earth. There was a 7.1 magnitude aftershock in the Sendai area which is causing ever more misery and damaged Nikon's factory. If you thought things were bad before....
Next time you stub your toe, or the dentist says you need a new crown, just remember how lucky you are to not be trapped in that mess.
On a lighter note, Wayne, how are you liking the muggy afternoon we have today?
Thanks folks. I was fortunate enough to be able to get back to Miyagi-ken a few days ago. Shooting for OGA (the aid organisation), and 57 in Roppongi, who are doing a sterling job of holding fund-raising events.
Accompanied one of the teams on a delivery to a couple of outlying refuges, and shot some lit stuff with the team leader, who is a thoroughly charming lady.
