She is just a common girl but when she has her cosplay outfit on . THe aura around her changes . Like some magic transformation just happened .
A mix of cuteness and innocence .

Hi To all the good peoples who keep coming back to check my Photosushi . It's been a long time since my last update .
So what's happened ?
Moved to a new lovely apartment , almost brand new with a nice view of mount Hakusan .
Then i had to wait to get my internet connected , my bad . Left to order it after the move .
A couple days before the internet got connect i got sent into an assignment from the Metro Uk to photography the 100 days anniversary of Tohoku earthquake /tsunami.
As all those things wasn't enough to keep me away from my Mac , now i got my old habit running full blast back in me .
Skateboarding !! I know i am a 38 years old men , but i can't get away from my board .
So here is the whole story . Hope you all understand .
I have 1000s of new photos and always have my Nikon with me , just don't got the time to sit in front of my mac to edit and upload .
But i will do my best to post more often . Have a lot to show and share with all of you .

For today's menu . A right wing man who was part of a manifestation in Shinjuku.
He wasn't too pleased when realized that a " gaijin " just took his photo . But this gaijin here he'd a fresh shaved head , sunglasses on and all dressed in black +i had a big Nikon with a lens bigger than his arm ;)
So i got away .
That's all folks

I had a little chat with this men and asked him a few questions .
I will do my best and try to transcribe the conversation .
(me) Hi , good morning .
(old men) Good morning
(me) You guys got a pretty tough situation here . How are you doing ?
(old men) I'm ok , happy to alive but all this destruction is kind depressing (he was kind and smiling for the whole conversation)
(me) So , how did you react when the tsunami warning came ? Was it scary ?
(old men) (Laughing) Me and my wife was at the local shopping mall when we got the warning . So i didn't give much thought about . We have tsunamis warnings all the time since i was a kid .
And the warning was issued 50 minutes before the first wave . It's is a long time so i thought it was another false alarm .
(me)Good nobody was at home when the first wave came !
(old men)My son was at home !!! But luckily we have a 2 floors house and it wasn't washed away so he just run to the second floor . The first floor was up to the ceiling with water . But my son was safe .
(me) Will you rebuild the house or move to somewhere else ?
(old men) I would rebuild it but this time peoples i know died and is too much destruction around , so i think i will move to somewhere else but before that i will help make this area liveable at least .
I saw the plate on your car , did you came all the way from Ishikawa ??
(me) Yes sir i did . I had to see it for myself and i brought some stuff to give to you guys .
(old men) Thanks
(me) No worries . Please can i take a photo of you in front of your place .
(old men)(laughing) After driving all the way here , of course you can . Where you want me to stand , here is ok ?
(me ) Thanks , i hope everything turn all right for you and your family . Ganbate .
(old men) We will do our best , no doubt about it . Take care .

When i got to Miyagi i began to the see effects of the tsunami , hundreds of cars washed away by the water .
The earthquake itself didn't do much damage , some houses and buildings cracked but as far i could see none collapse because the quake .
The tsunami was the real Tohoku nemesis .
During my 2 days there i felt several aftershocks but i never paid much attention to it . But when i was by the bay and a pretty big aftershock came ( big for me anyway ) the first thing i thought was - Fuck , tsunami coming !!!!!!!
Right after the quake the alarms start ringing full blast and after the alarms a voice came from the speakers telling peoples about the quake . WTF , i felt the quake no need to tell me that , i want to know about the tsunami !!!!!!
After 3 or 4 minutes the voice is back (i am already dashing to my car ) , but all the voice has to say was - No worries , there is no tsunami alert .
I didn't know if i could believe that voice but since i was the only bitch running i guess i overreact just a bit .

The rescue teams marked all the cars they have checked for victims .
I saw one car that still have blood on the stearing wheel and dashboard and looking at the state of it i doubt the person who was inside got away but i hope he or she did.

A lot ships were washed into the roads and some even end up on the top of houses .
This one would have the same end but somehow the ropes kept it tied the dock .

The city of Shiogama in Miyagi city was hit hard by the quake and tsunami around the bay area . Not hard as the cities up North .
But anyway the destruction i saw was overwhelming .
Warehouses like this one are totally destroyed . Some were wiped out and dragged back in to the sea .

The last couple photos were about the underground culture life in Japan .
This one is a pure example of the how many faces Japan has !
Eiheji is the of the most famous zen temples in the whole world and i catch myself coming back to the place every other year .
Pictures of the monks are not allowed there , but anyone with some common sense can get a sneak photo . Just be respectful , having a camera and think of yourself as a photographer doesn't give you the right to disturb the pace and peace of the place .
If you ever get around Fukui prefecture in Japan ,stop by Eiheji .
You won't regret it .

Peace

Last saturday the guys from "Steel Body " had an event here in Kanazawa .
And of course i was there ! Built a DIY white backdrop and got all the cool kids to show up their tattoos .
I had a blast that night and a really bad hangover the next morning .
Thanks Leo and Jun to invite me over and let me do my thing and to all the cool cats that gave me a bit of their time to pose .
About the kid on the pic . I don't think he really believes that "god hate us all" coz he was smiling all the time and was nice to everyone around .
