My friend Jason and I couldn't resist taking a day off to relax in Nagasaki and take photos two days after disaster struck Japan. I had to separate myself from the TV, if just for a day.

We can enjoy this beauty while thousands of people have lost loved ones and are without food and heat in the mountains.

I did get a scare when a wave came in and soaked my shoes, but it was just because a boat went by...
