Going to ruin
In both Nagasaki and Hiroshima there are famous relics that survived the atomic bombings on display in the museums of each town. But out in the street there are others: Hiroshima has it`s famous A-bomb Dome but Nagasaki has it`s one-legged Torii at Sanno Shrine. Less well known for sure and, though curious and interesting, not as spectacular or poignant as the dome. But then again after a nuclear inferno there isn`t exactly a lot left to make a memorial from is there.
Most powerful photo I`ve seen of the bombing and the wrongs of militarization of a population is the one here.
Read the story in the photographer`s own words here and try to not cry at the cruelty of war.
