Today marks the second anniversary of the devastating earthquake and subsequent tsunami that struck eastern Japan. These were taken in Rikuzentakata and Kesennuma, both badly affected coastal communities in Tohoku, some three weeks after the disaster.

I recently discovered Ilford MGFB Warmtone, a beautiful paper that split tones wonderfully. I’m now a convert (and Ilford/Harman needs all the support it can get). As always, click on images to enlarge.

NB- Feeling a bit nostalgic today, so I thought I’d add the blog that Charlie, James, Steve and I kept during our five trips to Tohoku after the quake.
