We are sorry. We were posting about the environmental tragedy of the Fukushima nuclear reactors in Japan for some time, and then things came up, and we thought Japan was onto things quicker in regards to cleanup as they suggested (We recollect the cold shut down was to commence no later than 2012). We and Tepco were wrong.
We are back. Never in our lives did we think we would ever be posting on our blog about abandoned places, people and ultimately about our potentially abandoned earth in the future.
But as explorers of the abandoned, we explore everything, sometimes by leaving only foot prints behind, and sometimes in our arm chairs looking onto events we cannot control, about complete abandoned civilizations as per 'Ecocide'.
At the root of all abandoned phenomenon, as we have believed right from the start, is the abandonment of our civilization, history and common sense. We have abandoned ourselves and one another, as depicted in the history of all abandoned places and people on this planet, including the ultimate extinction of so many great civilizations before ours, all overcome by various outcomes of ecocide.
Photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again.-Henri Cartier-Bresson-
