The Great Touhoku Earthquake not only effected the homes in the Touhoku area but also many photoshoot locations in Yokohama as well and Rinkou Park was one of them. Because this park was built upon a reclaimed land, it suffered massive liquefaction and had been closed off for nearly 2 months. Some part of the park is still off limits to visitors and Zouno-hana, known widely among DD photographers for it’s monolith illumination, was unfortunately turned off to save electricity.Weather there was also very gusty just like last time which as you can imagine can suck when taking photos at night. And yes, there were people there too….
Twas only till later that me and Iris-san found out about all this but we went ahead and did the photoshoot anyways. It was the last day of the Golden Week after-all, and there were still plenty of spaces we could take pics of our daughters.
Only Aura this time because I needed space for the tripod and my Volks bag wouldn’t fit the two girls plus a tripod (‘A`)
