Big Ship!! Tiny Ship!!
With the news of the devastating earthquake and following tsunami in Japan, it shows how small and fragile we really are on this planet. I took this picture of this huge ship crossing underneath the Second Narrows bridge while being pushed by two tugs on the way home a few days ago. I remember thinking how huge this ship was, and how small and insignificant it made me feel. These ships are the biggest things humans can make that move, and it's quite impressive seeing it from above.
However, after watching the tsunami, and how it tossed ships similar to this like it was a piece of paper or something, we realize no matter how big or powerful a thing humans can produce, it's really nothing against the power of our natural world.......
