  • The Survivor Tree The Survivor Tree

    • From: joe8211943
    • Description:

      This pear tree was crushed under the debris of 9/11. Workers freed what was left of it, with its roots snapped, broken limbs, and blackened trunk. Hardly more than a charcoal stump, it was taken to a Bronx park and lovingly nursed back to health. It was transplanted in 2010 to the memorial site, where it began to mend and grow. It’s now regarded as a symbol of hope and resurrection. In the photo it is seen in front of the One World Trade Center Building, which is still under construction.

    • Description:

       

      I took this photo in a tent city in Port au Prince, Haiti 12 days after the earthquake in February that left 300,000 dead and 1.3 million homeless.  The girl is a survivor of the earthquake living in a "tent city" made of sticks, bed sheets, and other strips of cloth along with thousands of others.

  • Nagasaki Survivor Nagasaki Survivor

    • From: galtravel
    • Description:

      I was thrilled to be able to attend the 65th Anniversary of the Nagasaki bombing in Japan recently.   This gentleman was standing directly in front of the hypocenter monument wearing a survivor button and pausing in the heat.  The emotion of the place and time and seeing survivors was palpable in the park.

  • Storm Survivor Storm Survivor

    • From: rmayeur
    • Description:

      These photos were taken in Lake Hermitage, LA, below New Orleans on the West Bank in Plaquimines Parish in July, 2010.  Head south and you will reach the Gulf of Mexico and the Great Oil Spill from BP.  It is far from being over, the clean up will take years.  The surface may seem clean upon quick inspection but the shorelines and the boat hulls say differently.  The scenery around this area is stunningly beautiful.  There is complete beauty in the lakes and bayous all around here.  Hopefully it will remain so for generations to come.  Please protect your environment whereever you are.

  • We ask for forgiveness We ask for forgiveness

    • From: kentonmain
    • Description:

      At the 65th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor Symposium "A Nation Remembers" a discourse by three Japanese Naval Aviators, Zenji Abe, Takeshi Maeda, and Jiro Yoshida was interrupted by approximately 30 other Japanese Aviators from the December 7, 1941 attack, who asked any Pearl Harbor Survivor in attendance, if they were willing, to please shake hands and give them forgiveness for what they had done.

  • Karnak Obelisk Karnak Obelisk

    • From: Buqo
    • Description:

      The Obelisk of Tuthmosis I at Karnak is the only survivor of the three obelisks originally raised by this pharoah.  The sun was in my face so I had to find a shady spot to shoot from.  Our tour group in the lower left gives you an idea of the scale of the temple and the height of the obelisk.  As a geologist, I am amazed at what the ancient Egpytians could engineer, fabricate, and transport with the tools and technology they had at the time.  Sheer genius and art combined.

  • Carnival Survivor Carnival Survivor

      Let this journal be proof that I haven´t disappeared.

      Rio de Janeiro is certainly the most environmentally blessed city I have ever seen. Lush green jungle covered hills falling dramatically into the bright blue sea, pausing briefly to make room for a perfect cookie dough sand beach. Unfortunalty it´s strengths as a landscape create weaknesses as a city. It´s impossible to navigate on foot and nearly impossible otherwise as well. The mountains and inlets create such a high demand for space that almost every colonial era building was demolished at some point to make room for hideous highrises. There´s a feeling of craziness bubbling under the surface that is summed up perfectly in the T-Shirt of an old lady on the street: ¨God Save Rio.¨ And the famous art deco Christ the Redeemer is always up there on the mountain trying his best.

      But don´t get the idea that I didn´t like it. Rio is everything it ought to be, beautiful and stifling. We swam in Ipanema and Copacabana. We took the death defying cable car up to the summit of Sugar Loaf. We stood under the Jesus statue and looked down on the intricate coastline. And of course, we survived Carnival.

      The Samba Parade lit up the Sambodromo at around 9pm and was still kicking at 5am when we packed it in. According to our own professional dancer, Pan Dudek, no actual samba took place but the music was infectious, the costumes and floats were dramatic and the energy was amazing. I found the themes to be indeciferable (what exactly do a giant baby and ET have in common?) but maybe they made sense to the judges.

      Rio, wow. I´m wiping a bead of sweat from my brow just thinking about it.
