Sendai Gas

Click comic to ENLARGE.

I was up in Sendai three days after the devastating earthquake and tsunami of March 11, 2011, and shot these photographs not far from the Wakabayashi District, which was devastated by the tsunami. We stopped at this station to shoot some pictures, then continued in to Wakabayashi. When we returned, several hours later, the station had run out of gas and was closed for the day.

The man in the third and fourth panels was the station manager; the kid sitting on the ground with the battery-powered drill was indeed the most junior man, if you don't include the little girl (second panel) who was manning the cash drawer (and solar-powered calculator).
