Nagasaki... finally

Finally, a trip into Nagasaki today. There`s some time for a few sketches before the church service, which starts at exactly 11:02 am with the sound of a bell in the sanctuary and a moment of silence, to remember the atomic bomb that struck the city at 11:02 am on August 9, 65 years ago. This event remains a powerful piece of history that continues to shape the spirit and psyche of its residents in a most admirable way.

More sketches from the day in Nagasaki here:
I`ve sketched this lane three times now, and not much has changed in the 10 or 11 years since the first one... not even the advertisement on the street post. I`ll have to revisit the other two...

Sketching in this city gives me a rush I rarely get to experience!
