In this first of three Big Picture posts on the anniversary of the Japan earthquake-tsunami-nuclear disaster, we have a series of paired “then and now” pictures, with the first image taken recently paired with a picture from the same vantage point taken during or in the immediate aftermath of the tragedy.
Pictured: This pair of pictures shows a bridge in the city of Ishinomaki in Miyagi prefecture, Japan as it looked on January 13, 2012 and as it looked covered with debris from the tsunami on March 15, 2011. (Kim Jae-Hwan/AFP/Getty Images) and (Toru Yamanaka/AFP/Getty Images)
