I've never seen anything quite like this, both moving and resilient. It really is frighteningly beautiful and so well done. Thanks for sharing this. I have goose bumps.

It is also a reminder that humankind continues on...even in the toughest of times.

I doubt that he could do this type of photography in the US. We keep tearing down and rebuilding every thirty years.
