While looking for photos for the 'Clarity' i found this shot I took while visiting friends in Japan.It suddenly came to me the national diet of Japan is rice and it needs alot of water.The field is almost flooded for the rice to grow.It does not drown in this pool of water,it is strong and as the photo shows it bends under the weight of the water but does not break.To me this is Japan.In the face of adversity they bend but do not break and remain strong.The symbol Of Japan
