For towns on the bordering areas of the 20km exclusion zone around the Fukushima nuclear plant a debate is underway.
The government is saying that it is safe to return to a lot of these towns but residents are not so sure. Some have stayed as they feel they have no other choice if they want to save their businesses.
Two local mayors from two different towns have conflicting opinions as to what is the right thing to do.

As rush hour approaches the streets of Hong Kong, pedestrians can expect to bear witness to a familiar feeding frenzy as scores of shiny red scavengers compete for a sustenance of steady customers. With more than 18,000 taxis plying their trade to a population of over seven million, the night shift is a busy one. For driver Alan Leung, the daily five-hour stint behind the wheel takes him from skyscrapers to street-corners as he traverses the tightly-packed territory in his bright red cab.

I went on a 3 month trip to Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, and Burma! We met a ton of people and had some Great times! I got to see some beautiful things! I just wish I could have captured everything!
These are my top Time-Lapse Clips put together to the song: Islands, by Hey Ocean.
I am also working on a video of all the clips I got which will be uploaded eventually.
I used a Canon t3i for all but the one gopro time-lapse of the rafting. I didn't even have a Tripod until about 1 month into my trip! It was a BIG help to finally have!
Thanks for Watching and please share!
I was commissioned to make this video by the British Embassy in Beijing as part of a series of videos to introduce diplomats and their families to Beijing. The time-lapses were shot on the Panasonic HPX170 by me and on the Canon 7D by Janek Zdzarski zdzarski.com
The 'real-time' footage was shot in Ritan Park, central Beijing. Most of the time-lapses towards the end filmed at night were shot using the Frame Rate 'hack' on the HPX170 at 2fps with the shutter open a full 360 degrees in Film Cam mode 25PN. For another of my videos featuring this cool technique check out this behind-the-scenes promo I shot for BMW in Beijing. vimeo.com/22803391
