I participated in the office annual volunteer trip in Tohoku last weekend, and will hopefully have some photos from the trip that I'll be able to share.

One quick one though, was taken on the train platform while waiting to return to Tokyo.  

This is the Hayate E5 bullet train, and these things go fast!  We were on the platform trying to figure out which train we were going on when suddenly one of these went barreling past.  I literally didn't have time to lift my camera before it was gone.

Luckily one more came by just before our train pulled in, and I managed to get a quick shot before it vanished out of sight.

    Wow.  And I thought the deer I tried to snap a pic of last night was fast.

    I had it easier than you though +Tish Winton – at least I got a 2nd try, which I imagine isn't usually possible with wild animals 🙂
