Photographer's Note

These are the tombstones that have been used by the Bataks on Samosir Island, Sumatra for ages.
I uploaded this picture inhonour of all those people who lost their lives, but also in honour of those people who lost their beloved, and their homes, and their income.
I would like to look upon it as a symbol for those who will be namelessly buried in a mass grave.

Samosir island is in the north of Sumatra, and more in the middle in the East-west direction. It is in the middle of Lake Toba. They will not have noticed the Tsunami, as it is about a 150 kilometers from the coast, but they must have been hit by the eartquake. It took place immediately to the west of Samosir Island.

I do not expect you to rate this picture, as it is in honour of all those people in the SE Asia region, and the African coast.
