Today is the Hiroshima Anniversary.

Immediately after the Bombing:

"I fought with myself for 30 minutes before I could take the first picture. After taking the first, I grew strangely calm and wanted to get closer. I took about ten steps forwards and tried to snap another, but scenes I saw were so gruesome my viewfinder clouded with tears" (The Viewfinder Clouded with Tears, written by Yoshito Matsushige).

Something about Hiroshima and Nagasaki tells that there aren't many known photographs that were taken after the bomb during the same day.
