Sunday Stills, the next challenge: The letter C

C for Cyclone- Cyclone Hudhud

Deadly Tropical Cyclone Hudhud Strikes India on October 12

Hudhud was the equivalent of a strong Category 3 hurricane with winds sustained at 200 kph (125 mph) before making landfall on Sunday morning near Visakhapatnam.

Hudhud caused extensive damage to the city of Visakhapatnam and the neighboring districts .

Visakhapatnam is now bereaved of its greenery. 80% trees are uprooted except coconut and palm trees . We were confined to our flat for six days without electricity and drinking water. I could not go out and take pictures as lift was not working.

Now Visakhapatnam does not looks like  the photos i have posted before of lush green city and Vuda park.  Its impact was more drastic on the lives of the poor, the slum dwellers and fishing villages along the coast.

Mountain out of …

Living under constant threat of terrorism makes one skeptical of even small things.

When people saw this thing lying on the footpath they started all sorts of speculation from a safe distance. Everyone had his own idea about what it could be.

As soon as someone mentioned bomb, everyone started to run. Someone called the bomb squad. Suddenly a man came cycling fast, picked it. Tying it to the cycle carrier muttered, ‘ drop dare to drop again, I’m already late for work.’

Someone caught him. ‘You can’t leave before telling what this is?’

‘My mop, what else? ‘Said he.

Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Photo Challenge: Nature

 

Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more.
~George Gordon, Lord Byron, Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage

Weekly Photo Challenge- Nighttime- It’s trickier to take pictures at night, but the rewards are well worth it.

My small phone camera does not allow night photography; thanks to bright street lights I was able to take few pictures.
