Come on Irene: Showcase of Storm Photography
In light of the latest events of Hurricane Irene, here's a special showcase of storm photography to get your blood flowing
Photos are everywhere – on newsstands, commercial ads, our Smartphones and the web. Although we are highly equipped to take a picture, we have also grown used to the visual medium and are no longer easily stirred by images. We haven’t, however, gotten used to representations of life-altering situations. In fact, we’re fascinated by them. A heavy storm is a grand natural phenomena, reminding us of the scope of our world and our own fragility.
In light of the latest events of Hurricane Irene and for those of you who like photography, we put together a showcase of photos that depict storms before, during and after. Enjoy the thrill!
