Floods and devastation

Do the floods, torrential rain and hurricane winds not exist in ePHOTOzineland? I'm possibly blind but I have not seen a mention of it in the forums, nor photographs. Is it that I'm not looking closely enough or is everyone hiding their heads in sandbags?

Terrible for the folks affected. Last thing on their minds is taking photographs i would imagine.

Absolutely right Wink

The other thing that crossed my mind was running around taking images of other peoples misery, Sure the press will do that in abundance, But I'm not sure all those flooded out would be very impressed, Let's face it, If your down in the thick of it, Up to your neck in dirty water, You want all hands on deck doing something really positive, Not taking snaps, That and be honest one flooded house looks like any other, Unless it happens to be yours Sad

We have lakes where there was once green meadowland, The other half has taken few snaps of them, We are not in immediate danger of flooding at this time, But I sure hope it stops raining and blowing real soon....

Locals didn't really mind the press being there taking photos, I had one person say I should grab a sandbag, but mostly in jest. They did mention from time to time that they were fed up with the BBC though! The farm I photographed did have a fair few sightseers stopping and taking photos. In fact while I was there cars were stopping and people walking down to the farm taking photos. I was on the road with a 400mm lens. The farmer came out to see me and invited me down to the farm where we chatted for a while and I took a few photos wished them well and left.

Something Positive

We've had a fair bit of flooding here in Finistère - but where I live has been spared so far. Sand-bags have been put out to protect places by the harbour, but I don't think there's been flooding of any premises, thankfully, and the danger period of high tide is now past (for a while, anyway). There have been some pretty impressive photos of flooding at Quimperle, Landernau and Chateaulin on the news on my ISPs site - water in the streets with lights reflecting on it can make quite a good photo - but it must be really horrible experience and there doesn't appear to be any let-up.
