A big storm came.
I decided to chase storm light, rain, wind-blown stuff and to make a few pictures that might give you the sense of being there. And, yes. I was driving. And, photographing. Not to worry. You know how I do this stuff.
These pictures were taken during sort of a lull.
We had rain on Monday, a lot more on Tuesday and it broke loose at just about dusk. It was heavy, heavy sideways rain. Fast, gusty wind. I was fine. But, just about 60 miles upriver, a trailer park in the little town of Convent was destroyed by a tornado. Two people died there.
I couldn’t, and wouldn’t, go there for the immediate aftermath. But, I will go some time today. I’m not big on photographing disasters. I spent a long time doing that early in my career. Newspapers and wire services publish that stuff. I’ll try to do something more meaningful than just take pictures to document it. Or, I may think better of it. We’ll see.
These pictures are just sort of fun. Night. Dusk. Colorful light. Motion. Blur.
But, never forget. These pictures were made during part of a massive storm. A classic spring Southern storm.
