The coast guard stands watch in NY harbor as Hurricane Sandy approaches
Fall-ing leaves… a lot fell in the first few hours as the winds picked up
It was nowhere as quiet as the picture! Lashing winds and rain at 60-100 mph
The river rushes in… slowly!
Well, to be fair, the name of this street is River Drive after all !
Inside the apartment complex – as the water started to rise
… and continued to rise…
… and then on into the lobby – and evacuation of the first floor
The leaves of fall – again
Cars slowly vanished into the swirling waters
Lake front property.
A disturbing darkness sets in as the street lights lose power first…
The darkness spreads as the storm rages on
The whole of downtown Manhattan went dark – in a half hour time frame… it was really weird to watch
… at every turn
And debris… this board was from none of the nearby building. Impaled onto a blunt tipped railing! Wouldn’t have wanted to be in the path of that
A flooded store… after the waters receded
Downtown Manhattan… day after the storm. Still largely dark
One beacon of light
And a few more
Three days later… the moon lends a hand in trying to light up the NY skyline! Still some ways to go…
The street lights come back on around home. Who knew normal could feel so good!

Very well narrated
Great pictures. tells the story of the hurricane
A photograph speaks a thousand words…lovely capture of the effects of the storm and how nature heals itself…specially loved the way you use light and shadow…the deft handling of light…the way the photos gleam as if sketched by Caravaggio :)
