Alabama tornado damage pictures
« on: May 08, 2011, 01:28:51 AM »
Not strictly Canon related, but I wanted to post some pictures I took of a neighborhood close to me that got hit by one of the EF-5 tornadoes.  I have friends that live in the same neighborhood, but they were a little luckier than others.  I haven't been on much because the power was off for a week and I left town for a while.

As I was volunteering, I didn't really want to go in with my 7D.  Not only this, but police were patrolling constantly in tornado hit areas watching for looters and people who weren't owners or helping with relief.  So I just took these with my cell phone camera.  The captions offer some additional insight.

I also took footage from my home during the tornado and cut a video from it.  The scenes in the beginning are pretty noisy, but I had to crank it to ISO 6400 to get a decent picture:

No one will care about the noise with such a powerful footage content. It made me think a lot. Well done
