Dust, are you?

had the worst sandstorm in Kuwait. "Possibly"

 

i got stuck in the cafe i was at with my friend for 3 hours. managed to take some photos for the buildings outside and because i only had my 50mm with me, couldn't take wide photos but you can tell what was really going on by the photos in the comments..

 

the main thing is you can imagine how much dust was there just by looking at the floor and the laptop screen's photos. let alone the dust on all over the place! it was coming inside a closed place and taking a deep breath was impossible. Lungs shut down and stop you from inhaling!

 

Maybe if you go on Youtube and search for "Kuwait Sandstorm 2011" you will find how crazy it really looked!

 

i hope i managed to document a little of what was really going on. people coming in out of nowhere knocking on the door of the cafe and the whole "refugee" feel in the place and the windspeed of around 100mph.
