The river

2 comments

Take a subject you’re familiar with and imagine it as three photos in a sequence. Tackle the subject by describing those three shots.

It’s raining non stop in my city since last Friday and we have floods. We can’t enjoy sights of the river as we used to, with fishermen on the banks waiting patiently to catch something with their fishing rods.

Now the water reaches to the buildings and the riverbanks have disappeared. Many cars have been dragged or ruined by the waters. The current is so strong  and dangerous that ,of course, no one ventures kayaking or canoeing.

The old abandoned building that is falling down in ruins by the river is now covered by the waters. And the forecast says that it will continue raining at least till next Wednesday.

The rains coincide with the thaw so we are in high alert. Many inhabited buildings are in danger to get flooded.

Three Perfect Shots.

    • Where I live there is no danger. I’m in the old quarter built at the top of a hill and protected by very high stone walls. The situation is serious for the neighbourhoods built outside the walls, down, close to the river.
