With the utmost respect and humility I wanted to share this collection of images of the devastation wreaked upon the East Coast by Hurricane/Superstorm Sandy.

“Clobbered” was the headline in this morning Seattle Times, referring to Sandy, the “Super Storm,” that’s pounding the northeast. I just saw images and read a figure that there may well be 20-90 billion in damages as well as continued loss of life. What a crusher. Wanted everyone who is affected over there – including your families and friends – to know that our hearts and thoughts are with you. We hope that the death toll rises no more and that any of the missing or needing rescue find help arrive speedily.

The gallery above is but a fraction of what’s out there. If there are other equally powerful images that we’ve missed, please feel free to share in the comments below.

To those not in harm’s way: If you’re reading this, have ever enjoyed content on this blog or are compelled to help, please join me in donating to the Red Cross here now. $5, $10, $1000 whatever you can give.

Huge debt of gratitude to those journalists and news organizations who are brave enough to be capturing thse images in NYC, Washington and surroundings and sharing them with the world. Thank you to the photographers who are out there enduring the risk and for raising our awareness. Your photos, video and stories are keeping us connected as the event unfolds. Without your courage and commitment the rest of us would have but the faintest of notions as to Sandy’s destructive power.

Thanks and keep holding on.

    We might moan about the weather here in the UK – but most of the time we don’t realise just how lucky we are.

    I was looking for an impressive iPhone/iPad app for editing my photographs and one of my friend had recommended me very cool app named “Photo Splash Fx”. Although I have tried many others but this one is simply wonderful, as it enables me to

    · Make my shots awesome, no matter if they are old vintage, black and white or new high resolution colorful photos, by applying a plethora of special effects.

    · Use selective colors, variety of brush sizes (adjust manually or automatically), gestures like Pan/Zoom/Splash, unlimited Undos, Colorize, Tintalize, Recolor, blend brush to create custom effects and text blending on your photo.

    · It supports both landscape or portrait mode and options like loading/importing photo from Cloud, instead of just from the camera or photo library.

    · Choice of 135+ built-in effects on different parts of the same photo and still have the option of creating your own custom effects.

    · Option to make favorite list of built-in effects to choose them easily for future.

    · Sharing my edited photographs with friends through Email, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Picassa, Dropbox or post it in form of the post card, to anywhere in the world.

To give professional touch to your photographs, now it is not necessary to consult some professional. One may use various tools and apps to make one’s photographs masterpieces instantly with a few taps, particularly those taken on graduation/wedding ceremony, honeymoon trip or New Year celebrations. I have used many such apps in recent past. One of such app is Photo Splash FX on iPhone/iPad that provides following unique features that you can’t find in any other app altogether. I noticed following notable features:

    Just found this blog and love it. As a fellow (amateur) photographer this is the kind of site that helps us all out.

    So as a fellow photographer I appreciate the work that has gone in behind the camera the take this shot (walking in the rain, protecting the camera, getting wet, being cold) to get the perfect shot.

    And as a Brit, I love the weather!
