Photographs immortalize many great things – people, animals, big events, ceremonies, surprising moments, inanimate objects, food, flowers, mountains, and just about everything else. Thanks to technology we are able to capture moments and things that matter; we are able to seize the perfect time; and record those seemingly unreal occurrences. Through photos we are able to see and experience the world.

In August, India celebrates the birth of the Hindu god Krishna through a festival called Krishna Janmashtami. Included in the festivities is the dahi handi. In this festival, young people form pyramids in an attempt to get hold of an earthen pot tied way up; and then break it. The pot usually contains curd. This is in commemoration of young god Krishna stealing butter.
Regan, North Dakota
Regan is not really a tornado area, but nature somehow finds a way, and hits the place. Captured in this photo is a slow weakening tornado that looks like a tube connected to the gloomy sky above. It’s a disaster, but this immortalized photo would remind us how beautiful and terrible nature could be at the same time.
