The Twilight Zone on Tang

My alarm woke me up the other morning at 6:30. Looking out the window, I noticed that the entire world was orange, and I said “That’s nice, but I’m going back to bed.”

Luckily, I thought better of it. So, I grabbed my camera and walked out into the streets of Bondi. There I noticed that the world was, in fact, orange. Everything was orange – the air, the sky, and the objects on the street all were a different shade of the same color.

It was like the Twilight Zone on Tang.

Apparently a rare dust storm had blown into Sydney from the Outback. The dust caught the refelction of the rising sun, and it cast everything in an orange hue. Those who were awake a little earlier than me reported that thieir world was a fire red.

Perhaps it was an homage to the late, great Patrick Swayze, that Sydney experienced a Red Dawn.

Anyway, the pictures above were not taken with some wierd film/setting, nor were they edited in Photoshop. They were taken as is.

I just wish I would have walked the extra 5 minutes to the beach to take some pictures there. Oh well, next time.

Details about my India trip coming soon!
