Colors of The Rain - A Global Warming Symptom?
Text and picture by Eki Qushay Akhwan
There have been quite a number of weather surprises here lately. August is supposed to be the height of the dry season in Bandung, but there have been a few days where rains fall unexpectedly. While they are a welcome respite from the dry spell, they are a bit surprising nonetheless.
I took this photo earlier in the month on Jalan Wastukancana, Bandung. It was sunny when I left home for the downtown. Some 30 minutes later, the rain began to fall. As I was on my motorcycle, I had to stop. And while I was waiting for the rain to stop, a couple of kids came into sight with their colorful umbrellas. They were playing in the rain. So I took out my camera and began shooting. This was one of the snapped photos.
Weather irregularity is probably a symptom of global warming. Here is what wikipedia says about it.
