Sand Storm View

These pictures were taken weeks ago during heavy sand storm in my working place, I can't imagine I've sucked how much of sand into my body. I only can stand for few minutes in the construction site then I went back to my desk in office.

The air quality here is very bad, I'm trying not to do much outdoor activities during sand storm happened here.

Blur vision

It's not cover by fog, it's by fine sand!!!

Very Low Visibility

I was more worried about my camera, the fine sand can damage my camera if I exposed it too long in this condition. After snap some pictures, I quickly keep clean up my camera. I was wearing safety goggle too, if not I can even can open my eyes.

Sand Attack!!!

Sand blast for my understanding is a technical term to 'sand blast' the steel rebars from rust or debris.

Yah... It's true

Yah... I really pity them, the work can't be stopped.

I breath in more than I eat lor... Don't know how long I can stand with it.
