14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Tornado Shelter in Wellington Florida
This is a photo of random people in a Tornado Shelter in Wellington Florida. Being from California I had never experienced a Tornado before. Though I was a bit nervous, I found the nonchalant mannerisms of the local people to be interesting. They appeared to have more important things to do than to take shelter. I liked how they were all gathered around the exit sign and even the one gentleman standing in the back looks like he's ready to escape. I liked how institutionalized the shelter felt and looked. It felt like I was standing in a federal government building.
