Category: Signs
Award: 1st Place

In the photographer's words: "While visiting Nairobi, Kenya, there was a very bad storm with high winds and torrential rains. Following the storm, signs and trees were blown over, roads were washed out, and it was obvious a bad storm had come through the city. I captured this large road sign that had blown over onto cars parked in a lot and noticed that two men were on top trying to readjust and fix the sign. The one man appears to not have shoes on and I have no idea how they even got on the large sign to repair it. I couldn't believe this is how they would fix the sign. There were numerous buildings with severe damage and signs of this size and magnitude blown over."
