Amphibious Tanks
21-MAY-2010 Jola Dziubinska

Amphibious Tanks

Warsaw, Poland

Those three amphibious tanks were being transported to the place where Wisla river overflew and people needed evacuation.
Not a usual sight in the city.

Looks like they are going off to war! At least your government is doing something. During the flood and the oil spill, our "president" didn't even go to see what the damage was. He's a complete turd. A month after the oil spill, he finally gave a speech on TV today. A little late, I'd say. But, then again, he's not a true American anyway. Sorry, didn't mean to vent but I'm tired of that man! Nice capture!

Nice timing...I'll bet those other cars were feeling really small! Hope all went well with the rescue. Interesting perspective and a beautiful area. - Racine

I was afraid it would have to do with the flood. Praying for all in it's path.

Excellent view point from above!! Love the green grass and busy street, looks so innocent against the massive tanks
Walter O. Koenig24-May-2010 17:28
Wow, this is not something you see every day. Great capture Jola.
Ken Duckert24-May-2010 13:36
Whoa! Now that would get everyone's attention.

This is a wonderful entry for the challenge Jola. We do not see tanks in transit too often.
