Weekly Photo Challenge: Abandoned

Post a Week                                                                                                 Feb. 28,2014

I was In the vicinity Of Gulfport, Miss. about 18 months after hurricane Katrina hit. Gulfport was a town that my wife and I had  spent several three or four days trips at a time coming and going across the United States. We were very fond of the town,so we wanted to see how bad the storm had damaged it. Being a photographer – I took many pictures of the devastation.  This is really Abandonment to the extreme.

    • Your right. It was devastating to me when I was taking the pictures. I saw many places that we had eaten at – that was only a concrete slab. Casinos that were on Barges , because that was the law- Were now on land because of the storm. They changed the law and allowed the casinos to rebuild on land.
