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.

Postaweek/Postaday

A house being rebuilt after Katrina in Gulfport,Mississippi. Compared to the devastation, this is definitely renewal. Hopefully people in Hurricane Sandy can move along faster then it is now and faster than it took Katrina. This photo was shot 18 months after the storm.
