What Do I Do?

I literally have thousands of photographs that I've taken in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. I've documented the destruction, recovery, and now the rebuilding along the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Last June, I asked myself how to best share the photos I took of the destruction of my hometown of Gulfport and of other cities along the Mississippi Gulf Coast. I've taken photos from Bay St. Louis to St. Martin. Between May 31 and August 29, 2006, I made three videos. I wanted people to know about the grievous wounds Hurricane wrought and now the healing that is occurring in Mississippi. They are listed on the right. Today, I made my fourth. It is called My Katrina - Keep Holding On and reflects the progress that has been made since the 1 year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.

Waiting for Clients


A view of the inside of some law offices in downtown Gulfport. It was surreal seeing the ceiling fan and chairs seemingly undisturbed and just waiting for clients. The building housing the law offices had its top story sheered off by the winds of Hurricane Katrina and its bottom story gutted by the storm surge.

Salvaged



A 100,000 homes along the Mississippi Gulf Coast were destroyed or had to be demolished because of Hurricane Katrina. Homeowners would place the items they found on the slab. This homeowner found a few bricks and a couple of dishes and placed them on the stoop that remained.

Destiny



My grand-niece Destiny.

Drama Queen


Nature can be such a drama queen. The sunset highlighted the clouds and made them appear to be a whirlpool.

Entwined



I've walked along Bayshore Dr daily for almost a year now. Today was the first time I noticed how the two trunks of the pine tree had grown entwined.

Dream Island



When the atmospheric conditions are conducive, Cat Island, 12 miles offshore can be seen. The trees on the island appear to be hovering over the water.
