Aftermath of Hurricane Katrina--Pictures, Thoughts and Rants on a Deadly Killer!

These are pictures I've taken out and about in Ocean Springs, MS. No pictures are "borrowed" from the web. I have sent some pics in to the local newspaper via e-mail for publication, but all of these photos were TAKEN BY ME PERSONALLY, unless otherwise noted. I've lived in OS all of my life, and these are the first scenes I captured when I returned from Tallahassee, FL after Fleeing Hurricane Katrina. Come back often, as I have over 70 photos, that need to be uploaded!!!

More Scenes From East Beach--Ocean Springs

With daylight fading, you can barely see the red coloring of a sports car lodged between two trees near the Gulf Coast Research Lab property. In the distance is the GCRL property and the sheer lack of trees on a once completely shaded property is sobering to say the least. In the foreground you can see a tree that has come to rest on power lines on Halstead Road when it uprooted.



The shell of a home....at least what's left of it...on East Beach. What was once a beautifully restored home now sits gutted. You can almost picture the grace that once enveloped this old home. For years the home sat on East Beach...well off the road, lying in disrepair. Someone lovingly undertook it as a project to restore it and even moved it one lot over to where it sits now. The project took A LONG TIME to complete, making the house one of the most majestic (IMHO) on East Beach. The owner's had only completed the restoration and been living in the home for approximately one year.

I don't bother reading many blogs but I really like your's. Well done on adding something good to the rubbish that usually fills blogs.

My site is on makeup for acne scars related goodies. It pretty much covers most makeup for acne scars subjects.

If you get time, pop in and have a look

Thanks
