Life Among Ruin in 2008 - Waveland, MS Sunset

Sunset on Oak Blvd.

Two years and 7 months after Katrina, the ruined environment remains an all-too-real part of Katrina's legacy of destruction – a reminder that permeates one's view of the landscape.

However, varied plant life continues its struggle to live and grow amid the starkness and the tangles of thousands of dead and dying trees. Residents, such as my brave friends on Oak Blvd. (whose yard and sunset view are pictured here) have vowed to rebuild. Life is indeed present.

February Sky.

Life Among Ruin.

Gara, New to your blog.

I'm saddened to see how much work is still yet to be done since the aftermath of Katrina. It's truly a travesty.

I hope brighter days and more help is on the way.

I also have admired all your photo interpretations for the 2thingsphotochallenge.

Gara -

Found your blog via a mutual affinity for the film "The Straight Story!" I see that you're also a fellow tree hugger and birder, too.

I was down on the MS coast over a year ago, and it was absolutely humbling.

Keep up the good work on your blog :)
