No Wake

No Wake

One of the many many flood victims of Super Storm Sandy that hit Long Island on October 29, 2012. The situation is still desperate, people are without power, and water and between 30 and 40 thousand are living in shelters as temperatures continue to drop. New York and New Jersey have begun to ration gas due to shortages.

It all sucks rather a lot. I'll bet most of the people hurt didn't think of themselves as living in a flood zone, and didn't have any flood insurance.

Have you made yourself a historian with your camera? Future generations may benefit from proof that such a thing can happen there.

It always seems amazing that such a large country still has large areas of devastation, but I guess there's only so many people that can fix things. This is a different type of photography than most of us do; and very important it is too.

Well, part of the problem is that we keep electing dopes instead of people who know what they are doing. Obviously, when elected officials cannot make it in the private sector they cannot do much better in public office either. We'll be fine. Thanks for your comments and well wishes.

Poignant shot, well captured. Hope all the folk are hanging in there, our thoughts are with you.
There are lies, damnable lies and statistics.

Hi Amanda, good to see you posting! Ha! As to your political comments - not much difference here either! I really feel for those with homes that are written off - it has been devastating - we have had huge amounts of media coverage and I really wonder how some communities are going to cope! Take care!
