The Story of Hurricane Ike

Hurricane Ike

Tells the whole story of Hurricane Ike

I shot this photo on the Bolivar pennisula in Texas after Hurricane Ike came through and left little of what had once been there. It tells a poignant story about the destructive force of a Hurricane. The eye of the hurricane came directly accross the narrow strip of prime ocean front properties. The enormous storm surge that came across the took the lives of many people who had decided to ride the storm out. I saw large expanses of areas where all that remained were graveyards of foundation stilts that once supported homes built “safely” above any possible high water mark. Or so people thought. Many were ten to fifteen feet too low.
