Got Nothing

There are a few things that I'll post about later this week. One is about my beginning to incorporate the Sabbath into my life and the other is my take on the Confederate flag. Now I have a cold and am about to go to work. So for your amusement or pain, whatever the case may be, more photos.





Biloxi - Hwy 90, Demolition of the President Casino is almost complete. It slammed into some apartments during Hurricane Katrina. It traveled about a half mile from it's moorings.







Me and my shadow. I liked the colors from the street lights and the pattern.










Biloxi - Hwy 90 across from the Mississippi Coast Coliseum, Lot of debris still around from the apartments, hotel, and casino barge.








Moses Pier - Gulfport, Least sandpiper. These little birds are fun to watch. When they are at the waters edge, they scurry back and forth with the waves.






I haven't posted too many pictures of the buildings and homes in Gulfport that were destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. I suppose it's because those are the ones that hurt the most and I'm not ready to expose the pain.

I hope your cold gets better soon.
Your pictures certainly are good. (Quality wise I mean)
They really show us non residents the scope of the disaster. Thank you for posting them.

The area still looks devastated.
But - it'll get back to normal.
Love the little sandpiper.

felis,

It's going to be years before it can be rebuilt. Clean-up is progressing.

They're sweet little birds.

From one downed by a cold to another, hope you feel better soon. The pictures are wonderful, as always. I'm fond of the sandpiper too. Pictures of a Casino going down just depresses me... But I'll perk myself up in Vegas this weekend.

esther,

It's really more an allergy than a cold. I'll have another two bouts before summer hits. Stuff is pollinating already!

Sometimes I want to take the little guys home!

You should see the plans in place to rebuild where it was once moored. Beautiful!

Good luck this weekend!

The photos bring it home to me though I am so far away. I live near the sea and we have plenty of white seagulls - 'flying rats'. It's almost like Hitchcock's 'The Birds' when you feed them - thousands come and join in on the action.

skylark,

The devestation is awesome and yet nature and us humans are bouncing back. The seagulls here are the same. Whenever I am walking along the beach and they come flying to see if I have anything to offer.

Have you thought anymore about publishing these photos?
