Katrina memories on the Mississippi Gulf Coast

Another fruitful morning of shooting on the Mississippi Gulf Coast between Gulfport and Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. The striking thing about this area is how omnipresent Hurricane Katrina still is, over 8 years after that massive and devastating storm flooded and blew its way through this fragile coastline.

There are pockets that look recovered but vast sections of that shoreline that still look quite devastated, the live oaks and open fields marking the spots where homes used to stand. Katrina memories flood my mind as I walk these fields now.

I found many wonderful, mysterious things to photograph, working fast and furious and hoping that the morning fog would hold. Here are a few of the images from this trip, more to come later.
