Upside Down after Six Months

When owners have to worry about rebuilding their lives, their homes and their businesses I guess the boats should be the last thing on their minds.

other sizes: small medium original auto

Good shot...

Another fine photojournalism shot Coleen. I have learned more about the situation down there from your photos than from the national news and hundreds of phone calls.

Breaks my heart. I wonder how the marina is functioning with this all around.
It's really a quintessential hurricane image.

Depicts our situation well, Coleen. I think we have made enormous progress in the almost 6 months since the storm, but then you look around and see thwhat is left to do is still completely overwhelming.

Such a sad scene.
Robin Reid18-Feb-2006 02:58
Still this is a stunning scene.... the recovery is soooo slow.

Tough going here....
We have many friends whose only home is their boat.
Amazingly, if the hulls were not compromised,
many boats can be repaired easier than landside homes.
These boats don't belong to folks who live aboard them,
or they would be either back in the water or upright on jackstands.

Lives and boats upside down. It does put things in perspective, doesn't it? Good work, Coleen.

Wow, that is amazing! Your'e right, the boats are probably the last thing on their minds. Nice image Coleen.

This is amazing. It really does put priorities in perspective!

Such a shame, makes you realise where priorities must take precedence.
Katrina will be felt for at least a century.
