Healing...

It's been 9 months since Hurricane Harvey tried to destroy my home town. Rockport, TX was severely wounded. Many homes were lost... and lives were changed on August 25, 2017.

I stopped making landscapes of Rockport until yesterday. I took a few images of the damage right after the storm... and then I just couldn't do it any more. It didn't seem right to me. No... It's not that I didn't love this place anymore. It's just that I didn't want to show it hurt.

A few days ago I started to feel it. I felt a change here in Rockport. Things were getting better faster. Attitudes were becoming much more positive.. We were healing...

I wanted to shoot my neighborhood again. I went out yesterday morning and made some images from my neighbors deck out across Estes Flats and Aransas Bay. All of the reasons that I chose Rockport as my home came rushing back to me.

It's only going to get better and better...
