Well, here are my Biloxi pictures. Some of 'em. I can't be bothered to format this very much, just wanted to put 'em up here for y'all to see. The captions are under the pictures, and full size can be found here.
Looking through the branches of the Friendship Oak on USM's Gulf Coast campus. The Friendship Oak is a 500-year-old, HUGE tree.
Abandoned lot in Long Beach. Highway 90 was just depressing, 4 years later.
Dangerous pier. Still lots of damage down there. I couldn't believe it.
I don't even know what this was. An abandoned lot, with tiles still solidly in place. I think Katrina blew away a no-tell motel or something. Maybe a very tiny office building.
You would have to see this to believe it - an artist on the Coast saw an opportunity to create art out of sadness. Whoever the artist(s) is (are), they carved animals into dead oak trees, then sealed them. They're absolutely fascinating. I took a bunch of pictures.
Another oak tree sculpture.
The dead among the living.
My kingdom for a hammock...
Yay for oblique angles! Some boat that'd washed up on the beach. Guess nobody cared about it enough to get it back.
More footprints. I like this picture.
Confederate Veterans' Cemetery, Beauvoir
Dead palm tree on the beach.
I put them back on after I saw broken glass and a condom. But hey, pink flip flops, they're kinda my thing.
