It all comes down to this.

any folks have asked me on various social media if I photographed Hurricane Ida.

Yes and no.

I was a little busy weathering the storm and its aftermath. But I did make a few frames that I’m slowly turning into my version of art.

This one is pretty simple.

It’s storm drain that I cleared prior to the storm’s arrival so we wouldn’t flood. Apparently, I did my job since we never flooded. Plenty of other, wind-driven stuff happened that made up for it.

As we started to dry out I noticed some mossy areas starting to grow in the shade so I made a few pictures of that.

When the time was right, I started working with them. Don’t ask me how I got here because I don’t remember. I do know that there were a lot of starts and stops along the way.

After all, the important stuff is simple. The simple stuff is hard.
