The Storm - Entrance Way
During the calm of the storm, I was able to go out of my house and walk around. Many of the roads were still flooded and it felt nearly impossible to walk in some parts. At one point, the water was up to my shoulders. As I walked, I stopped to take this photo. On the left, a red car had been abandoned, without the owners in sight. On the right, another car can be seen almost reaching the higher ground of the Whataburger parking lot, but being unable to. I personally feel that this image represents Houston as a whole during the storm as you can see the freeway entrance of 45 South, along with the Whataburger on the right, a well known burger joint in Texas. The stillness of the water shows that the worst was over with, but the damage that the storm had caused was still there. A hauntingly, beautiful scene to witness.
