The Storm - Abandoned
This image was possibly the hardest one that I took. The water was almost to my neck and it was hard to walk as I couldn't see the floor and feared that I would step in something dangerous or fall into something deeper. But I had to take a photo of this abandoned truck, as it was nearly completely consumed by the water. As I got closer, I noticed that the truck was completely empty from the inside. The open door signified that either the people inside had to quickly leave or someone else tried to rummage through it after the original owners left. Looking further inside, it's noticeable that nothing was left behind, besides some trash from fast food restaurants. This image makes me wonder about the situation that the people inside the truck were in. It makes me wonder whether they tried to escape the impending rain or they knew their truck was no longer savable. Either way, its a haunting reminder of the un-readiness that half of Houstonians faced in this unforgettable storm.
