Hurricane Sandy Photos

As all of you know Hurricane Sandy took out a lot of the Jersey Shore and NY. Luckily in South Jersey we made out pretty well. I didn’t lose power at my house but most people did in Jersey and NY. The morning after the storm I headed down to Atlantic City to try to get some photos of the aftermath but no one could get on any of the barrier islands in Jersey. So I drove around Pleasantville which is right before AC on the bay. Seeing some of the things I saw made think how lucky we actually were that some of us didn’t get hit as hard. A lot people were saying Sandy wasn’t anything and wanted a better storm. Be careful what you ask for. Some of the homes I saw were gone and families left with nothing. If I get a chance to get onto any of the barrier islands I will take some photos and post them. As of now, no one can get on the islands unless you have prove of residency. Also remember while looking at these photos, the homes on the Shore are far worse with 4 feet of sand in their houses and streets with a lot more issues.  Here are some of the photos from Sandy on the mainland. The black and white photos were shot with my Canon AE1 and others were with my Nikon.
