Charley's aftermath

These were all taken right around my house after I was finally allowed to come back home onto the island. It was too hot and I was too lazy to walk any further than just around my house. Some show destruction, others are just random things that I took pics of.

Here is a cool looking beach house that doesnt seem to be harmed much,

Here is the empty beach, my gf is in the background,

Here's a tree that fell on some power lines,

Heres my girlfriend holding a piece of metal that blew out of a resturaunt,

This is the oldest pub on the island. It is now condemned and must be torn down,

Somebody's house,

This is a pub at the corner of my street, its completely ruined from the water and it is now condemned and must be torn down,

Thanks for putting these up Dustin. Shots like these put a more personal face on this situation than does network news coverage, which is basically presented for entertainment.

But how is -your- home? Do you have power and is it habitable?

Glad to see you're safe.

Those are very nice pics. What photo equipment are you using? Some of that stuff looks like the type of shots I do with my film camera and a red high-contrast filter. I tend to use fast, high grain film though.

Oh my home is fine. Its between two huge buildings (a gigantic house and a condo) and Mangroves so it doesnt have any wind damage. We also built our foundation up before we built the house so water didnt get to us either.


I have footage too, not great footage, but its something. I will put it up as soon as I get internet service back at my house (I'm at work right now). I had it yesterday but I guess the workers cut the line again on accident or something.

Thanks. I'm using a Canon EOS 500n with a 28mm-90mm zoom lens with a polarizer and Kodak iso400 film that I bought at Eckerd's. Oh and a large lens hood, which is why you see some vignetting.

Here is some footage of the aftermath. Its nothing extremely exciting since I didnt have a rain slicker to go outside during the storm and by the time I was alowed back on my island there wasnt much left to videotape.


Windows Media 9


Sorry for the shaky footage. I didn't feel like toting a tripod around with me so its all hand held.
