Help out a Habitat / More Irma Destruction at Miami’s Monkey Jungle

Monkey Jungle is one of the oldest and most unique natural South Florida family attractions and as they advertise, the human visitors are caged and the monkeys run wild. Over the years, I have created many memorable images there but Monkey Jungle took a big hit from Hurricane

What a Difference a Day Makes / Hurricane Irma’s Wrath

What a difference a day makes…The image below was created on a beautiful evening in Coconut Grove at Florida’s Dinner Key Marina. The water was perfectly calm and the sailboats were lit by natural light from a full moon… Fast forward to Sunday as Hurricane Irma came ashore on the

west coast of Florida some 100 miles across the state on Marco Island. Notwithstanding how far away the eye of the hurricane was, her intensity and strength had significant impact on much of the east coast because the storm stretched further than the width of the State itself.

sailboats that were secured specifically for the storm, were no match for her. The winds and surge of the water dislodged many of the boats with some of them winding up on the shore as seen above while others capsized in the water.

You can help those affected by the storm by contacting the Red Cross at 1-800-HELP NOW or online at: http://rdcrss.org/2y1q1VV
