I took these photos two days ago in Rockaway when I went to volunteer with a friend.
Please, if you have any free time, consider going out to any towns that have been badly affected by hurricane sandy. While the number of donations coming in is really wonderful, who knows how long it will take for these people to rebuild their lives. They need hands on help. Something as simple as walking from house to house asking if there’s anything you can do to help out really does make a difference.
I didn’t really have it in me to try to squish past video crew and other photographers in the photo pit so um I just tried to see how many different looking shots I could get from the exact same position. I think I did a pretty okay job.
