Workmen ripped out some Sheetrock and insulation in my home yesterday.  Demolition is less than 50% complete.  This morning a heavy trash truck picked up debris.  Halfway down the block there is a pile of rotting, fly covered garbage.  Most of the flooded homes are vacant now.  There will not be much activity for about a month because the permitting process is difficult.  Many homes will not be repaired.  They will be torn down and replaced with elevated structures.  I am living in a half flooded house.  Once the kitchen is torn out, I might move out.

The adjuster was here yesterday, but I will not receive his findings for a few days.  A contractor who did major work for me in the past has been hired.  Tuesday he will bring out some dehumidifiers, a few days later baseboards will be removed.  Please entertain yourself with these photos.

These are from the first and second day in Amsterdam.  I felt a few had a significant message in the color so that is how they are presented.  It is important not to be locked into any particular format.  Besides, when shooting digital you can have it both ways. My neighbors tell me the street in front of my house in Houston is a river.  One of them is going to check on the place today, but I really can’t do anything about it.

Here are some more photos from my first day in Amsterdam.  I was never that far from the Rijksmuseum as my hotel was nearby and I did not feel like going far after the long flight and 7 hour time change.

These were taken in or near the park behind the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. It was my first day there leaving me very jet lagged.  I helped the guy fix his bike.  The chain had jumped off the sprockets.

Most of us think of Hawaii as a place of lush color, but I found a few shots from my last visit to Maui that would work well in black and white.
