Sandy’s wake: The Destruction Seen through Instagram


“Jane’s carousel is basically an island now. Poor horses.” – Instagram user

Normally I wouldn’t write about Instagram posts, but this one in particular is devastating, disheartening, and shocking.

Have a look at the impact of Hurricane Sandy in this WSJ article, and in its wake.

I won’t say much, except to say that the images are stunning and surreal. I’m glad photographers were able to share the hurricane from their perspective– cell phone camera haters can go kick themselves.

I can’t express just how powerful these images are too me– the humans getting together to form a community (see the starbucks photo), and the lack thereof (empty neighborhoods); almost reminds me of a post-apocalyptic world.

Hope everyone is now safe.
