Be sure and read the descriptions for each of these images for a better understanding of these disasters. The year 2015 marks the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina and the 5th anniversary of the BP Oil Disaster in the Gulf Of Mexico. These images were taken in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina which blew through the Mississippi Gulf Coast on August 29, 2005 and the BP Oil Disaster which started in April 2010 with the Macondo well blowout in the Gulf Of Mexico . The images in this gallery were not taken as Fine Art images. They were taken to document and share images of that event with others who were not able to view the effects of such an event. If you want more information on any of these images please e-mail Kathy K. McClellan at firstname.lastname@example.org . Thanks!
