Recently, I made my first trip to Galveston since Hurricane Ike hit and I was surprised at how much was still left to be done. I really only visited the seawall and the Strand area, but both were deserted and the seawall did not look like the sewall I remembered. Gone were the piers and souvenir shops. Only a handful of stores and restaurants were open.

Here are some of the photos I took.

...and the sky is gray

    It is sad how much Galveston is struggling and no one seems to be paying any attention. We are going to look around one day and it is going to be too late to save it.

    From a purely photojournalist perspective, these are fantastic photos. On a more human level, the pure devastation is shocking – my thoughts go to those rebuilding their lives.

    Well done, Jeff – this is a story that needs to be told.
