Venice La is a place I hate to go, but it's where alot of our deliveries are made so it's kinda like a gotta do situation. I guess I need to elaborate as to why I hate Venice. It's at the end of the Earth, then you take a left. Nothing's there but boat docks and water. Nothing to look at the whole way down there but these small towns. If you are good with directions it's south of New Orleans and at the very bottom.
It's where the rig blew up three weeks ago. My heart and prayers go out to those workers who lost thier lives and the families. Since that incident, I didn't go to Venice til last Saturday. I just didn't think that I could deal with the whole "death" hanging over the place.
Well, it was far from somber. In fact, I was making a delivery, trying to turn down the road, and almost got rear ended by some photographers trying to go get photos. I did my delivery and decided to go see what the hype was all about since the reports I was listening to said that the oil was not at the shoreline yet. SO I took my new to me handy dandy Kodak share p880 and went take me some photos to see if I could see the oil washing in.
The above photo and all the photos here were taken down that side road, all the way to the back where Bud's boat landing is located in case any locals know where that is. I saw no sign of oil here, which the office said would be an orangeish looking substance since it's in the raw form!
OK that's it for this photo essay, as you can see the oil hadn't hit the shore line as of yet, I hope you enjoyed my photos.
