After days of terrifying predictions, Irma arrived in the Florida Keys last Sunday morning and on the Florida mainland Sunday afternoon. It entered the state as a Category 4 hurricane and left as a still-powerful tropical storm. The question now is whether local residents will link the intensifying extreme weather to the issue of global warming. Initial interviews indicate that the answer is a disappointing “no”… The photo of Fort Myers at better days is from my 2014 visit to the Florida Keys.

"Photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place. It has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with how you see them."
I just like to take pictures, I just push the button. I never worked in the darkroom, I never studied photography or journalism; I’m just a passionate photographer.
"Success is the ability to go from failure to failure, without a loss of enthusiasm”
Sir Winston Churchill
