A big flood in a small town.

A flood in June of 2015 washed over the small town of Wimberly, Texas. This part of a bridge that was obliterated in the flood had been saved for a memorial. During a time where lives were changed, fallen trees were burned, and homes were destroyed, it was important of me to cover what was happening. Since this was far away from where i live, i decided not to post pictures of people (due to the lack of ability to get consent), but rather something that people will see years from now at a memorial. This will remind them of where that very piece of metal was during this tragedy.
