Your Photos of Harvey

"This was taken Monday morning in Brazoria County, just east of Lake Jackson. The detail you have to strain to see are the two buzzards on the roof.

I almost felt guilty because of the still beauty of the light and the reflection — knowing that at its essence this was someone's heartbreak."
