These photographs are of last year’s tornado damage, which hit near High Falls, Georgia. I was on the road (same trip I mentioned in my previous recent posts), so these were shot along the interstate as the car drove by. I have driven by this damage on multiple occasions, but I was never able to whip out my camera fast enough. Thankfully, I asked my mom this time to remind me so I had time to set up my camera. Not much time, but just enough to grab some quick shots. The destruction is fascinating to me, even though I do not know the extent of this particular tornado’s damage, because I can envision the tornado swirling and sweeping intensely around these trees in an attempt to uproot them. I find it incredible that some trees were never fully uprooted; some are missing their tops and their branches. Some are overturned and some are split in two. The vision is a spectacle for the sparse landscape is scattered with trees standing proudly against a mess of debris and fallen, cracked tree friends. The juxtaposition is powerful; as if the tornado handpicked certain trees to yank from their physical place and manipulate their purpose; a purpose of destruction. Tornados have minds of their own. They do what they want and when they want. Mother nature is a crazy, powerful thang.
