Photos of the Day......First Inn of Branson

I have a few more Branson Tornado Damage photos that I would like to share.  These last few photo postings will have themes.  The theme for this one is the First Inn of Branson.  I spent a good amount of time looking at this one building and I felt it alone had a survival story to tell so I gathered together the relevant photos of this building and put them into their own posting.  

The first photo is an internet download of the building as it looked before the storm hit.  The remaining photos are different views and perspectives on the damage it received.

Photos of the Day......Branson Tornado Victims, Gawkers and Clean Up.

With this posting I have attempted to capture the people.  I have a very bad habit of concentrating too much on things and not nearly enough on people.  When you get right down to it everything really is about people.  

I suspect I might have been a subject of gawkers.  I went "whole hog".  With two cameras draped from my neck, one with a short lens the other telephoto.  I suspect I looked the part as I squatted and climbed up to get good angles.

The people who suffered the most seem to be the people who could least afford it.  The two first pictures are from the Ria Motel which houses homeless people living there on weekly rental.  Now where are they to go?  Please read this KY3 article on these very people.,0,5550931.story

Photos of the Day......Tornado Damage in Branson, Missouri

I have posted a few photos of the tornado damage I saw in Branson on Wednesday afternoon.  I will post additional "themed" photos over the next few days.  The damage was extensive but also condensed within in a small area. If I was to say anything at all about these photos it would be to remind you that this was, on the overall, a small tornado.  Please click on the image to enlarge and explore.
