Not totally photo related, not just a journal. A bit of both.

Beautiful in it's horror

Photographer: Dave Martin/AP

A wave in the Gulf of Mexico breaking on Orange Beach, Alabama. Thats more than 140km from the British Petroleum oil spill. via The Guardian in the UK.  Someone said this was the oil industry's 9-11. I think it's more like the oil industry's Chernobyl. 9-11 stopped. Chernobyl is still a disaster.

It's such a shame.
Even with the car almost out of gas earlier, we kept on past the BP station to find another. I was surprised to see someone filling up there.
