James, your photo shows a man walking through wreckage in the aftermath of a tornado. The photo looks like it was taken pretty soon after the tornado. Tell us a little about the photo and how it was made.
The man in the photograph is John Hess who I found walking with a cane out of his neighborhood just a little while after a tornado passed through and destroyed his home along with most of the houses on his block.
I’m not real sure how soon after the storm passed that I made it to the scene. The police had arrived but had not yet shut down the main road that passed by the subdivision. After I made it past the few officials stopping people from going in the neighborhood, I met up with a firefighter who was going looking for people who might need help. John was in the second group we came too, he was with his wife and a friend who was helping them get out.
