This photo reflects the hope after the destruction. At the beginning after Hurricane Irma everything was darkness, desolation and anguish. However, if you pay attention and see the future, the light will start to appear, showing that even after a tragedy is possible to stand up and find a new way that will help us to overcome and build everytime a stronger sxm.
And this picture is exactly what happened, I took the picture in the darkness during the midnight, but after 2 minutes you can star seeing what is invisible to the eyes, the light, the new hope.
