Britrish Petroleum Oil Spill Disaster.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
05 May 2010. Venice, Louisiana. Deepwater Horizon, British Petroleum environmental oil spill disaster.
Fishing guide William Bradford picks up sludge as he glides through a mix of oil and dispersant, 10 miles south of Venice Marina and approximately 34 miles from the site of the Deepwater Horizon's sunken oil platform. The sludge is a gelatinous mix with the consistency of diarrhea, sometimes clumped together in large masses so thick you can not see the ocean through it. The water, for miles and miles is filled with small pea shaped clumps, most the size of every kind of fish food available from small fish shape to shrimp to plankton. It is everywhere. The sheen on the surface is everywhere. It stretches for miles and miles and miles and miles and miles. Dead Jellyfish shrivel in the mix, the main seafood of turtles passing through at this time of year. What have we done?
