Beach Front, Ocean Springs

Ocean Springs was badly damaged during Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Many old fishing piers that were damaged during the storm have not been replaced.

The Neon Museum

Because you are only allowed one camera and lens, I would recommend an all purpose zoom lens that lets you go wide, or shoot tighter. Something like a 24-70mm or 18-200mm would work well. It is hard to stand back from the signs, so you will definitely use the wide...
