Photos by Emily Murphy For Illustrating Letters
Kingwood photographer Emily Murphy often canoes the river. The images opposite belong to her. She has kindly shared them with the community. Please feel free to use them or any other images that you see in this web site to help illustrate your letters to the Army Corps and TCEQ. She took all of these images within a short distance of the proposed high-rise development.
