    Me and my girlfriend took a road trip to Florida two weeks ago, and on the way back we stopped in New Orleans so I could take a couple pics. I had a couple friends from Ninth Ward, and so I stopped in their neighborhood and took some.

    It's a sad scene to take ... but the flowers and grass in #3 are encouraging !

    Frankly speaking, it looks just a little worse than some parts of Detroit. However unlike Detroit, New Orleans will recover eventually.

    Odd that many volkwagens in a row. Great pics. On the conspiracy theory --water and food could have been dropped from out of range. And they stayed because they had no were else to go.

    I guess I couldn't have expected any less than for this thread to immediately turn to politics. But then again............it's a topic that's so extreme, it kind of HAS to. Especially since the truth hurts. Everybody wants to scream the loudest, so they don't have to hear the truth.

    Very good captures. :thumbup: The devastation is hard to see, even all these months later. I really like the one with the Bug - good job!

    A reminder to everyone to please keep the political/social comments out of the thread. Thanks.

    I find this comment rather offensive and irrelevant.

    Regarding the pictures, I like this series in that I think it documents the event well. The third one is my favorite. This is quite a reality check as I'm looking into attending school down there.

    nevermind--- its not worth arguing. Lets just enjoy photography.
    -and please try to keep condesending non-factual theories against other
    racial groups to a minimum. At least in the gallery forum... lol
