Post Katrina New Orleans November 2005

The November trip presented new photographic possibilities. The city was "de-watered" for the most part and parts of New Orleans East and the 9th ward were open to the public and if you were carefull, you could even get into the lower 9th war. This was the first trip that I was able to be into all the areas around the levee breaches. The city was still a mess and the National Guard was everywhere. Note to all young photographers of diaster zones, if you have a choice, it was better to get caught by the National Guard than the NOPD if photographing in a prohibited area.
