New Orleans Photos

First of all, I need to emphasize: these are from right in front of the industrial canal break in the Lower 9th Ward. The whole city does not look like this. The whole 9th ward doesn't look like this. THE WHOLE LOWER 9th WARD DOESN'T EVEN LOOK LIKE THIS.

This one totally gets to me, because that's a really cute purple bathtub that someone picked out and probably really loved. And please note how the force of the water wrapped the car around the tree.
This is typical of the few blocks near the break. Heavy concrete steps are still there. Lightweight frame house is not.

Common Ground center in the Lower 9th.
