Katrina photos - Lakeview


The 17th Street Canal, looking south toward the city, as repaired by the Corps of Engineers with 300-lb sandbags covered with gravel.






A torrent of water pushed houses off of their foundations, and washed away their contents.







The canal is just through the far wall.






























































Next time, Mid-City.

Everything is so deserted. It looks so sad. Are there still guards everywhere? How do you gain access to all these places? However you do it, keep the photos coming. They are intriguing.

mixter, access is unlimited everywhere one dares to venture, except for the lower 9th Ward in New Orleans East. That area, along with St. Bernard and Plaquemines parishes remain blocked without special permission or identification proving you live there.

Stacie, I missed you at Voodoo Fest. I have a post upcoming of photos I took of people wearing T-Shirts with New Orleans designs. You'll have seen some of them I'm sure.
