Katrina photos: Mid-City, pt. 1

I helped friends move refrigerators out of their homes weeks after Hurricane Katrina. Did you know that rotten eggs are highly explosive -- and when they explode it sounds like a gun was fired? It's too bad there's no way to post smells.

Mmmm ...








Nice closeup.












A table passed down through the family from a great grandfather, on the trash pile.



Lost family memorabilia -- school pictures and other items of significance in the life of a child in school.















Very skittish, scared homeless dog looking for food. Mercifully, the owner of the house in the picture leaves out food and water.

I love your photo essays. I have yet to see anyone else show it like it is, right now.

Do you happen to know anyone with pictures of Jeff Davis Pkwy. when it was still flooded? I live a house off of Jeff Davis and Banks and am just wondering what it looked like - mike@mikerigamer.com

The only person I know of who was in that area for the flooding is a photographer named Jonathan Traviesa.

Other than that, you should post your question to one of the NOLA.com forums, or look at some of the other photo links in the sidebar.
