I've never been to New Orleans, which is probably something I will always regret.  I know it will never be the same again, but I hope it will become a "stronger" city once it's rebuilt.  The person who took these pictures really brought out the beauty of the city through his pictures - both before and after Katrina came through.  I felt like he was this great storyteller through his explanations of the pictures that he took.  Anyway, it impressed me.  I hope it does you, too.

Gosh, I don't know how I missed this, but today I'm playing ketchup and the site has been taken off.  Sorry, I missed it, but thank you for sharing.

Not found for me too...

I'm grateful that I viewed the photos over the weekend.  They were a stunning overview of the floods.  Thank you for directing us to them...

I'm always too late, but I take your words for it. He probably got overloaded with visitors.
