photojournalism in musing and pictures

New Orleans link

with one comment

Denny just posted a great gallery of pictures from our rad New Orleans trip to help rebuild a couple houses in the Lower Ninth Ward.  We went with his family’s church group from Ohio to help them renovate the houses of a Pastor and his daughter, and his church.  It was a remarkable experience, and the Ninth Ward is really a place you have to see to believe.  It’s an incredibly sad story of the politics of poverty in our nation to walk through streets that were ravaged by a hurricane over three years ago – and have yet to even be touched since then.

  1. I did not realize just how much damage hasn’t been repaired since the hurricane. The pictures were beautiful, Denny did a good job. I liked your feet on the ladder, it was cute :) and the one with the older gentlemen with his tongue out haha that one was awesome!
