'Five Days With Katrina'



Via one of my true gurus, Mark on Media, a potent piece of citizen journalism in the form of a 197-piece slide show from New Orleans hotel worker Alvaro R. Morales Villa.

Entitled 'Five Days with Katrina', the captioned images serve as a visual autopsy of a slain city. I'm especially struck by the above shot. It reminds me of the time I waded through the hip-deep floodwaters of downtown Grifton, gear held high and scanning the murky surface for that tell-tale slither of evacuating serpentines...

But enough about that. Go check out a sterling work of personal journalism.

Those were great pix and the story about getting out of town was just crazy! That's a must see site for everyone. Read the captions, especially at the end!

Does anyone happen to know where the slideshow has moved to?
The link is "bad" - states that the show has moved or been deleted.
Thanks!!

The photos were taken off the site momentarily to protect them from being copied. They will go back up tomorrow.-Silvia Morales(sister)
