A few more images made during my week spent in the Gulf states back then. The damage and widespread destruction spread much further than just the New Orleans delta area. It all reminded me of the earthquakes I’d seen throughout my career.
(An edited take from my week in the Gulf can be viewed HERE, and is viewed rather nicely as a full-screen slide show by clicking the “Slideshow” button in the upper right of the page.)
