well - three years to the day we evacuatin again. i am back in lafayette and things are very different this time. EVERYONE is getting out..no one wants to be in that same position again in the aftermath of Katrina. Funny, i had planned on attending the City of NO's 3 year anniversary event in Jackson Square. the city enlarged one of my photographs to around 30x40 and was going to display it in the square - it was a photo of some happy kids i shot during a job w/ Kidsmart. it was the AFTER shot of of atwo part series - the BEFORE was one of Sam Porteras haunting images of a mud covered abandoned schoolroom. special shit.

As we know all life is put off again till we get back. Can't wait.
