New Orleans, LA

I just got back from New Orleans about an hour and a half ago. These photos, mostly of the Upper 9th Ward, were taken with my small, not-so-great camera and most were taken out the window of a moving Van on the way to or from houses on cloudy days, which accounts for their overall shittiness. Still, they give an idea of what the city is still like. It's kind of sickening that a year and a half after the storm the poor black districts of the city are still in total ruin while the Garden District and the French Quarter are in great condition and currently being refurbished.
