In the first person

Just came across the most remarkable photo essay by a fellow named Alvaro, documenting the condition of New Orleans as it sailed through the hurricane in what appeared to be the usual way…breathed a sigh of relief…and then got into real trouble. His commentary and his extraordinary photos provide personal, chronological, and historical perspective and even some humor, besting many of the national reporters who have been broadcasting from there in recent days.
