    Don't know if any of you have seen this.

    clicky linky

    I found it interesting because I recognize most of the places having been to New Orleans several times when I lived in Florida, plus once recently.

    I was also at burning man for 8 days with no media access and never got to see/hear any of the coverage most of the country was getting on what happened. I thought this was an interesting perspective.

    Yeah I think the captions are what make it.

    Reading/seeing that site makes the whole event a little more human and realistic than all the BS sensationalizing I've seen on a lot of the major news outlets.

    Wow - aside from the compelling subject matter, what really sets this apart is the fact that the guy is a gifted photographer
