Photographer's Note

.


This is one of the lucky people who escaped the 155-mph wind of the Hurricane Katrina, then survived the flood at their hometown New Orleans.

I hope her face tells you the story and her expression. The entire property she has now is a toy and a book. While shooting this picture, I was curious to know about her book as much as you. The army of Houston police kept me from coming closer and I knew I could not cross the “POLICE” yellow tape. Instead, I ran to the other side and waited. Finally, I was lucky to catch a photo from her back.

By the time you read this note, they are doing the body count in New Orleans where the mayor predicted the number could be thousands.

For now, a lot more human beings are drowning six days after Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast. Time is running out for thousands of people awaiting rescue.

Officials say they do not have the manpower, the resources or enough time to save everyone (true, no joke).

"My guys are coming back and telling me, 'Sir, I went into a house, and there are three elderly people in their beds, and they're gasping, and they're dying,' " Coast Guard Capt. Bruce Jones said.
