A totally devastated neighborhood...

Photo taken in the Lakeview section of New Orleans this past Sunday morning.

One of the sections of "devastated" New Orleans that I visited during my weekend visit was a middle to upper-middle-class area known as Lakeview. One street, Ponchtrain Boulevard, has trash mountains two stories high. The once beautiful neighborhood has become drab. There's no power. There's no people. The grass and trees, marinated for weeks in saltwater, are a dreary grey-brown. Everyone's life story is out on the street.

Tomorrow I'll write about a Church service I attended in Lakeview before moving on to visit East New Orleans and the Lower Ninth Ward.
