Make Levees Not War - New Orleans, USA 2006

I visited New Orleans in 2006, and this surreal image of a marooned boat in the middle of a devastated neighborhood was taken at that time. The aftermath of Hurricane Katrina remains, and much in the way of dedicated resources and people power is needed to rebuild this amazing city.
