Katrina Looting Unabated

We are receiving reports of rampant looting in New Orleans and other cities.  Link: Crime, looting unabated.  Yes I know the press can over-emphacise the negative of any situation, but there must indeed be significant instances of looting.

I’m sure there are many wonderful people in New Orleans.  In fact I have a blogger friend that was chased out of the area befor the storm hit and I am awaiting her updates from the storm.  But, this looting is indeed showing some of the worst of humanity.  When times are tough, what is inside a person is what comes out.  We are seeing some of the wickedness of man.

Of course there are tales of heroism also…  I am having some thoughts as to going down there to volunteer in the cleanup effort.  If anyone knows of some organizations doing great work down their in the clean-up effort I would be very interested in hearing.


About waynem

As a Minnesota based photographer and artist I have been greatly influenced by the Upper Midwest. I focus my skills and energies on portraits, landscapes, cityscapes, architectural and fine art work. My best work comes from images first painted in my mind. I mull over a prospective image for weeks or months, seeing it from different angles and perspectives, then finally deciding what to capture. The result is images that deeply touch people's emotions and powerfully evoke memories and dreams. My images are used commercially by companies and organizations ranging from Financial Services firms, mom and pop Ice Cream shops and The Basilica of St Mary to communicate their shared vision and values. Book and magazine publishers have featured my images on their covers. My photographs also grace and enhance the decor of many fine homes.
