What’s your story?
Again I am a bit behind with my CSA post. For the past few days I have been in New Orleans visiting Tulane University as my oldest son tries to decide where his future will take him. As I walked around campus, I couldn’t help but think about what Carmen wrote about her February CSA photo. Because the effects of Hurricane Katrina are still evident and felt by all of the area’s residents, there are many stories to be told. But many of Tulane students are from various places around the country and around the world. Many current students were not in NOLA to see the devastation when it happened but as they have explored the city and did service projects (a huge part of the Tulane experience) they have seen the physical reminders of the events that took place during and after the hurricane. They have learned stories not only from the people but also from the physical surroundings, both documented and from their own imagination. Enjoy Carmen’s beautiful photography and her words that further illuminate her passion for the photo and its subject.
This house sits on a hill all alone as the sun sets. It is so full of texture and the sunlight wrapped around it. I always wonder who lived in these old houses and what was their story.
