This image was collected in the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans shortly after Katrina.

Red painted marks were a universal symbol on the houses indicating they had been searched for survivors (TFW). The marking 10/8 DOG DOA indicates they found a deceased K9 October 08...

It appears the house was first searched on 10/3 with no animals found mainly due to the water level at the time

A used respiratory mask hangs from the rusted ironwork; this entire house was submerged with little more than the peak of the roof showing.

The address is a rather interesting point as well – 2911.

There has been little progress in the Lower Ninth Ward in rebuilding to date. Many of the occupants have started new lives in other areas of the country and abandoned all hope they will ever return to New Orleans, some out of the fear and devastation they endured during the five days after Katrina made landfall!

    I couldn't even take pictures of the Lower Ninth...such devastation.
