Alvaro Morales Katrina Photographs
Here's a new link to "Five Days With Katrina" the Alvaro Morales slideshow that is hosted again on the Kodak Gallery. These extraordinary photographs, taken by Alvaro R. Morales Villa, a Nicaraguan who worked in the Chateau Sonesta hotel in the French Quarter of New Orleans, were first linked on the Gill Blog on September 10th but the photo gallery has moved to a new site.
Our original post included links to other excellent photoblogs, too, that were specifically started in the wake of Hurricane Katrina and are still maintained as active blogs today. Two of the best Katrina photo blogs are Eye of the Storm and Operation Eden. Nearly four months after Hurricane Katrina hit, it's worth checking back to these extraordinary weblogs to see what's been happening on the ground in the Gulf Coast communities since the mainstream media turned our attention to more recent news.
As a Christmas tree and a stove sit outside of a trailer parked in front of a home gutted by Hurricane Katrina in Chalmette, Louisiana, on Tuesday, Dec. 20, Hurricane Katrina is the overwhelming choice for 2005's Top Story, editors and news directors say, according to a recent media survey by the Associated Press.
The Carnival of Hurricane Relief was hosted on Gill Blog as a small antidote to "relief fatigue" and we hope you'll check it out again, or for the first time if you're new to Gill Blog and missed our presentation on November 30th, the three month anniversary of Hurricane Katrina hitting New Orleans.
