Artist's Description

Ok I typically don’t describe my pictures, but I feel this one needs to be described. I recenly took a trip to New Orleans, where several of my friends and I happened upon an abandoned school. We found our way into the second story and through a broken window I managed to capture a picture of the playground. I didn’t realze until after I took the picture that there was a reflection of a mural on a wall that represented the only children that have been at the school since Katrina hit almost three years ago.

It is my desperate hope that no child quit school altogether as a result of this storm, but by the looks of this building it’s not at all impossible that too many people were too radically displaced to ever find sanctuary in the facility again.
