While the ten year anniversary of hurricane Katrina has came and gone, little has been reported about the second category five hurricane that hit just three weeks later – hurricane Rita washed ashore, impacting the already vulnerable states of Louisiana and the rural, sparsely populated regions of Texas.

From my archive – portraits of actor, Sir Ben Kingsley, taken in Santa Barbara, California. One of the many reasons I love photography is that I get to meet people from many different walks of life.
However, I must say that this portrait session was a memorable.
Not only was it an honor to photograph this genius of an actor, but he was/is also very genuine, honest, and kind. He is a spiritual man; after all he did portray the Mahatma, in the multi-award winning film Gandhi.
I’ve been working on my portfolio website, looking through thousands of images; but more importantly looking at them through different eyes – and different apps. The images posted on my blog were recorded on Kodak Black and White Tri-X film; which I developed myself, and color slide film. For the black and white image, I did a painless adjustment using Priime and instagram.

Aerial view of devastation caused by hurricane Katrina, over Gulfport, Mississippi on Sunday September 11, 2005. The long red/orange object to the right, is a barge that served as a gambling casino. The water and winds from the hurricane relocated the casino to a different neighborhood.
This is what the front page looked like.

Throwback Thursday – with all the chatter about the upcoming anniversary of hurricane Katrina, I started going over my photo archive and
rediscovered this photo of me sitting on the tail of a Chinook helicopter, which served as my photography vantage point while on assignment, flying with the Ohio National Guard.
One of the best times in my life ever!
Recorded on September 11, 2005.
Hard to believe ten years have gone by.
The Chinook preparing to land in New Orleans, bearing 14 tons of supplies and yours truly. The stench from above was foul.
