abandoned school, rubble



here's this photo i took, in new orleans, just a few days ago. i snapped it two stories up, in an abandoned building that i climbed up into via fire escape. the entire place is still totally trashed, as you can see, nothing cleaned up since katrina. there's even some writing still scrawled across one of the chalkboards, including a date: 8/23/05.

rubble is evocative, and disturbingly poetic. it tilts toward metaphor. but whatever metaphors this rubble suggests (about our crumbling national public educational system?) it is also literal. a literal statement-- about public services in new orleans.

so i thought i'd post it.
