This is my contribution to the September Virtual Paintout. This month's location is New Orleans. I chose this image to paint because I like to ride my bike(s) but what really struck me as I explored the area using Google Street View was the aftermath of hurricane Katrina. It was incredible to see the number of people who are still unable to live in their own houses, so instead, they live in trailers in front of their houses. Entire neighborhoods have trailers in front of their homes. You can't help but feel for those people. My heart goes out to them.
