A hotel in the area is having a free garage sale today and Tuesday for guests at their hotel and any others displaced by Katrina (they are estimating we will have atleast 20,000 evacuees in our area by the weekend). They’ve apparently received an overwhelming amount of donations so far (so much so that they are taking over a floor of the office building next door) and are in need of volunteers to sort everything. They had people helping all through the night. I’m taking off this afternoon so am going to head over there to pitch in and do whatever I can to be of use.
I would really like to bring my camera(s), because I think this is the kind of thing to be captured. But I don’t want to offend anyone either. I’ll leave them in my car until I see how things go.
I’ve just recently learned about “Stuff Portrait Friday.” It sounds like fun, so I’m going to start playing. It will be a little later today before I have a chance to do the assigned photos, but I’ll get them up as soon as I can.
