    Hi Mike – I wonder what this storm will bring this time … I sincerely hope it’s not as bad as Katrina. I looked up Carol Highsmith and her work is extraordinary … a fantastic archive for the Library of Congress to be given … cheers Hilary

      Harvey was a hard blowing storm when it landed — and now it’s going to linger with lots of rain and lots of flooding. We may get some of the remnants after it starts moving late next week. One estimate said that we could get 3 to 5 inches of rain — and the ground is already saturated from the nearly 8 inches we’ve gotten in the last 10 days — but the forecast is constantly changing.

      Highsmith is a wonder — and she is continuing to add new photos to her collection at the Library of Congress.
