Most tourists return from a trip to New Orleans with pictures of parties, parades and revelry in the French Quarter.

The stark photos of the Crescent City taken by and displayed by Tallahassee father and daughter tell a different story.

Tallahassee artist and filmmaker Tyler Turkle was working on a documentary about political rivalries when he decided to make a trip to New Orleans in June to shoot footage in the neighborhoods that were flooded in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

Turkle, 60, enlisted his daughter, Lane 18, who graduated from Leon High School in May and starts Florida State University in August, to ride along as an assistant movie-camera operator and still photographer.
