Scott Black had been at work since 6 a.m. - and nearly 14 hours later, he was finally leaving.
Rising floodwaters last Tuesday had kept the pharmacist and amateur photographer holed up in his Louisiana office. It didn't flood, but the water was getting uncomfortably close.
"Approaching our building but still a mile and a half to two miles down the road," Black tells The Dodo. "It was rising slowly but steady and we did have some concern of the water getting to us."
Just about half an hour from Baton Rouge, there was plenty of devastation in this community. There were also plenty of folks rising to the occasion, helping their neighbors - including the animals.
Black saw, and captured, one such powerful instance as he was leaving work that day.
