Here is another video from our series on photographic processes!

It’s amazing (and sometimes heartbreaking) what we find when we start sifting through the detritus that accumulates with the passage of time.
Take this series of images, for example. This sequence was photographed in 1978 by my late Uncle. The scene is the fire that gutted the so called “Electric Building” in Balboa Park. This building housed one of my favorite places to visit when I was a child, The San Diego Air & Space Museum. It was a devastating loss for me (and many other San Diegans as well).
