Capturing San Francisco
Photo 88 of 1230
A few weeks after the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake, George Lawrence captured a remarkable image of the sprawling ruins using his “captive airship” a hand-built, 49-pound panoramic camera suspended from a series of Conyne kites.
To honor George Lawrence’s feat, and to commemorate the centennial of the 1906 earthquake, I re-shot Lawrence’s panorama in collaboration with the Drachen Foundation.
