First Aveune Parkade Demolition

Brian Ray
Last year the parkade along First Avenue NE in Cedar Rapids was destroyed to make way for the new Cedar Rapids convention center. In order to document this event we set up several cameras including a GoPro inside the blast zone and a Canon DSLR with a 400mm F 2.8 lens. We had a second GoPro mounted on a fence underneath the parkade's sign but it's video was corrupted when the building knocked over the fence it was clamped on. When the fence fell and the camera hit the ground the card popped out and I lost everything. Some times you win and sometimes you lose but it's always fun to try new things.
