As it turned out, I was virtually at the earthquake epicenter when I shot this photograph looking into a ground surface marked with cryptic signs of subterranean features. Less than twelve hours later, at 4:31 in the morning on January 17, 1994, a blind thrust fault, now called the Northridge fault, gave way 18.4 kilometers below the surface, collapsing freeways, offices, houses, and apartment buildings.
