The Andy Griffith Threshold is Still Alive in America (video)

Living in LA for the majority of my life, I've almost gotten used to the temporary nature of its evolving concrete landscape.

With a foot in old Hollywood, I'm always looking at the corners, streets, and buildings of Los Angeles but imagining how they appeared during Tinseltown's golden age. Rarely do I get lucky enough to find the past intact and accessible.

Here's a spot I knew existed, but I never imagined I'd find.

I couldn't find an eight-year-old, just a barefoot young adult named Brandon Bolin.

As always, my thanks to Brendon Devore -- my cameraman, editor, and collaborator.
