Radiation Hazard

Into the abandoned radome with the fisheye, dodging the thunderstorm that passed through.  This is on the second floor, with the hand-pull elevator into the dome.  The most complete abandoned radome building I’ve ever been in—it was empty, but untouched.  Loving the industrial black and yellow safety tape everywhere, it prevented me smacking my head […]

The Air Force Station

    In the summer of 2015 I wandered into this wide open former Air Force station on a Nevada mountain top for an exceptional night of shooting. I’ve tried to return several times since, only to find black, government-issue Suburbans parked up there that scared me off. The last visit I slipped in the […]

21st Century Posture

That gas station, you know, the one in that big empty stretch between Beatty and Goldfield, Nevada.  Late at night, lit with red flashlight under the full moon.
