Rarely am I on the other side of the lens. Call it bashfulness. On a recent trip to the Titan 1 Missile Silo, however, a Mr. Thomas M. from Pennsylvania was somehow able to sneak me in a shot without my knowledge. I walked to my door today to find a thank you gift (Tom and another explorer crashed at my home for a few days to explore). Inside of the envelope was a print.

If you ever wonder what it’s like, this is the typical outfit on a journey. Sometimes the respirator is absent; other times it’s a necessity. My lungs are precious. And considering that this was a missile silo that once contained, benzine, hydrazine, diesel fuel, asbestos, and PCBs, I figured a respirator was a good measure. The only issue was taking pictures, so I often pulled it away from the face to get that perfect shot (as seen here). The risks I take for that ‘shot.’ If you’re a photographer, too, I’m sure you understand.

    Asbestos is one hell of a health hazard that is why we have removed all asbestos based insulation in our homes.
