Holes in Things

After scoring this varsity letter at the Golden Nugget flea, I found myself sifting through a dusty box of old photographs. Nothing really struck me (it was mostly pics of Persian rugs and sculpture, perhaps from an archive at a museum) until I came across this photo.

It stopped me in my tracks. On the back, it had a big official-looking stamp: "Nuclear Tests, Nevada, 1962."

I got home, did a little research, and figured out that it's the Sedan Crater at the Nevada Test Site near Area 51. I got it for a buck.

It's terrifying and beautiful all at once. I just can't stop thinking about it.
