Fallout Shelter

Fallout Shelter — Tunnel to Generator Room. (Fuji Neopan 400. Nikon F100. Noritsu Koki.)

The tunnel in the above image leads to the generator room, where all the juice for my father’s fallout shelter is made. (For background, click here.)

Fallout Shelter — Well Pump. (Fuji Neopan 400. Nikon F100. Noritsu Koki.)

The well pump isn’t really the subject I had in mind when I took this photo. I was looking more at that old flannel jacket. My father was wearing it the very first day of the shelter cycle, when he embarked on his twenty-year journey to tame the future. He still wears the old jacket when he’s in the shelter — because it really gets cold down there.

So here he is: my father. Looks pretty normal, doesn’t he? So, with everything you’ve read and seen, what do you think of him?

  4. The shot of the tunnel has a very cool, Art Deco-y feel to it. As for your dad? Hey, he’ll have the last laugh.

  5. Everyone needs a project. While not everyone is building end of the world type shelters, you may be surprised by the number of people who make preparing for survival in dire straits, a hobby.

    Your father sounds like an interesting person.
