Dunes Implosion 2of3

Dunes is History

I had my trusty 35 mm Nikons with a full complement of lenses, a Airri 'S' 16mm movie camera with 400 ft mags, and Panasonic 300 CLE professional for videotape, some tri-pods and some trusty plastic bags to cover the Dunes implosion. I wasn't shooting for anybody but me, because all my great memories of the Dunes are in pictures. I shot the last Nevada above ground test, (atomic blast) from the top of the hotel and I was there assisting the life magazine photographer when the First Man Walked on the Moon.The first picture I ever had published in Playboy magazine was taken there of the lounge show. I went to many celebrity parties there, a weddings of models & friends, I even shot pictures of a impromptu orgy there............. - RSH
