In early June I took a trip out west to shoot a number of stories in the Los Angeles and Las Vegas area.
One of those stops was at a fascinating, bank-owned, underground bunker home built in the 70s.
Situated only a few minutes outside of the famous Las Vegas strip, the home looks like another normal suburban home in the neighborhood–but what hides underneath (through a boulder entrance) is a huge underground cave, complete with it’s own swimming pool, an “outdoor space” and barbecue that vents through a fake tree above ground.
It was a sweltering 106 degrees above ground, but down below–a cool, and comfortable 70–and it was like taking a step into a time machine.
