Amazing Chernobyl pics.. 

Wow, now this is pretty amazing (courtesy Simon). Aparantly there is a "dead zone" city called Pripyat which was built in 1970 and abandoned in 1986 when Chernobyl melted down. It is a photo tour from a lady in the area (daughter of a nuclear physicist) who likes riding in the city on her motorcycle, not having to worry about cars and people.

I've always been kind of fascinated by ruins and places of quiet. Walking through areas of Forest Park that used to be more active, with decaying wood steps and overgrown domesticated bushes, and fiction like Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou. So this is especially interesting, but on another level it is utterly terrifying to think of the cause of the destruction and that it isn't totally safe around there even now..
