ghostly photos of the abandoned city of pripyat.
the city lies less than 5 km from the chernobyl nuclear power plant and has been evacuated shortly after the disaster at reactor number four.
amazing how nature claimed the city back after just about two and a half decades.

i guess most of you were relatively old when the disaster happened... could you share what you recall for people like me who were born after the catastrophe?

I remember we didn't hear about it until a couple of days after the accident so everyone was plenty worried after the extent of the disaster unfolded. It was raining the days after and the wind brought some of the fallout straight here. Lots of restrictions on natural foods; lake fish, mushrooms, berries, game... all off the menu for a decade at least sad2.gif

yeah my parents and my friend's parents told me similar stories. they had to hide indoor - windows shut - due to fallout. luckily it wasn't that bad. definitely could have been worse.
wondering what's going to happen to fukushima and the people who lived there and japan. :/ they're ƒükkêd .

An eerie looking place it is, it would be a great shooting location for a movie. It's probably been used many times already.
