The ghost town

Check out this site made by a russian girl who visited the area around the Chernobyl disaster. The pictures on the latter pages are truly chilling – it’s hard to imagine the kind of horror that must have been endured in those nearby settlements as the russian military evacuated people from their homes for ever.

Sadly she appears to have staged a few of the pictures, like the gas mask in the crib, for instance, and the fact that her bike is missing in all the city shots would suggest she might be embelishing her story a little, too.

Regardless of the truth behind her tale, the pictures are pretty impressive by themselves.
