Growing up i got a fascination for post-apocalyptic scenarios, from movies like mad max, hardware, and games like fallout, wasteland and mutant. Later I got a taste for taking photos in Urban Exploration enviroment. So the idea of one day taking a trip to chernobyl as been a a favorite one for a long time. Last month ive got on a plane and went down to ukraine with two friends, and we got a private guided tour in the exclusion zone.

“An area extending 19 miles (31 km) in all directions from the plant is known as the “zone of alienation.” It is largely uninhabited, except for a few residents who have refused to leave. The area has largely reverted to forest. Even today, radiation levels are so high that the workers responsible for rebuilding the sarcophagus are only allowed to work five hours a day for one month before taking 15 days of rest. Ukrainian officials estimate the area will not be safe for human life again for another 20,000 years”

i think there should be games like that nowadays--i watched a video where a woman was explaining her theory that making video-games with real-life scenarios, i.e. oil becoming scarce, nuclear apocalypse, etc., that the players would work together and share ideas on how to survive in those kinds of situations. i thought it was pretty cool--here's a link: [link]

otherwise just search "ted talks jane mcgonigal".

It's very beautiful in a surreal sort of way. Nice capture!
