I find these pics haunting, yet beautiful. It is proof that Earth will reclaim when we ( humans are gone). The Pripyat, Ukraine ( Chernobyl) most
haunting by far for me due to the nature of why its abandoned. Yet earth & nature reclaiming the land & nursing it back to health. I hope we dont see
any repeat of this incident, sadly I think we will and maybe not that far off. Nothing is permanent in this forever changing world, if only we could
do a better job of looking after what we have.

I once visited the town of Famagusta , Cyprus . Now that place is eerie .
People literally dropped what they were doing to flee an impending Turkish invasion .
Once the playground of the rich and famous , Famagusta is now a ghost town , a shell of it's former self .
I find this one interesting as the government has has wiped this town off the maps, high profile story over here. Ive seen many a story covering this
place & victims of asbestos illness. Find it odd though that you wouldnt find it on maps.
detroit might end up in one of these photo sets at some point here. and likely a few others.
great photo ops though! that would be a fun vacation - shooting abandoned towns, buildings.
thx for sharing.
absolutely beautiful...I love how people can capture images already seen by some to give a whole new perspective..I have seen chernobyl in a view
documentaries but the still images have far more of an impact...Nice job OP..
