I spent a good part of the day at our local mini-Pripiyat, North Ridge Estates, an upscale building site that had to be abandoned in 2001. It's eerie, and absurd that so much has gone to waste. About three families have stayed behind and, as far as anyone knows, they're thriving. However, cleanup is still in progress as money becomes available. See this article.

excellent. I love the empty chair in front of a vacant house painted with red, white, and blue. Could have a much deeper meaning. I love this picture of yours best, even though you have lots that are my favorites!
