Postcards from Pripyat, Chernobyl - Someone Flew a Drone Through Chernobyl and the Result is Haunting - - -

Prypiat: Once home to over 50,000 people this Ukrainian city housed the the workers of the Chernobyl nuclear plant until its 1986 meltdown. Given that the city is in what has come to be known as the Zone of Alienation, or the 30 km radius surrounding Chernobyl, it is quite literally dead. These days, however, the government has started allowing tourists due to decreased radiation levels.

Pripyat is the city that was left behind after the Chernobyl disaster in 1986. This picture was pinned from Krzysztof Knapik's website.

"Pirate Tower" of Victoria Beach in Laguna Beach, CA. How I lived in Corona del Mar and never saw this is beyond me. The tower is actually a staircase leading from house above down to beach. Bette Midler lived in the home during the '90s.
