Wow that is pretty interesting. So much of the place looks like its literally been locked in time,. chairs and paintings and vehicles that have very little damage...its pretty sad when you think about it. kinda cool from a movie-like or games like quality tho

Yeah, exactly how I felt about seeing stuff just frozen, skyscrapers and open paved area just left.

They evacuated around 150,000 people in basically a week, following the incident. and its been closed since. people just left everything. Just within the last few years Ukranian gvt has opened it up for daytrips, still cant drink the water or stay there.

didnt notice those particularly, did notice all the wierd like child cutout drawinds/art, that seems like it was either done by grafitti/random artists later, or maybe was supposed to add some sort of ambience back in the day. Which images do you think were photoshopped? they could all be fakes for all I know.

All the shadows. They maybe painted on, but they don't look like the nuke shadows from Hiroshima at all.

Could be and art thing though I guess.

Ive been waking up lately and having absolutely no idea when it is. Not just time of day, but even month or time of year. Its really an odd feeling.
