Entering the Secret Soviet Nuclear Bunker

Okay this is PROBABLY the last request -- but I do, with all humility and Buddhist prostration, ask for your vote for the Bloggies! I'm in the "Photography" section.

I am headed to the Ukraine today. I'll be spending the weekend in Chernobyl taking pictures, which I have gotten special permission to enter the Exclusion Zone. There are several ghost towns around Chernobyl, like Pripyat, which was designed as a Soviet communist panacea, but now a radiated husk of a city. I will also be in Kharkov, on the Russian border, as well as Kiev. I hope to find some interesting shots for you!
