Fallen Sun
Before I came to Hiroshima I was like any other average Joe — ignorant about the tragedy happened here 70 years ago. Well, I knew about bombings, kilotons, deaths and human shadows, but I was far from understanding the whole magnitude of the disaster. During Japan trip planning I was not even sure if there is a need to go to Hiroshima. What's there to see, ruins of expo center aka Atomic Dom? But I couldn't guess what would happen to my mind when I stand 500 hundred meter right below the epicenter. I was shocked, almost cried, imagining those people crawling to the banks of Ota river trying to escape a scorching wave of flesh eating heat, shrinking and charring. Can you imaging what kind of animal fear they experienced knowing nothing about such a thing like nuclear blast? "I though sun has fallen…" — one survived girl said. "I can sleep at night no problem" — infamous colonel said.
This infrared shot does not do the justice but it sure does reflect, a fraction but still, the Great Heat.

Grandpa's
Villages of the left bank. Heavily contaminated land under nature jurisdiction. Former human homes shelter lynxes, kestrels, foxes, wolves, mind blowing amount of birds. It's sad that thousands of people were forced to leave, some of them died or got sick, their belonging left to decay, but Chernobyl disaster gave the way to animals. This is the village of Krasno — seven kilometers to Belarusian border and Polesie State Radio-ecological Reserve. This land impressively contrasts with central and west parts of the zone. It has remote hidden farm houses, unique rural traits — Polesie way of life.

Edison 3
Pripyat's community center "Energetik" provided tons of activities for kids and adults: sports, arts, various hobby groups. It was the heart of the city both by location and culturally. New year celebration or a propaganda meeting — people gathered here. Among other fun stuff "Energetik" hosted an insanely popular night club called "Edison 2". I've always wanted to light paint in the city but every time something stopped me. Even though full moon kind of screwed this up I finally did a painting dedicated to "Edison" club.

I've just received my beloved camera from Nikon's repair! Booyah! Before sending it in I was rather sceptical about outcome after all those horror stories about camera maker's service. Prepared myself to farewell a few hundred bucks. But… I'm more than happy with the result! The turnaround was 20 days. Despite that my camera is not on a warranty Nikon fixed a destroyed remote terminal for free and... replaced a cracked setting ring (which they were not suppose to), replaced all rubber grips, updated with some firmware which is not publicly available, did a complete cleaning and sent it back for free shining like cat balls :) Wow! I'm greatly impress with a service like that. Thank you Nikon!

Scorched
That is not fog, that's smoke. The soil is burned to ashes so when you step on it you go ankle deep into scorching mix of send and ash. Fire's hit Chernobyl zone hard this year. It could've been worse if it reached Red Forest aka Rusty (Rizhik) or any other heavily contaminated areas. Many of the best preserved villages are charcoal now. It makes some rangers sad — so many good huts are gone, so many soviet era and rural artifacts. These are fields of Lubianka with a lonely cow belonging to Marmelad — one of the last residents. It's crying to be milked. Soon someone will come so we have to leave — if a villager sees us cops will start a safari.
