I took this photo last October when Blair and I explored Chernobyl and the Exclusion Zone. We had a great visit. This is from the Pripyat city center. The building in this photo is the center piece of city center and was the cultural center. It has a pool, gym, theater, boxing ring and many other rooms inside it. Directly behind it, is where the carnival was setup before the nuclear disaster. All of the carnival rides including the Ferris wheel, still sit there today. Unfortunately for the citizens of Pripyat, the carnival never happened.
Prior to our Chernobyl trip, I noticed this is a frequently photographed building. So I was determined to capture it in a different way. Therefore, I climbed up on the roof of this walkway to capture it from this perspective.
