    There is nowhere to hide from rain in Ghost Town.

Up on the roof

    From here, the shining cloud above the reactor must have been a staggering sight.
    Standing on the roof of the highest building in this empty town brings a feeling of being completely alone in the world - like this whole town is.

    Time stands still in Ghost Town.
    Maybe it is because the clocks here don't measure time - they measure radiation levels.

    There is no phone service. Cellular phones don't work either.

    The day after the accident, this place on the bridge provided a good view of the gaping crack in the nuclear containment vessel that was ruptured by the explosion. Many curious people came here to have a look and were bathed in a flood of x-rays emanating directly from the inside of the glowing nuclear core.

    It is time to thank you all for reading this.
    The last photos are of the town kindergarden.
    There are hundreds of little gas masks, a teachers diary and a last note saying that their walk on Saturday has been canceled due to some unforeseen contingency.
    Farther photos don't need my comments, they tell the the Ghost Town's story in a way that no words can.
