This barbed wire creates so called the "dead zone" around reactor.

How far is reactor from here?

De jure it is 30 kms zone, but de facto reactor is about 50-55 kms (33 miles) from here.

There are towns with no roads

but, also, there are roads with no town, like "Green Cape", the entire town is gone. It only exists de jure on road signs.

This is how it looks de facto..

“Spring2008“

not a single building is left here now, no memorial, nothing that indicates the town was there.

Green Cape is an interesting place. You know it is here, but it is not really. There are roads, bushes, a lake.. but no buildings.

Photographing is difficult in this town, for there is nothing much to photograph .. I mean, only nothingness is left. So much emptiness builds up a creepy feeling, like something evil is hidden in this emptiness..

Nothing left to do but say amen to the Ghost Town that was formerly known as Green Cape. From ashes to ashes, dust to dust, isotope to isotope..

[Footnote: "de jure" is a technical legal term, it means the way they say it is, while "de facto" means the way it really is.]
