Jan 2007 : Saturday
Wow I was surprised and humbled to see I was nominated for the 2007 Bloggies in the Best Photography section. I have some tough competition there and don’t know if we can beat ‘em… but we can give it a whirl eh? So if you have an extra few seconds, I would appreciate your vote and a recommendation to your friends as well.
In the next few weeks, I hope to post some fresh pictures of Chernobyl, where I will spend the weekend in the exclusion zone, visiting a few ghost towns that were once designed as Soviet panaceas. Most, like Pripyat, have now abandoned after radiation. My mom thinks I am crazy for going, but my D2X has this sweet Geiger counter that I built after watching last season’s 24.
I will also be posting shots of Kiev, Ukraine, and the old town of Kharkov on the Russian border in coming weeks. I should also add some new pictures from Amsterdam, since I am headed there for a casual game convention. After that, I might be going to Iceland to get a few of those images from that otherworldly place. So stick around, vote, and thanks for the support!
