Pripyat: the Ghost City

Almost 22 years after the Chernobyl nuclear reactor disaster in Ukraine,
nearby abandoned town of Pripyat haunts with its ghostly realness.
In the wee hours of last night,
I found myself playing this video over and over,
perhaps seeking some kind of poetic redemption
to all of our mistakes as mankind.
I concluded that 'modern architecture' is the saddest of them all,
when bereft of its occupants.
Flight over Pripyat
