I Want to Take Photos Like This

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 17 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

I’m not much of a history buff. There is one exception to this: The Cold War. For whatever reason, I love everything about the Cold War. Granted, I didn’t really have live in it (although I was born during the tail end) and thus I don’t understand the fear of living in a world where you might wake up the next day to a nuclear holocaust. I still find it fascinating.


I like looking at pictures taken that show the abandoned cites and towns. It’s almost like a time machine. The city frozen in a perpetual state of emptiness. Nothing changing, just aging. Sleeping giants.


I want to take a trip to Russia and spend time absorbing this and recording this. I want to take photos like this.
