    Post pictures of the most blissful places on earth.

    i wanna travel and do photography when i grow older and retire..
    but not just those very populated places...i want to travel to the most desolate places...starting by this place

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/blinkofaneye/369978249/

    Chernobyl - ghost town due to a nuclear meltdown... in 1986 no one has lived there ever since.... because of the hazardous levels of radiation...( you are allowed to visit it but not stay too long)
    like i heard of a 5 hours span your allowed to stay until your body starts to get affected by it..

    thats the first place anyways....

    anyone else share the same passion?

    I wouldn't call Chernobyl 'blissful'.

    I was away kayaking this weekend and this is where we started: http://www.southlakes-uk.co.uk/userreq/Grasmere0704.jpg Now that's blissful. It's Grasmere in the English Lake District, in case you're wondering.

    Oechinensee is also a lovely lake. Close to Kandersteg in Switzerland. http://img171.imageshack.us/img171/9...inenseeig3.jpg

    Centralia is a town not too far from here that has had an underground coal fire going on since the 60's.

    I went to Dubai last year. It's a fairly busy place but has some nice photo spots.

    Everybody can. It's just a select few who choose to do so.

    It's pretty hard for you americans to go to different countries though.

    For us europeans, a one hour flight will get you to a different country where as in the states a 1 hour flight will get you to another city lol

    Wow! I love decay, destruction, the crap side of town & etc, just love it! The graffiti, the grungy-ness, to me, it's beauty. And one of the places I most disparately want to go to: Chernobyl, it must be the coolest place on the earth.

    Whenever I go away, my photos are of decay, industry, our ruining of the landscape. Most people think it's bad, I think its wonderful
