April 26 marks the 24th anniversary of the world's worst nuclear accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in Ukraine. I traveled there in 2008 and shot a series of creep-tacular photos.
This picture shows the abandoned children's play park & Ferris wheel. Children have not played here since 1986.
