The Real STALKER 2

Some time ago we had some photos of Russian guys playing S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game for real. They had a lot of cool hardware like AK-47 guns and Soviet style gas masks. For those who doesn't know the game it's game play takes place in Chernobyl, at the powerplant blow up site and so do those guys - they play this game right in Chernobyl where the ground and some metal structures still hold
unreal doses of radiation and people don't live there yet, and it's said they won't in the nearest fifty years. /p> All this don't stop them. This year they have better hardware, better costumes - just like a real thing. Coming from different parts of Russia and other countries just to participate or see this with their own eyes. You can check it out now.

Russia, 1896, in Color

Russia. 100 Years Ago. Again. We had it from Russian photographer Prokudin-Gorsky whose photos are being stored in the Library of Congress in USA, but now it's totally different case. Photos were made by Czech photographer while on his travel thru Russia back in
the year 1896. Most of them were lost later due to two wars in Europe and other tragical things but some still managed to survive till our year 2009 and now we can see them here. It's a big pity that there are only such a few of them left.
