The USSR - Echo Location - Grant McLaughlin

1 - Establishing shot of present-day Pripyat, forest abounding and the reactor in the background (not unlike the image here).  Let's say it's winter, approaching sundown (if not a little bit beyond).  Birds fly in the sky above the city.

CAPTION: Echoes of the Soviet Union are by no means hard to come by.

2 - On the (in?)famous Ferris wheel.  An elk stands nearby, looking up towards a sound off-panel.

CAPTION: But nowhere are they louder than under the shadow of Reactor 4.

3 - A pack of wolves run through the bumper cars towards the Ferris wheel (visible in the background, not unlike this photo).

CAPTION: For while ghosts can be found most anywhere one dares to look.

4 - The wolves have downed the elk and ear tearing at its carcass.  One wolf looks up towards the reader, its eyes bright in the night.

CAPTION: It is only here that they glow.

  1. This sounds like the start of a horror story of some kind. Radioactive attack wolves?
