Given the planet's lack of actual post-apocalyptic nuclear wastelands, you'd think it would be pretty hard to find places that looked like the setting of a Fallout game. But then, there's always the Mojave desert and Route 66 for that.

Photographer Kevin Balluff - whose work I came across while flipping through the excellent Our Modern Ruins on Flipboard - has taken a series of photos that look like you could stroll right through them in Fallout: New Vegas, talking to/killing everything in your path.


The destruction, the desolation, the 50s Americana, even the abandoned military installations, it's all there. Of course, this kind of stuff was a big inspiration for the design of New Vegas in the first place, so saying the photos look like the game is almost going in reverse!
