    Default A Photo Journal - Journey into OCH. Part 1.

    This is a multi-part photo-journal into my trip into OCH (Old Changi Hospital). I was there from 4:30pm till about 6:00 pm. Extremely creepy, quiet and totally desolated.

    Save for a few dogs barking and the occasional chirp of birds, the silence in there seems almost deafening, swallowing all sound and giving the place an extremely eerie atmosphere...

    Note: This series is abt 30 pictures long, so for those who have no wish to go through them all, click on my pbase gallery below and view all the thumb nails... The only advantage here is you get the commentaries...

    Another thing you might notice is the fact that a few of the shots are blurred. Thats due to handshake. I think you can guess as much why.... Coupled with the fact that the ligting condition weren't all that great and the aperture/shutter speed were adjusted to compensate, it wasn't really ideal.. but i tried to make do. Best i could do in those condition...

    Cheers.

    I decided to walk on...

    And then these words, which were written on the side of the same hut, which i presumed, were written by a marker, spelled out one of the reasons why i wasn't supposed to be in there....



    The reddish stain didn't really comfort me....

    As i stood in the courtyard, the buzzing of insects, the cries of the cicadas and the calls of the birds seem comforting enough...

    An old tattered umbrella lies there, it's framing slowly rusting away and as i stood in the lobby, the sounds and cries seemed to slowly quieten down...

    I turned right and spied a flight of steps....



    I've never felt more alone... The silence is very, uncomfortable....
