    actually singapore have such places....but difficult to access without alarming people in the vicinity. After the 911 incident, paranoia everywhere....people see photographers walking among ruins, they will start calling police to report. haaa

    which explains so much security over abandoned buildings.

    there are however some which can still be accessed, pity thrillseekers go there and vandalize those places as well.


    i see some foreign countries website, photographers could take beautiful long exposure shots of such abandoned places. Very nice.

    On of the most engaging ways to shoot MXX in derelic place is to pose her with long hair covering the face after dark lit with candle lights.

    One of the MXX actually walked into a wall and never to return again to do more TFCD. Maybe our P&P skill is not to her liking?

    I think you are referring to Pulau Tekong Kechil. I'd been there once many years ago just to stay for the night. Buildings with a lot of plant growth around it so moving around may be difficult. The walls are filled with graffiti, obviously by people who passed by there, mostly student groups I gather.

    It'd be nasty if such things happened to other abandoned places.

    Someone called?

    The most surreal abandoned place I've been was inside Jurong Road Track 22. With the abandoned huge brickworks, entire abandoned kampongs, tracks that stretch forever... But all are gone now. Sadly my recce companion didn't wanted to go into any of the kampongs or brickworks, so I just shot from outside.

    There's an old building in JB, abandoned for over 30 years inside the Istana grounds.

    Track 22, quite a distance from Bulim. We bumped into an old uncle cycling from an endless track. I asked where the track led to. He said Bulim. Google Earth just updated photos, showing Track 22. The chimneys of the brickworks are still there. Kampongs most probably gone liao. I last went in 2 years ago.

    The JB building is inside Taman Istana, 2 storeys, yellow, with a large plaza in front of it. It's near a car park.



    Be very careful where you step, literally. As some of floorboards are rotten, and parts of the 2nd floor had caved it.
