Dilapidated buildings in KL had a strange charm

I think I picked up photography after I went to Tokyo. Everything was new, fascinating, so I decided to snap photos of them and post them online. To share with others the views of a foreigner in Japan.

It's no coincidence also, that I got into photography around the same time as filmmaking. Somehow after I started making films, things around me just felt a little different, and I just cannot resist the urge of taking snapshots of things I liked, at that very moment.

These photos were taken yesterday when Ming Jin and I, along with the current Greenlight Pictures team, went to KL to do some research for our upcoming film project.


This Cheras Ria. It had a nice view of the city.

There was an abandoned house nearby.

An abandoned mansion?

Was a little startled to see a dude sitting there, smoking by himself. He didn't notice us.

The funny thing is that, after coming back to Malaysia a few days ago, I cannot resist the urge of snapping photos of random things. Somehow what was once my home became a little unfamiliar to me, a little more exotic, a little more colourful.
