Photographer's Note

This is a place where a rich man's dream went bad. In the distant outskirt of Kuala Lumpur a rich man decided to built his dream and ideal housing village for the rich like him to buy. He build an imposing gateway to his real estate complete with decor arches and decorative fencing, terraced the land in tiers to be sold as bungalow lots. He launched a massive promotion with golf facilities thrown in but somehow after the fanfare died everything failed.

I wandered around the area admiring the sunset and photographing it but feeling sad to see such good land go to waste. In what was previously a Security hut on the right of this photo I found a skeletal remain of a dog that must have fallen sick or injured in a fight, the bones neatly place undisturbed. Strands of hairs scatters around the skeleton. It must have died in silence.
