Abandoned buildings and a pack of wild dogs

I love old abandoned buildings, today I took this shot as I was making my get-a-way from a guard who was yelling at me and closely approaching on foot. Apparently his job was to chase people away and tell them they cannot take pictures of the old abandoned train station.

A beautiful building, I was able to snap a few pictures before the guard tried to shoo me away. What I found out is that this building is located on private property owned by the Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Center, who knew. (There was no time to adjust my camera for some photogenic moments so all shots are at 1/100, F7.1, ISO100)

A couple of months ago my friend Ms. E and I stumble across this abandoned home in downtown Kuala Lumpur just a few blocks behind the Marriot Hotel. Ms. E would not go in so I had to go it alone.

A little reluctant and senses a little excited I got to the main foyer. It was deadly quiet when I heard a “click-clack, click-clack” in the next room, like claw feet walking across the concrete floor.  Oh crap, all I could think of was the story of the dead homeless man the police found in a deserted alley on the outskirts of town. A wild pack of dogs visited the corps every night to feed, the smell finally alerted passersby.

“Click-Clack, clickity-clack ” Oh damn it, I’m going to be eaten by wild dogs. I froze in my steps and listened, I could hear it breathing in the next room, beads of sweat were building up on my forehead, an eerie feeling, it was time to go, I rushed out the open door into the light and saw a mangy dog scurry away in the opposite direction.

“Get any good shots?” Ms. E said as I got back to the car. “Hey, you are sweating, don’t get any on the upholstery.”
