Weekend Adventure

Rainy Weather.. A Stairway with old leaves ..Abandoned Hospital.. broken glass peices. broken windows ..broken doors ..Walls with paint coming out of it.. Lonely long passages.. water dripping on the sealing ..green moss on the floor... Anthills on the grills of the windows..unsued lifts..broken sinks..rusted pipes.. A perfect plot for a Hindi movie i must say ,but it was not the case . I along with five other people (Amit ,Ashish ,Imran ,Manju and Sham) went to Old changi Hospital near Changi Village on Sunday for a photo shoot out !! The place was interesting ..a perfect bhoot bangla (Haunted house ).

We climbed untill the 4th floor and explored using our cameras floor by floor. Me with my Panasonic FZ5 and Manju with his Sony DSC H1. All others had DSLRs (I should get one but i don't when will that day come !). We saw ICUs, Common rooms ,Geriatric Ward,Operating theaters , Old Lifts , Nurse's Tea Room etc, etc . The ward rooms which once upon a time might have been filled with hospital beds and patients on them ,was a empty hall with water dripping from the ceiling , rusty pipes , old swtich boards and some writings ( Someone Died here ) on the wall which was recently painted !
I did some adventure to climb the ladder and reached the terrace of the building. Clicked some shots of colorful saling boats and planes landing through the clouds !!
We found lot of bottles of canned drinks inside the building , i guess lot of people who come near the Changi Sailing club come to visit this old building too ! No wonder there were so many bottles and writing on the walls of the building !! By the time we finished exploring the building and capturing it in our camera's i was tired and hungry.. and it was getting dark ..so i didnt want to join any sort Ghost meet up in case if they have one ;-) !!!
P.S : The lonely fish in the fish tank is still alive and when i am there in the house i go ten times to see whether it is swimming or not !! Extra precautious you see !!

Well, if you go for SLRs, have a look at Canon 20D. I heard that's really doing good...
BTW I am also waiting for such a time to come to roam with one 20D :)
