Yesterday, I went down to the Black Bings just to capture the area and see what changes have happened in the place. As a young kid, I used to go down there all the time as it was a good place to climb and explore, even though you got maukit.
I knew nature has slowly been reclaiming the area back, but when I visited the Black Bings, I didn’t expect the area to have changed that much. For a start you can no longer walk in-between the bings as this area is now completely covered in water, while the rest of the bings are all completely overgrown.
While I was down there, you could see a lot of deer tracks and other animals (foxes, rabbits, etc.) so it seems that the Black Bings have turned into a host spot for a variety of wildlife and nature. I tried to capture as much images as possible but was limited as the area is largely inaccessible in the central area.[nggallery id=51]
