Slum in Bandar Seri Begwan, Brunei

Slum in Bandar Seri Begwan, Brunei


One of the most beautiful buildings I’ve seen on my trip is the Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque in Brunei. Directly across the street is this. A dump of plastic bottles and slum houses on stilts. I literally just rotated the camera on my tripod and didn’t move the legs at all to take this photo. This is about a mile away from the Royal Palace where the Sultan of Brunei, one of the richest men in the world, lives.
