Amidst the flickering light of an old adobe house up in a hill lies an abandoned gate seem lost and forgotten in time by the people who once lived there. Late afternoon joggers and strollers pass by this old gate everyday expecting new tenants have moved in the old brick house. To their frustration and disappointment, the house has never been occupied for more than a decade now. The old gates turned into decay with its walls cluttered with cracks and its paved and narrow road covered with green grass and slime.

Lately, people passing by this house start to feel uneasy with wild stories -- invented or unreal -- becoming urban legends.

Intrigued by these stories, I tried my luck passing by one late afternoon and took a shot of the old gate -- just in case something comes out to disprove the wild tales that made it an instant celebrity. Nothing seem to be abnormal from the picture that came out -- except...

the old gate lamp -- third from the foreground, hanging by its neck, beside the old gate --seem to turned itself ON! -- despite the house having no electricity supply for more than 10 years. The other two lamps are off.

You be the judge...
