The Accuracy of Pictures

Here's a picture taken from the forest trail between Tasek Lama and Markucing.It seems to show a traditional-style house nestling in the forested hills. But actually, that is not accurate.

Here's what the same building looks like from the other side. In fact, it is a huge building. It is the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Brunei, and we can just see the top of it from the forest trail.Pictures often deceive us. Unlike words, of course, which just tell the simple truth.
