    Camera Strangeness In Co.Down

    I used to love taking photographs on a film camera, especially of old, forgotten places. Blogs like Abandoned Ireland enthralled me, with their ethereal depictions of old dwellings and businesses lost to time itself.

    The Only Ghost Photo I Ever Found Convincing. What Do You Think?

    These photos were taken by holiday makers in 1988 at the Hotel Vierjahreszeiten in Maurach, Austria. On the last night of a holiday they decided to take a group photo, they put the camera on a table and set the self timer so they could all be in it. For the first photo the flash did not go off...

    Do You See What I See?

    I was doing some genealogical sleuthing on my husband's paternal line and looked up a house in New York where his great-grandfather had lived. (His name was Cornelius Hayes and amazingly, the house was still there. He lived in this house in 1898.) So, from Google maps I have a screen shot of...

    Ghosts & Cameras

    If we accept the popular idea of ghosts and poltergeists as disembodied spirits of some kind, or demons perhaps (whatever they may be), why are they so afraid of cameras? The body of anecdotal evidence for sightings of every kind is massive yet the credible footage of 'spirits' in action is...

    Your All-Time Favourite Ghost Photos

    Mine has to be this one In 1982, photographer Chris Brackley took a photograph of the interior of London's St. Botolph's Church, but never expected what would appear on the film. High in the church's loft, seen in the upper right-hand corner of his photograph, is the transparent form of what...
