While it may have been a bonus assignment, I don’t feel comfortable placing my ghost photos here. Instead I’ve posted them here http://siegelsphotographyinutah.tumblr.com/search/Ghost
These ghost pictures are a little different in that unlike the requirements I feel that graveyards aren’t to be used for random ghost pictures. First off its overly cliche, secondly it is more or less disrespectful. For me if I was to do a ghost story in a graveyard there would need to be a story that honors the dead and doesn’t just make them fun. I believe a graveyard is a place to speak on history and stories, it’s not a place for disrespect and the mundane. People I’ve known are buried there that I know it would hurt my family members to do such a shoot there, so why would I do that to anyone else?
As for the ghost story I created, it isn’t completely true. Yes some of the incidents did actually happen, but almost if not all of it is dismissable. Doors and houses shrink and stretch as temperatures change, leading doors to slam shut or open without much or any effort and this goes for floors as well which is where the noise comes from. As for the mysterious feelings there are two explanations, the first is the psychology of the mind and the second is higher electromagnetic fields. One of the areas does have higher EMFs.
There have never been mysterious shadows or figures, but the incident with the light cover has never been debunked as all possible suspects were nowhere near it. As for the mysterious messes, there were kids in the house…that explains more than you’ll ever know.
So that’s the end if you’ve any creative ideas to add to this story or any thoughts feel free to comment, I’d love to hear it, I may be skeptical, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t like a good ghost story.
