The Haunted Camera - A 2012 Favorite

Street photography isn’t always of people. Sometimes a place has its own story to tell.

Shirley Jackson once wrote, “Silence lay steadily against the wood and stone of Hill House, and whatever walked there, walked alone.” I couldn’t help but remember that quote when I photographed this old mansion from the roadside. I wondered who lived there, what happened inside its walls and whether or not, in the end, I wanted to know.

HDR effects were achieved using Photomatix Pro. Topaz “ghostly” filter applied in Photoshop.

Freelance photographer and ponderer of the unusual. I welcome the presence of mystery and the unknown. Wonder is not absent from the universe, and there is still room for the child in those who haven't yet allowed their hearts to wither to dust.

    1. Glad you like what you see and read, Angel! Part of the magic of photography is its ability to adapt to the mind of the individual viewer. You often see what you most desire to see, and your mind conjures a script for a play uniquely your mind’s own.
