Ummm.... I don't want to be a buzzkill, but with all the fuzziness and the poor quality, what am I looking at? I might see a ghost, but there is nothing that really.... er.... I can't tell.

I posted these over at another forum... but I thought I'd share 'em here too-- since we all enjoy the same things. These are some photos of creepy places I've been and/or places my family has taken photos for me. I have more... but... not uploaded at this time...

It's down for me as well, I get an error message (it looks like one, at least) in an Asian language, and that's all.

I think it is just a web site that is gone and someone else has something there. Maybe archive.org has it.
Halloween.com since 1994

Okay, it does look like it, I'll try to search for that on waybackmachine or something similar. Thanks for the tip!

I actually thought I had a ghost photo once. It wasn't really a ghost, but orbs. I was taking photos along a purportedly haunted stretch of old Route 66 when it happened. Then I noticed those same orbs in other photos that I shot in places that were not supposedly haunted. As it turned out, the 'orbs' in question were caused by a few specks of dust on my CMOS chip.

Also, in this day and age of photo shop and online fakery, I tend to be skeptical. As for the link posted above, all I was able to get was that "hmm" error message again. I tried it 3 times just to be sure so I think Halloween.com is right. The web site is probably defunct.

Did I ever tell you guys about the time we were working in a really old hotel here in town? The Hotel Del Coronado. Well known to be haunted. A buddy I was working with was from out of town, and I was telling him the story of the ghost. He refused to believe anything I said.

Towards the end of the job, the building engineer let us go up into the main dome above the ballroom. Back in the old cowboy days it was a catwalk which looked out over the stage but was since closed off by a ceiling. The inside of this dome is something very few people get to see. I started taking pictures of the old construction. My buddy saw me taking these pictures, standing right next to me. In some of the pictures you could see the windows on the outside of the dome.

Me, being the evil photoshopper that I am, I took one of the pictures of a window with a chair in front of it and placed a transparent image of a Victorian woman sitting in the chair. Emailed the photo to my buddy and said he'll never believe what I caught. He was astonished! He saw me taking the pictures and that lady was not there at the time. Not to mention it's obviously a ghost. To this day, some 15 years later, he still believes the picture was real.

Unfortunately, the advent of photoshop makes all such images suspect but I've had a lot of fun with this one. Gotta wonder how many people he's showed the picture to. I'm sure it's helped add to the aura of the Hotel Del being haunted. My bad.

Here's the image I created. Can't believe I still have it.

Halloween fakery doesn't bother me at all. We all do it to an extent. I 'photo shopped' a few of my Bartonville Insane Asylum photos a few years back (before the fire of 15) to use as a Halloween decoration, but everyone knew it was a fake made for the purpose of decoration. Your photo would also make a great one to hang on the wall in October along with other Halloween decorations.

As for the prank you pulled on your friend, I did something similar. When I lived in Dwight Illinois, I made up a legend about the ghost of Abraham Lincoln's funeral train being sighted rolling down the main railroad tracks through town every April. April of 1865 was when Lincoln was assassinated. Anyway this was before I ever posted anything to the internet, and I had purchased my very first computer. I posted to a message board about it, and the next thing I knew, there were ghost hunters with cameras and a lot of 'looky loos' hanging around the tracks. When I asked what they were doing there they told me they were hoping to catch a vision or a photo of Abraham Lincoln's funeral train.

As far as I know, ghost hunters and 'legend trippers' still flock there every April.

You started an urban legend, Mike!

Yes, it appears I did start an urban legend, but I found out a few years later that there are actually abandoned railroad spurs, bridges and the like between Washington DC and Springfield Illinois where Lincoln's funeral train was sighted, and those legends date back a lot further then my little prank did. Oh, by the way, that train actually did pass through that town, which is why I made up that story.
