Back to Preston Castle Pt 2

The past is a ghost, the future is a dream, and all we ever have is now.
Bill Cosby

Apparently like many places with an interesting past, Preston Castle now has it's believers that it is haunted. It has all the right elements, despair, murder and age. As I mentioned before parapsychologists came to investigate it and they have found the proverbial orbs, temperature changes and even reports of unexpected smells/sounds/voices. I haven't experienced anything, but it doesn't mean that something isn't there. I hold with the oft quoted Hamlet, "There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy."

My tripod ball head gave up the ghost towards the end of the shoot and I had to try to get what photos I could with flash and other means. The photo above had camera shake, but with an application of cross processing film, I ended up with an almost impressionistic piece. Just evidence that sometimes our mistakes bring interesting discoveries.
