Ghosts and the Union

I’ve always been obsessed with ghost stories. I still get excited at the prospect of hearing a new one, and if it’s someone’s personal┬ástory it is guaranteed I will be listening to every word.

There were always rumors the Memorial Union at Indiana University was haunted. Classmates would tell of a little boy, somewhat transparent, showing up in their pictures. Or weird noises. Or mysterious pathways (some of which I explored myself).

I never caught a real ghost on film. But that didn’t mean I didn’t try. And when I still caught no ghosts, I made┬áthem. Ahhh the early days of photography and double exposures/slow shutter speeds.

This was the stairway where the ghost of the boy was said to appear. Not for me.

Fridays are my “post old photos and hopefully do so in a coherent manner” day. You’re welcome (for not overindulging myself and posting some every day).
