Sometimes.. and Only Sometimes

I might sneak in to cemeteries at 3 in the morning.
There might be a spooky figure behind me.
Lets hope it's just a trick of light...
 I might have heard that it was haunted.
I might have heard that the statues move around at night.
I might have worn all black for the occasion.
I felt like a ninja.
My butt might be shrinking...
maybe..
My camera and my phone might have run out of batteries after starting out fully charged.
The lights from the city might have made the sky look red.
There might have been eerie shadows.
There might have crazy floating lights.
But... you never know.

  3. I absolutely love cemeteries.

    Also, regarding your comment, you completely don't fall into that category. I love your photos about your adventures (like this one) or showing all the lovely things you create. :) You're definitely not an empty person, you seem like you have so much depth. You should know by now that you're definitely a great person.

    P.S. Was it cold, and do you believe in souls/spirits/ghosts, etc?

    Dori.

  4. I love cemeteries! I dream about visiting Cemetery Number One in New Orleans... I am so close, I have no excuse not to! I want to see all the above ground tombs and write an 'x' on Marie Laveau's tomb. Have you ever heard about her? Look at this:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marie_Laveau

    It's supposed to be really haunted. Supposedly, according to legend, if you mark an 'x' on her grave, she brings you good luck!

    I also want to visit the Myrtles Plantation. It's a plantation in the middle of Louisiana where this slave supposedly had an affair with her master. She poisoned the wife and children and killed them, so she was hung as punishment. One of the guys from my work told me that you can actually stay there over night in one of the rooms (it's a Bed and Breakfast now) and that the owners leave you there ALONE all night! How cool is that? I would love to go there! Staying over night is kind of expensive (sad face) but the tours of the place are pretty cheap.

    I wish we could go to these places together! You share my love for the supernatural :)

  7. They are some awesome pictures! I haven't snuck into a cemetery at night in ages!!!! I think i might just have to again...

    The lighting in the photos is amazing.

    Cemeteries have walls and gates to keep the living out. but the dead can wander where on earth they like.

    It's like that age-old joke: "Oh look! They built a wall around the cemetery. It won't stop people that are dying to get in..."

    Yeah. Bad joke. lol.

  19. @Emilie Lynne I've been there! Didn't mark an 'X' though, but it was a blast. It's very interesting post-Katrina.

    Rachael, these photos are amazing. They're fun, and eerie, and they don't take themselves too seriously. Exactly what I feel photography should be. :)
