A Haunting

She walks the attic

When I saw today’s WordPress Daily Prompt of Ghost, the first thing that came to mind is that the expectation is probably for folks to write about a ghost or their imaginings of a spectral apparition of sorts…  A quick look through some of the posts shows that to be the case.

So rather than writing about a ghost, I’ll share the image of a ghost wandering through an old Mill building in Clinton, Massachusetts…

A Haunting

This building has a rich history, filled with hard work under difficult conditions, in which accidents were not altogether rare.  It would appear that one of the workers during those times has not found true rest yet, as she continues to traverse the attic in the mill…

This image was captured with a Canon EOS 1D MkIII using an EF 24-105mm f/4L lens.  Exposure settings were 15 seconds at f/16 and 100 ISO.

Coming out of the water…

Another episode of Half-Light, the Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge . This one is a little more ethereal or even spectral, with a nod to this day in one religion.

Spectral Apparition

Marcellus to Horatio and Bernardo after seeing the ghost:

Some say that ever ‘gainst that season comes
Wherein our Saviour’s birth is celebrated,
This bird of dawning singeth all night long;
And then, they say, no spirit dare stir abroad,
The nights are wholesome, then no planets strike,
No fairy takes, nor witch hath power to charm,
So hallow’d and so gracious is the time.

— Hamlet Act I, Scene I
William Shakespeare
