our leader posted this week’s Scavenger List, my heart sank. Where was I going to find that? I pondered this question for a few days
before an idea emerged.
the most likely place to find spirits would be in a graveyard, I headed to the
nearest cemetery and prepared to catch my ghost. Unsure of what I’d see, I certainly wasn’t expecting this
I scurried off, only to fall into a hole camouflaged by tall grass. “Ouch!” Twisting my foot, I cried out in pain as I sank to the
ground. I was helpless and
at the mercy of the spirit world!
the next ghostly soul who appeared was angelic in nature and allayed my fears.
week’s assignment was to hunt for “something that has had a better day.”Our scavenger hunt leader, being the
humorous guy he is, couldn’t resist adding “But no self-portraits!”Very funny.
through Gloversville, I hunted for the perfect subject.Bingo!I went back a few days later to capture my subject in the
late evening light.
as I began shooting, some guy came along and talked my ear off about this old
house.He told me it’s slated to
be demolished (what a shame, he said!), and went on to point out all the
beautiful features of the Victorian architecture.
Whipping out his smart phone, he rambled
on about his love of Victorian style homes as he pulled up a photo to share
with me.The image was of a
beautiful Victorian dwelling that’s for sale in a nearby city.The price?Only $1.6 million, he said…and definitely in much better
shape than this old house!
