    This photo is a result of about 1000 photos I took in an abandoned, "haunted" hotel, in a tiny and dying Texas town off the beaten path. I used a tripod, remote shutter release/timer...and walked up and down this creepy hallway at dusk about 30 times. This was the second to the last photo and came out of the camera just like this.It made me feel like I had traveled back in time when this hotel was burning down. Or into the future. Where I'm the guest ghost in ghost town's ghostly hotel.

    I was drawn to this frame time and time again. It really caught my eye. Both the location and the expression on the mans face tell a strong story. A fear of ghosts. You really have embraced this topic and nailed it with this frame. You see, it pays off to practice!
