|New "Weird Encounters" book, including my photography
||[Sep. 22nd, 2010|12:23 pm]
Weird Encounters recently came out, which is the newest book in the "Weird" series. |
This one is about tales of ghosts and the paranormal.
They used some of my photography in it.
I took this photo of the book when it arrived in the mail:
My photography in the book includes:
Olustee, Florida Battlefield. Taken in 2003.
A smoke ring from a cannon firing.
St. Augustine, Florida lighthouse. 2008.
On that night, I had originally went to St. Augustine to photograph the carousel there,
which has a dark history. They had a story about it for the book, and asked if I'd get
some photos of it to go along with it. You can view the photos I took of the carousel
that night at: http://matt-ferrell.livejournal.com/213344.html
Unfortunately, it seems that story didn't make it into the final cut of book,
so neither did those photos. The same night that I took those carousel photos though,
I decided to head to the lighthouse before heading home. When I arrived,
I found out the TAPS "Ghost Hunters" crew was inside actually doing an investigation.
I snapped some shots, then headed home. When I sent the carousel photos to the book,
I also included the lighthouse ones as well. And even though the carousel didn't
make it onto the book, guess the lighthouse photos did. =)

Grab a copy of the book at your local bookstore. =D
