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. =)
