How I love this time of year. The cool darker evenings are so atmospheric after the long (if disappointing) summer. Incense and candles need lighting and there is a distinct calling to venture out into the darkness. Soon I will gather my friends and stalk some lowly graveyards snapping pictures and musing over the grave inscriptions – can’t wait.
To add to our slightly excentric pre-halloween excitement, I just booked up for our little group of amateur ghost hunters to go on our annual trip away.
This year we will be descending upon the beautiful, historic town of Oxford. We’ll only be staying for one night though so we’ve got lots to fit in. We’ve still got a month before we go so I’ve got plenty of time to reasearch.
Last year we sampled the delights of York and I got some awesome orb shots in the séance room in the haunted house. The year before that we were lucky enough to fly to Edinburgh where we stumbled across the awesome Greyfriars Kirkyard, and I fainted like a real drama queen in the middle of the Burke and Hare talk (it’s just a blood sugar thing). I still don’t think anything could possibly top that location, but we’ll just have to wait and see.
