Haunted + TiltShift Generator

We've been playing around a lot with some of the photo apps available on our iPhones - which led to the discovery of a cool app by Art&Mobile called TiltShift Generator or TiltShiftGen. The app basically allows you to take any existing photo and add varying degrees of blur (along with radial / linear blur ...

The Ghost Ship Speaks: Star of India

The Star of India is a tremendously atmospheric ship with a long and storied past. Someone or something appears to remain behind, following visitors and apparently answering questions. But I am getting ahead of myself . . . a little history first: "The Star of India is the world's oldest active ship. She began her ...

The Frustrations of a Ghost Hunter

Paranormal investigators face dilemmas, quandaries, and philosophical conundrums, but they also must expect tremendous frustration. We tend to forget how long it took for us to become comfortable with what, for many people, is odd or downright weird.

Anyone who considers herself a paranormal investigator--that is, anyone committed enough to spend the entire night in cold, dark and often disturbing buildings/ships/homes/hospitals, knows one fact above all else: whatever we find, or whatever finds us, is frustratingly vague. We catch snippets of voices on digital recorders, but we often do not hear the same ...

During an investigation aboard the RMS Queen Mary, Los Angeles Paranormal Association documented some strange activity in the engine room, near "shaft alley".

Spectre at the Pool?

We were attempting to contact the various ghosts said to reside in the Queen Mary pool room--principally "Jackie". It was very late, and I was certain that nothing was in the pool room but us tired investigators. After examining my pictures, I wasn't convinced that we were alone there. I took two pictures where this ...
