Christmas Ghost

I’m still trying to get the hang of this darn digital camera. I know I’m going to love it once I’ve figured out all it’s idiosyncrasies.

Last night I went to a Christmas party in Tombstone. Brought along a buddy who is a big Ghost Hunters fan but has never been to visit the town. At the party I introduced her to a former Bird Cage employee who was featured on Ghost Hunters when they visited Tombstone a few years back. Then, after the party, I took her over to Allen Street.

Tombstone in the 21st century is a far cry from the Tombstone of the 1880s. Back then, Tombstone was “Vegas, baby!” Today they roll up the sidewalks at 6 o’clock. However they have done a beautiful job of putting up their Christmas lights, so I decided to play around with the camera and see what would happen taking photos at night.

After snapping a few shots I saw something weird on the left side of the LCD screen just as I snapped the photo. It was one of those “Aha!” moments when you know you’ve captured something unusual. Well, I showed it to my friend, then she starts getting nervous, and I’m having to explain to her that was in considered odd in most places happens everyday in Tombstone. Hey, what can I say? Ethereal mist happens.
