Appeal for ghost pictures

This is a bit cheeky, but if you don't ask, you done get so the saying goes.
My son is a tour guide at the Royal Albert Hall and does his own walking tours of London. I have provided some images for his website http://www.everydaylondon.co.uk/#

This morning I got an appeal for images to illustrate his ghost tour. Looking through my files I am not sure I can help, but if anyone wants to help him out, he needs images that could suggest ghostly things, misty London scenes ETC.

Can anyone help him out?

Re: Appeal for ghost pictures

Organize an Oly outing with him as the guide. Each photographer must submit those spooky images..but thinking of that, you can't use Oly cameras. They are too good. you need those dead cameras to take images of spooks.

Re: Appeal for ghost pictures

Perhaps you need people with old bellows type cameras, preferably with slight light leaks, so as to create 'spooky' images?

Re: Appeal for ghost pictures

This would be a great opportunity to experiment with all the techniques of double exposures, Live Time Composites, as well as all the other post processing.

I'm sure I can find a model willing to be a "ghost"

My son is a guide at RAH so may be aware of the RAH stories, but have passed them on to him regardless. Thanks.

I like "The Stage" best! And you may not realise it, but you could have been beheaded in Britain until 1973....... so the ghosts may not be as old as you think!

Re: Appeal for ghost pictures

My son says he will happily take some photos in return for a play on the RAH organ!

(Currently second biggest in the UK after Liverpool Anglican. And it has a 64' Resultant stop. )
