"Ghost Story" was originally taken by me in the fall of 1982 at an old family haunt, Johnsons' Canyon Campground (Alberta) on 35mm fuji camera film. It is my most favourite picture from the period as I was doing a lot of experimental "long exposures", with the result of creating ghost effects. What I would do is set the camera on a tripod, use very "slow" film for "low grain" and close the exposure down to a minimum. Then the shutter was set on a timer and once we heard it "go off" we would count to 3 seconds, and then leap out of the bounds of the imaging "frame". So this is a picture of me on the left, and my best friend of the time, Bob Maheux, who I regretfully lost contact with in 1992, and would dearly love to see again. So the Ghost Story goes on in more ways than one.
