I know there are so many people who don’t get it, but one of my favourite hobbies of late is ghost hunting.
There are many reasons I have taken a liking to ghost hunting. It’s a great way of meeting like minded people. For those few hours, it doesn’t matter what job you do, where you live, whether you have children or how much make up you wear (especially as you spend so much time in the dark!). The youngest person could be 18 with no upper age limit and it’s so refreshing to be in this kind of environment. You’re all there for the same thing, and that’s the focus.
Some people on ghost hunts identify as mediums or sensitives. Some have experienced strange things themselves. Others have been dragged along by someone else and others are just intrigued by the unknown. It doesn’t really matter why you’ve come – for those few hours at least you all have something in common and may experience something completely unique together.
For me it’s something I’ve always been interested in, and after my first proper ghost hunt at Fort Amherst in December 2018, I became hooked. I’ve lost count of how many I’ve done now but I honestly love it and don’t want to stop any time soon.
Another reason I enjoy it so much is that I get to see so many historical sites and buildings in a completely different way to most people. Whether it’s a fort, bunker, theatre or a museum, they each have their own unique history which I find fascinating.
When something happens to you or a group of people it’s fascinating. I enjoy trying to find a logical (or “normal”) explanation, but when one can’t be found, I find it so intriguing.
I want to use this site to document some of the unusual photos I have taken on these nights. I’m not saying that they show ghosts or spirits, just that they are unexplained.
I’d like to say a big thank you to the groups I go out with regularly – you know who you are. Thank you for allowing me to get involved, encouraging me and building my confidence along the way. The people on ghost hunts have played such a big part in my experiences and giving me the opportunity to have anything to document- so again, thank you! I’ll be forever grateful!
I hope whoever visits the site finds it somewhat interesting.
