Jolene Lupo‘s modern take on spirit photography involves shooting bursting water balloons at high speed to create hovering, glowing orbs of ectoplasm. The results are eerily beautiful, although I imagine that the moment after is less so. Photographers can check out detailed information of her setup in this article from DIY Photography, in case you want to create your own.

Etsy shop The Last Sparrow features the moody, magical photography of shop owner Violet Gray presented in a number of unusual ways- as home decor, tapestries, clothing, bags, and more. Of course most photos are also available as standard prints- but why limit yourself?

Dreaming of cooler temperatures so that I can cloak myself in Shades of Silence Fall/Winter collection.

New favorite tombstone (barely edging out Popcorn the Clown‘s final resting place): Lilly E Gray’s tombstone in Salt Lake Cemetery (Salt Lake City, UT). Despite the amazing epitaph and the many local rumors it has generated, it is probable that Lilly simply died of natural causes. However, her husband Elmer, who would have been in charge of writing her epitaph, seems to have been right off his rocker and prone to interesting tales. He once filed a petition with the Utah Board of Pardons in spite of never having been arrested, in which he claims to have been kidnapped and held hostage for ten years by Democrats.
