Alois Hotel Haunting

RagaEntityImagined1

This is a photo of a near fully-formed ectoplasmic entity encountered on 18 February, 2015.  It is part of my ‘Ghosts Imagined’ series.

Last year, I had the great fortune to do a ghost hunt and photo shoot at Bube’s Brewery in Mt. Joy, PA.  This week I returned and tried to capture some entity images at the Alios Hotel, which is restaurant and hotel that is attached to Bube’s Brewery.  The place is a maze of catacombs and connections, color and history and a great place to capture ghost images.

The complex is  huge.  It was built in the 19th century and was a used a brewery throughout most of its very powerful history. It was part of the underground railroad before the Civil War.  Employees now report the place to be haunted with a number of entities. According to the employees these are benevolent entities, but sometimes bit mischievous. It was reported to me that they seem to care about the well-being of the business and it’s current owner Samuel Allen.

More Location Stuff: Alois Hotel  at Bube’s Brewery, Mt. Joy, PA – a haunted 19th century restaurant, bar with attached catacombs tunnels, and a maze of amazing photo ops around every corner.

Geeky Photo Stuff: This was a long exposure made in order to leverage the color vibrance of the upstairs hallway.  The camera was set on a tripod to avoid blur and shake. The ghost was most gracious to appear for the photo. He, along with the other shoot participants and I, all shared food and drink during the shoot.  Ghosts models know how to party I recommend putting out a food tray to attract them during any photo shoot.
