More from the No Man Is An Island- other photographers

It has been one busy week, and it's only Tuesday morning! The pictures from other photographers who attended the No Man Is An Island shoot have been rolling in. I think Sarah Backstrom deserves the "1st to Submit" prize- a cup of free pine pollen from my house, which has been accumulating on everything I own that lives outside. OK, Sarah, if you don't want the pollen, you can have my firstborn child. But only when it's crying, and only for a few minutes.

Here are some links to others' blogs where they've posted pictures from the shoot. Enjoy, but please don't steal their pictures by right clicking. Photographers, just like lawyers and factory workers, have to feed their children and dogs and such. Or in my case, horses and chickens...

Did I photograph a ghost's foot?






So we had beautiful weather, a great turnout (14 other photographers besides myself) and a really fun time with the photo shoot at the Glynns in St. Francisville. I didn't actually shoot many pictures at all, which was fine. But the ones I got I was pretty happy with.

I don't believe in ghosts, BUT while editing the picture of the couple, I noticed what looks like a boot below the counter, as if a person was sitting at the table behind them. I honestly don't know what is up with the boot, and I swear that I didn't add it into the picture. Does anyone else see it? Am I imagining things? The Glynns does happen to be very near the Myrtles Plantation home, which is said to be haunted....

OR, maybe it's way too late at night and my imagination is running wild.

I'm wondering if any of the other photographers saw anything that could be creepy in their pictures (besides me).....
