A Ghost Story for Halloween

It’s time for a Halloween ghost story!

A couple of years ago, (time flyes!) I had a cool photo session with Edmond Steens, a Dutch actor and a model. Our main photo session was over. We had done a lot but still had some energy left, and it was a beautiful October day. Why not take an improvised photo walk after an indoor session? So we took a couple of props with us and headed to a nearby park. The park turned out to lie next to an old Schiedam graveyard – it used to be Roman Catholic and got almost abandoned long ago. A beautiful neoclassic chapel now hosts a Romanian Orthodox Church.

Edmond played a kind of Mafioso ghost approaching the gates of the other world. Nobody welcomes him and he tries to break in, without success. Will he ever find his peace? With such white wings this ghost cannot be totally bad, don’t you think so?

I still haven’t figured out the details of the story but hope for some happy ending…  Maybe you can finish it? Or perhaps you even have your own version of a story?

Edmond, thank you for the inspirational photo session, it was great to work with you!

Wishing Halloween fun to everyone!
