Orbs in the crypt, Washoe Club, Virginia City, NV. by dbphoto80
Orbs in the crypt, Washoe Club, Virginia City, NV.

This picture was taken in one of the most haunted towns in the western world known as Virginia City. This building especially is known to be haunted. This is the Washoe Club made famous by the Ghost Adventures Crew on the Travel Channel.

This particular room was used to stow dead bodies in the winter time due to the ground being to frozen to dig graves.

It is a popular belief in the paranormal world that spirits show up in photographs as these little balls of light, known as orbs. Skeptics will tell you that its simply just dust reflecting from the flash into the lens. This phenomenon is one of the most controversial subjects in the paranormal world.

my name is Derek Bratton and I like to think of myself as a photographer. No, I'm not what would be considered a professional photographer because I don't get paid for it so just right now it’s a hobby, but one I enjoy lot.
I actually started off my photography career is trying to capture pictures and videos of the of the paranormal and I have caught some. So yes, I was a ghost hunter until one day that hobby started to affect me in a very negative way. it's also started to affect my wife and kids in a negative way to so unfortunately had to quit.
So now I take pictures of what I find interesting, I'm no longer ghost ghost hunter although I do find myself in the occasional EVP sessions from now and again. for all of you skeptics out there, I used to be a skeptic myself. That's how I got into the whole ghosthunting business. I just wanted to see if it was real, and as the saying goes "be careful what you wish for" I got what I wished for, it’s real.
I would love to get it to Boudoir photography, but being married and being a family man it's kinda hard to do that. Fortunately, my job allows me to travel and I get to take pictures of the badass things like F-18 fighter jets so that's where you will find that most of my genre lies, in aviation photography and family portraits.
