Chillingham Castle and the ‘Blue Boy’ Ghost.

The Chillingham Castle, northern England, United Kingdom was originally a monastery in the late 12th century.
It attracts tourists from around the world who are eager to see the most haunted castle in Britain.
The most famous ghost of the castle is the “blue (or radiant) boy”, who according to the owners used to haunt the Pink Room in the castle.
Guests supposedly reported seeing blue flashes and a blue “halo” of light above their beds after a loud wail.

Growing up, our house was always full of storybooks. I would come home from school and my mother would have some incredible eastern European volume.
“Look at this one,” she’d say. “I need to show you.” We’d sit together on the sofa. I’d rest my head on her chest and she’d read to me.
In April 2008, while living in France, my mother was diagnosed with a brain tumour, and died seven months later.
Her decline was so fast that she wasn’t able to come back to England.
Her funeral – had it been in the UK – would have been a celebration of her legacy. As a schoolteacher she had inspired so many with literature and imagination. When I got back, I knew I needed to do something.
Nature became a huge comfort and helped me process my grief, which in turn inspired my photography. I found this location, Leith Hill, in Surrey, just as the bluebells were blooming.
The colour was exactly as intense as it is in my photograph. They come and go so quickly though, there was no time to actually make a picture there. I had to wait until the following spring.

Morning Mist over The Tower.

“Built in 1799, the tower stands majestically 1,000 feet above sea level, one of the highest points in the county,” he said.
“I wanted to create a fairy tale atmosphere with this image.
It took a number of visits over a six-month period to get the low cloud and morning mist, but the end result was worth all the early starts, as the image turned out exactly how I imagined it.” Darren Moore.

Dark Alleyways in Manchester.

An old building I came across in High Street, Northern Quarter, Manchester.
Initially shot in colour, I realised that it gives a separate meaning and charm to the photo if converted to Black and White.

About photorollz
I am a student of Journalism in Manchester. I love travelling and discovering new places. I believe that even the same old place can appear new with seasons, mood, time and lights.
An old place which you have become tired of visiting or staring at, can sometimes give you new perspectives in life. I visit a lot of places, not once but twice or thrice to capture the essence of the place.
Interestingly, every time I visit the place I discover something new, that is why, I would tell my stories about unique and weird places through my photoblog.

Fantasies of the future – Wellcome Collection.

In this dramatic Victorian prediction, politics is centre-stage:
Ireland has been brought to her knees before Britannia.
This seems less a prediction than a reference to the potato famine from the 1840s that had devastated Ireland.
Other doom-and-gloom forecasted included shipwrecks and war.
