I have a friend who, when asked whether or not he believes in ghosts, said that he believes ghosts and other mythical/supernatural beings really do exist for those who create their existence and absolutely don't exist for those that don't create their existence. At the time I laughed at his answer because of the obvious implication of a contradiction. (Though, now I see that the contradiction only exists if you assume objective universe over transcendental)

Though on some level he has a point, that point being that your best chance of not running into any "paranormal shit" is to not believe in "paranormal shit."

Unfortunately, this trick doesn't seem to work on hell holes. Doesn't matter if you've never heard of them, you're still at risk of falling in.

Its probably explainable but the spookiest experience I ever had was when I was exploring houses I saw in the woods. 4 houses in an L shape formation so me and my friend went from top of the L to the bottom. The first 2 were nothing special but the 3rd was kinda cool. It was 2 floored and a basement. the 4th and last house was kinda creepy because we found a closet labeled "Devil Door" and my friend scream when he opened it and then we had a laugh because it was a mannequin head (the ones with a face for medical practice) covered in red paint which was obviously was a prank. But the weird thing is I recorded the whole thing on an iPhone and when I re-watched the video there was no sound at all. So I thought that was creepy.

As a solo explorer hellholes, other humans and wildlife are about the scariest things that I have to watch out for. Oh and also choo-choo trains... But I've explored places where murders have happened or lives have been lost and I always have this eerie feeling I'm not a alone. The craziest was exploring a train tunnel(with a dark past) with my son and both him felt that. He was like Dad I swear someone is just there looking at us and you look over and see just trees. I believe in the paranormal but I've never felt that way after living a spot. Maybe it's just the deads way of telling us to let them rest in peace.

I have a few stories as to why I believe but the vast majority of them have nothing to do with UrbEx and just being in crazy places with crazy things happening.

Also perfect day to post this... Friday the 13th.

Yeah it was creepy not going to lie. It doesn't scare me the way it probably should. All my senses were just on hyper drive at that place.

This wasn't in an abandoned place, but back when I still lived in Omaha with me ex, we rented a place from 07-11 before we bought the house. Our son slept just fine in his room up until he was about 2 or so, then we had hell getting him to sleep in his room. We could lay him down in his bed while he was asleep, but a few hours later he'd wake up crying in terror. He couldn't tell us very well at that age what was wrong, but he'd inevitably end up in our bed. He had no problem playing in his room in the day, but would not go in there alone after dark.

When he was 3, we converted the crib to a "big boy" bed and thought that would fix the problem, but it didn't. Since he was talking better he would always tell us about "the man that came out of his closet, on his ceiling, that would laugh and scare him". And not for nothing, but that closet was cold year round. One night while he was in our bed, and we still had the monitor on, one of his stuffed animals just started talking and doing it's song it would sing. My ex turned and looked at me with HUGE eyes and was like, WTF?! So I went in the room freaked out as hell, every hair on my body standing up, and pulled the batteries out of the damn thing.

Eventually when we bought our house and was setting up his room, he asked if the man was going to come out and scare him. We told him the man couldn't come to the new house and we never had any trouble with him sleeping in his own room at all after that.

I would have written it all off, but he stuck to that story up until he was 4. And I didn't let him watch any scary movies or ever really expose him to ghosts or any other things so I have no idea.

Majority of the unexplained/weird "paranormal" stuff that happens to me hasn't really happened in abandonments. I've had the usual noises/lights flicking/dust in the camera lens at asylums and hospitals but I think its more of hyping myself up for it due to the history. I do have a house that is supposedly abandoned now (I believe the intent is to re-purpose/resell but unsure) that I had some weird stuff happen at.



The house pre-1980. Unsure of the exact date.

Around late 2008-2010ish I stayed in this house with a group of people when we wanted to get away from the city. It was owned by my friend's dad as a farm house/additional property. Work was never put into the house really so it wasn't in the best of shape but it was still absolutely gorgeous. It had personality and a lot of acreage for us to have bonfires and try to relax. Looking back I wish I had taken more photos/videos but unfortunately I wasn't really into any of that back then.

The interior 6 years after I had already moved out. A circle of death night while I was living there.

So there were several stories about what happened in the house before her parents came to own the property. As far as tax records they go back to 1909 and before that the history trail just sort of dies off. So I'll mention what we were told happened and then what happened when I actually lived there.

The Stories
1. The property is roughly 19 acres and majority of it is wooded except for whats around the house. There are 3 barns, 2 of which are falling apart and these massive wooden posts in random areas. The posts had obvious history of chain wear/tear around them. People in the area claimed the home was civil war/slave owned property and the posts are where people were tied up... not very nice.

2. The oldest barn on the property. Not sure what it was about this barn but I didn't ever want to be around it. It was basically falling apart and had been with the property for a very long time. Regardless the walls were still up and the door was still hinged and even though the entire building looked like it could collapse at any minute the door handle and the door latches didn't rust at all. The whole thing bothered me and it didn't help that "supposedly" The head of household hung himself in that barn before it was inherited down to the original address owned in 1910.

There were a lot of weird suicide/slave torture stories/it was mentioned about sick children who died and thats why the man killed himself? Who knows. I couldn't find much which still bums me out.

What Happened During My Stay
1. She would like to have "Family" parties of just close friends to have a bonfire/play drinking games and hangout. The house included 6 bedrooms and several couches so it wasn't difficult for everybody to crash. I lost count of how many times people said they absolutely loved our cats (A black one and a minx to be exact). We didn't own any cats. 2 Small dogs lived on the property and occasionally my dog, or her dog, would come down as well. The people who lived there (her, myself, and sometimes 2-3 other close friends) we never saw these cats. Guests said they pet them inside and outside of the house and we never understood it.

2. We absolutely loved candles but we were very adamant about blowing the out before we left to go to town. After about 2-3 times when we knew we blew them all out yet we would come back and apparently we forgot to (we didn't I know we didn't) there would still be these one upstairs lit or one that was in front bedroom.

3. We borrowed left for dead from someone who lived in-town. This lady was livid that she hadn't given it back yet and drove to our house to flip out about getting the game. She had a gun in her car that she brought to scare us in case my friend didn't return the game. I was asleep this entire time but naturally they gave up the game with no hesitation and the lady left. When she got home she accidentally shot and killed herself with that same gun.

4. The dogs. Two dogs lived permanently on this property. They were taken care of by somebody hired locally from my friend's father and they had been there from what I was told 2002-thru us living there from time to time now. They were older and more so calm small breeds. The dogs would sometimes come out in the fenced in or/unfenced portion of the yard but they never went further than a few yards. They were definite inside dogs. Both of these dogs who we grew attached to just disappeared one night. One moment they were in the house safe and sound and the next they were just gone. We yelled, called names. looked for awhile. but the last thing I ever heard was they really honestly never found them.

My friendship with this girl went stale after we had some disagreements about life choices and what not so I ended up enjoying my last visit to my favorite secondary home in 2010. Shortly afterwards I wasn't really kept up with much that happened. However I was told that someone I went to highschool with stayed there for a short period of time in his own room (which was my old bedroom)and he started to skip family dinners and would spend essentially no time with anyone else in the house. One day they realized he had moved out and the only thing they found were full dishes of cooked food that he had layered into the dresser but didn't eat any of it. He didn't vanish like the dogs, apparently he moved back to our hometown. But either way he never explained why he did all that.

Some very interesting things also happened to her/her family years after staying in the property (outside of the property itself) but in the event that anyone recognizes this or her its extremely devastating and personal so I don't want to include it. It was "abandoned" by her father I believe from 2012-2016 (he passed away) and then resold under someone else for less than 70k at the end of 2016. As far as I know the people listed haven't done anything with it. I intend to drive past there sometime soon so if anything changed or I find out anything new I'll update and check it out.



I pulled this from google and its dated 2014.


An image she posted on fb after re-visiting a few years later. Only makes me a little sad (im fine, IM FINE).

This ended up a lot longer than I intended. I fell in love with this house as an emancipated stressed out 15 year old. Anywho, thats my story.

I had a pretty freaky experience recently, when photographing this old burned out house. No, not the orb.



This house belonged to HG Underwood, one of the earliest Christian missionaries in Korea who founded a university campus and a hospital. His daughter-in-law was murdered here by communist agents shortly before the Korean War. The house caught fire last October and was left to the elements since then.

While I was taking long exposures, I turned and saw this human form lurking there. It gave me quite a jump and I was uncomfortable the rest of my time there.



I went back a few days later and photographed it in the daylight. No clue what it was.

One of my friends suggested it was the base for a statue that used to be there, which seemed plausible.



Then one of my other friends gave his explanation, which I will quote him on from our conversation (picture a lot of "Are you serious?" comments from me between paragraphs):


It is one of the upright sofas we wanted to get rid of.

It was extremely uncomfortable but it was designed by one of the Yonsei (Underwood's university) graduates and had been donated to us. As it was extremely uncomfortable and yet still occupied tremendous amount of space in our office we decided to put it outside (because nothing could be thrown out as long as it remains school's own property).

I was the official tour guide and the caretaker of the Underwood Memorial house. I worked there from August 2015 to September 2016, two months before the fire. I did the guided tour of the whole house, cleaned the house every day, and made sure everything was neat and tidy - I even wound the old clock (one of the actual Underwood family donations at the house) every day - as I actually fixed the clock to run properly and ring the bell at every hour.

I also have to add that I am the one who brought that thing under the tree on the right side of the house, near the water basin.



So, one of the top three freakiest things I ever saw turned out to be a chair, and not only that, but it was placed in its position by my friend. So now whenever I come across something like this that makes me feel ill at ease, I'm going to say "JDI," or "J Did It."

Steed, #2 is from some sort of internal lense or lense/sensor reflection from the sun on the right side of the shot. Notice both are the same color/hue.
If you view it in b&w you see nothing extraordinary. The blue color is probably is due to optic coatings on the lense element(s).

Not sure what you're talking about. If you mean the bluish figure on the left, that's just me and it was intentional. And the light source on the right is a streetlight as it's 3am.

Let me preface this by saying that for the most part, I believe that when your clock stops ticking, you're done. I don't put a whole lot of weight in the afterlife theory. Having said that...

A thousand years ago when I was going to university, I worked as an over night security guard in a downtown office tower.

After 7:00 in the evening, people going upstairs needed to have a security card for the elevator and had to sign into a logbook we kept at the lobby security desk; in theory, so that if there were an emergency, we'd know who was in the building and where they were.

One shift at around 3:00 in the morning, I flipped through the book and saw that someone who had signed in at 9:30-something hadn't signed out, so I went up to check on them - or see if they had just left without signing out.

The office suite where they worked took up about half the floor and only had two ways in, one at each end of the space. I let myself in at one end and walked through the entire space, which was mostly dark, only with minimal 'security' level lighting on. I came around the last bend in the hallway and saw a light on in the last office at the far end.

I continued down the hall, having a look into each office on either side of the hall as I went, seeing or hearing no one. When I got to the last office, I stepped in to see the light was coming from a desk lamp, and there was no one there. I walked all the way in, over to the window to have a look at the view; it was on the 30-something floor and had a great overview of the city.

About 30 seconds later, the office door, which was solid wood and seven feet tall (so, about 70 pounds), slammed shut hard enough for the fancy wooden coat hanger that was hanging on the hook on the back of the door to bounce off and tumble to the floor.

I ran across the room, whipped the door open and stopped in the middle of the hallway, watching and listening hard for any movement; nothing. Not a sound. Then, just in case I wasn't quite freaked out enough, what I can only describe as a large rush of cold air came down the hallway and 'went through me'. It wasn't an air conditioning-type breeze; at that time of day all of the building's systems would still be off for another couple of hours, and this was more like opening your front door and having a huge gust of wind blast in - in February. It was fast and cold...and I was done.

I went back down to the lobby and just told the other security guard that the person must have left without signing the book, and promptly went outside for a smoke, not ever telling anyone that I worked with the story.

I've never had anything remotely similar happen in the nearly 30 years since...and I'm pretty okay with that.
