Collector's Lament

I'm often asked if I ever experienced anything paranormal when I explore. There was a disembodied voice of a woman saying hello at the abandoned Lehigh Cement Plant in Craigsville, Va. It was July and very hot that day, but when I heard the voice I became very cold and all the hairs on my arms stood straight up. A very weird feeling to say the least. Also, I've experienced ghostly footsteps above me when there was no second floor for such a thing to even happen. The floor was completely rotted away. That was at the old #petersburgva ice plant. It's now the #trapeziumbrewing company.
I heard a yell in one of the hallways and a door slamming shut at #centralstatehospital. Also, in Petersburg Va. So, three experiences in the 9 years that I've been doing this is not exactly what #zakbagans would consider spectacular, but they were creepy and a bit unsettling. I can't say that I totally believe in ghosts, but I can't disprove them either. Still, if there are ghosts and ghouls hanging about these places, I have a million questions and would love to take their #glamourshots

Was just sitting around editing some photos from a few weeks ago and I got to this one. I was joking around with Scott about the "Slenderman" shadow at the end of the hall, which I have convinced myself is just a trick of the light somehow, but this was the first time I noticed the harder to explain shillouette of a person on the wall across from the doorway of the last room of the hall. 🙃😱👻💀☠

For those who don't know, especially during the Jim Crow era from the late 1800s to the mid 1960s, the Central State Lunatic Asylum For The Colored Insane was a psychiatric hospital in Petersburg, Virginia where African-Americans were not only admitted for being mentally ill in dealing with mental health issues after migrating from slavery/forced enslavement in the South; but were also admitted for various incidents such as disobeying Jim Crows laws in not stepping off a sidewalk to allow a white man to pass, getting into an argument with a white boss, and talking back to a white police officer. Prior to this, African-Americans who challenged Jim Crows were denied jobs and loans from the local banks, while others were arrested, beaten or killed. If it wasn't for the African-American civil rights movement, the 1954 federal case of the Brown vs the Board of Education, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, we would still be living in the harsh times of Jim Crow laws via racial #segregation and #discrimination laws in the United States. Salute to the living and deceased activists of the African-American civil rights movement! Despite the Central State Lunatic Asylum For The Colored Insane being renamed the Central State Hospital in 1970, African-Americans in the U.S. black communities are still suffering from the stigmas of mental health and severe mental illness to this day. #africanamericancivilrights #civilrights #blackhistorymonth #africanamericans #motivation #nevergiveup #inspiration #godsplan #godswill #godspurpose #godscalling #blackhistory #worldhistory #africanamericanhistory #historylesson #blackexcellence #jimcrowlaws #separatebutequal #blackcodes #americancivilwar #votingrightsact #civilrightsact #centralstatehospital #brownvstheboardofeducation #americanslavery #breakthestigmaofmentalillness #breakthestigma #mentalhealthawareness
