Things that go BUMP in the night...

I've been awake since 2:50am (roughly) - won't go into the details at this time. Nevertheless, let me go in a round about way of explaining: there are things you see and hear that are real (that's a given - yes, for most people, what we hear and see is most certainly real, has substance, exists). But, there are also things that most of us can't really see, and they may, mind you, also have the ability to make sounds, manipulate objects (etc.), and they too, are just as real to our senses. Believe it or Not - These are the things that go bump in the night.

As an added note: In the world of photography, the above mentioned statement holds true as well. A lot of what you get with photography is flat-out what-you-see-is-what-you-get, documentary and journalistic. And, documentary photography can be stunning! Then, there is the other side of photography, the side where the viewer of a photograph thinks they know what they see; but, in the background, the photographer has created an illusion of sorts, putting parts and pieces together to make something appear real. And, this type of photography is no less stunning and exciting to see, and, to capture.

  1. I would try using some infrared film to see about getting the things that you can't see -- to see if they show up. Just my hop.

  2. Yeah good idea - I've also considered the IR video option, long record, set it up in several locations and see if this (these) thing(s) leave a trace. The incidents are variable and seem to depend on other factors around & outside of the house, so, the chance of catching it (if even possible) on film/video would be slim I think. Nevertheless, the IR options seem best.
