This week, we decided to test a new action camera, and – perhaps – create some ghost-hunting related videos.
This video was recorded at Village Cemetery in Kennebunkport, Maine (USA), shortly after noon.
Walking Around a Maine Cemetery – Kennebunkport 1
This video is a short, silent walk around an eerie, historic Maine cemetery on a November afternoon. I recorded this video to test a new action camera I plan to use to document my ghost research. (The video is okay for something that’s just a test, but I’ll use my handheld gimbal stabilizer for future, similar videos.)
It’s a lovely, slightly unsettling cemetery with easy, roadside parking. The main hazard is a nearby golf course. (Yes, I brought home a golf ball that had landed near my feet.)
The cemetery is lovely and – aside from shouts of “fore!” by the golfers – it’s almost unsettlingly quiet. Even the traffic on the nearby road seems muted.
Many of the headstones (and some footstones) are ornate. A few markers on a raised berm mark family plots, with names and dates of all the deceased on just one, long marker.
Today’s video was just a test, but I put it online anyway. People who like “walking around” videos might enjoy it.
For our next test, we’ll put the camera on a gimbal stabilizer, and perhaps use a separate voice recorder so the ambient noise is clearer. We’ll save the video at a higher resolution, too.
(Update: After thinking about this for a couple of days, I’ve now added a soundtrack… just peaceful music. Otherwise, even I think that video is boring! lol )
In general, I’m hoping to get out to haunted locations before wintry weather arrives. Right now, the autumn lights and shadows are magnificent, and accent old and ancient sites very nicely.
