A Christmas Carol by Gothicphoto A Christmas Carol by Gothicphoto
This was a play put on at APSU last year and this is the picture that I took for the school newspaper to go with the article.
What I did was just a timed exposure that was tooled for the piss poor lighting in the theatre (piss poor for photography purposes). I had 'Scrooge' stand as still as possible while the ghost of christmas past ran around him.

Hope you like it.

Lovely, but isn't the Ghost of Christmas Past a boy?

i think it depends on which book or movie you read/watch. most of time it's a girl. they go back to his past when HE was a boy... but most of the time its a white misty little girl

Oh, well I like it better as a girl anyways
Everyone makes the Past and the Present different genders
they don't really count the Future because it is mostly a grim reader type thingy
