Tombstone Diary: Saturday, April 11, 2015
Inside The Bird Cage you’ll see this guy.
He gives a 10 minute talk on the history of The Bird Cage.
It’s a good talk. (Though I’m not so sure about the sunglasses)
Lots of stuff to look at.
For 8 bucks, we’re invited to go in back and see the rest of The Bird Cage.
We ante up and mosey in.
The Bird Cage Theatre
Rose is standing where the seats used to be.
I’m shooting from by the stage.
The Bird Cages line the room on both sides.
A table of artifacts.
Below: I found the guns.
Below: Faro table used by Doc Holliday and Wyatt Earp.
Lots of ghost stories and ghost experiences around Tombstone – as you would imagine. I bumped into a couple of gents in The Bird Cage who trying to photograph ghosts or ‘orbs’.
I didn’t encounter or photograph anything myself and it really wasn’t on my mind. Rose, however, did have an interesting experience at the piano. She took a number of shots, but none of them would come out.
Fuzzy, grainy and with spots all over them.
True, we are both fully capable of taking lousy photographs, but
I have never seen this effect on either of our cameras before.
Below: I had no such problem.
Except for the thing in the circle.
An Orb? or just a spot?
Moving along …
Behind the curtain …
I’m in …
On the way out …
A good and interesting time in The Bird Cage.
