Deja Vu

A few years ago, at Christmas time, we were out at the Seul Choix lighthouse in the Upper Peninsula. It's not far from my mom and dad's house and we like to go out there sometimes because it's a pretty place.

It's also haunted.

Anyway, I was walking down the driveway, away from the lighthouse, to see something else when my dad called out "Hey Krys, turn around and take a look at this!"

I did, and saw that the setting sun had illuminated the lighthouse tower in an eerie red light. I snapped a photo from where I was standing, and when I had the film (yes, film) developed, I liked it, so I had it made into a set of blank greeting cards on Shutterfly. I still have a couple of the cards left, stashed in my stationery box.

Yesterday, I picked up the autumn copy of Michigan Home and Lifestyle magazine, and I was flipping through it when I saw a story about haunted lighthouses in Michigan. I stopped on the page about Seul Choix. The photo looked really familiar.

No, they didn't steal my photo, but it's crazy how similar they are. The one in the magazine was taken during a different season, obviously, and the trees aren't visible in the photo, but oh my goodness, it seems like the person who took this photo was standing in almost the exact same spot I was! Crazy.

Look how similar the photos are (My greeting card on the left, the magazine on the right)

Neat, huh?

I thought so anyway.

As you can see, I'm easily impressed these days.
