In 1988 I took this photo of the McCrary Hotel here in Santa Cruz, CA. I knew the building was about to be torn down to make way for a retirement community main building so I tried to capture was was left of it before the dozers. I took artistic license by giving the original a "wet plate" look. I had a friend that lived in the building as you see it here. He was there illegally and only came and went at night. I spent an evening there seeping in all of the hauntedness it had to offer. Turns out it's actually pretty famous because....well you can go here to find out.

Here's the original photo.
