Ghostly elegant women @ THE VAULT, Tampa

ART DISTRICT / TAMPA, FL – The Vault of Souls banner, with the ghostly image of an elegant women, high on the Franklin Exchange building was the image chosen to represent this year’s haunted interactive ghost story inside The Vault, or should we say, in the basement of The Vault.

A long and dark elevator ride takes guests down into the underworld, an 11,000 square foot cavern underneath the 1923 Exchange National Bank building. This deep dark place is known to some as a paranormal purgatory or sorts, where the souls are said to speak and where the haunted performances begin to spark fear in whoever enters.

Downtown Tampa’s private photoshoot

DOWNTOWN TAMPA, FL – City of Tampa’s private photoshoot was done in a way to respect people’s privacy. People live here; this is their home.
