Candle ghost

March 26, 2009

“These were taken in our home in France, just after we moved here in 2004. It was a nice evening and we were all outside and we took a few pictures on my digital camera. The two pictures I’m attaching clearly show ‘something’ or ‘someone’ in the background, and we regularly have the sensation that somebody else is here. We call our ghost Roland, as that was the name of the person who used to live here before he was killed along with his wife and grandson in a car accident. We’ve never seen him, apart from on these pictures where we think he just wanted to come and join in!

These pictures have not been re-touched (I wouldn’t even know how to begin!) – we just enjoy showing them to friends and people around the village, who have told us that the second picture (137) does indeed bear a striking resemblance to Roland…”
