March 25, 2009

More mist

March 24, 2009

“Please find attached 2 photographs with a strange ‘ghost’ on them. They were taken at Disneyland Paris a couple of weeks ago, standing outside the hotel, attempting to take a photo of floodlit trees. There was no-one near us, no smoke and no air vents (we checked after seeing the first shot!). The second shot was taken about 30 seconds to a minute after the first, of the exact same spot – it looked like whatever it was had moved off! Nothing was visible to either me or my 16 year old daughter – only what showed up on the camera. We can’t explain it but would be grateful if you could! :)”

Here is the first shot…..

Ghost in water

March 22, 2009

“Not really a ghost as such but a freaky face in a reflection caught on a glass wall of a Croc enclosure here in Perth Australia. It is an enclosure that alloys above and below viewing of a crocodile. The photo was taken by a standard 35mm camera and has been scanned to jpg. Most likely finger print smudges on the glass, nevertheless I thought I would share.”

A big ‘thank you’ to everyone who was kind enough to send in a ‘ghost’ photograph. We had over 300 submissions and so it simply wasn’t possible to post them all here. Instead, we have chosen the 50 most compelling, interesting and diverse images for the site. We hope that you will enjoy looking at the photographs, and feel free to post some comments and vote. There has been some great discussions so far, and over 140,000 votes. The results of the project will be announced very soon and also discussed at the Hauntings event.
Again, thanks to everyone for participating.

I am sending to you photo of my friend with interesting optical effect. They think, that this photo of ghost, but I many times tried to explain it by physical optical methodology, because I believe ONLY in power of Science. Please help me to explain to my friend.

Water ghost

March 20, 2009

This from the person who sent it in: Attached is a photo of me (on the right) in a steam at saltburn woods. The photo was took on my friends digital camera during the day time. When i had this picture on my desktop backround my girlfriend noticed the other figure and asked if anyone else was there, which there wasn’t. I zoomed closer and noticed the figure looked like a young boy dressed in grey shorts and t-shirt. And it appeared he was washing his feet or getting somthing off his foot. Although he seems transparent he still has a reflection in the water, Ive never known if ghosts have reflection or not.

Ghost in shop

March 19, 2009

From the person who sent it in:

This picture was taken in Madrid.
If you look above the seated man slightly to the left you can see the shape of a lit up male figure. I thought the shape was quite similar that of “Ghost in distance” and “Ghost in field”. I found it quite eerie. Would be very interested in what you made of it.

Night ghost

March 19, 2009

From the person who sent it in:

This was taken by a friend of mine whilst the three of us were on a ghost hunt at St Albans Cathedral. Whilst we took many during the evening that showed mist and ‘orbs’ this one was the most usual and I still haven’t been able to think of a decent explanation as to what may have caused the light effect you can clearly see (supernatural or not!). This was one of the first pictures taken during the evening and I have one taken of the same area (for our own post-analysis) that shows no artificial light.

Bathroom ghost

March 18, 2009

This from the person who sent it in:

I have been capturing ghost/spirit images in my photos for several years.
Its not just by chance because I am seeing them in my LCD screen on the camera or otherwise sensing that they are close by.  I have sent to you a recent picture took at an alleged haunted cafe/restaurant at Walton on the Naze Essex. I do not photos for a living, I am an Alarm engineer.

Skull ghost

March 18, 2009

This from the person who sent it in:

I am from Croatia. This image has been taken at 14 march 2008. It was my 18 birthday and I celebrated it in an old community center. The next day when I looked at the pictures I found something strange on one picture. I have taken a picture of my two buddies with a mobile phone mark sonny ericcson model K750i. The picture is not in high quallity but it can be seen a skeletal face over their heads. We studied on net and we have come to know that this is a ghost. Thank you for your time, and sorry for my bad english.

Carter ghost

March 17, 2009

This from the person that sent it in:

The image was taken at a Obama Nation Celebration party after the Nov 4 election in Atlanta Ga.  President Carters and his daughter Amy came along. Take a good look at the rest of the photo also. The one above his head is not the only orb to appear.

Ghost in red smoke

March 16, 2009

From the person who sent it in:

Attached is a photograph taken on august 2007 at around 2100 hours inside a tent in a Cloud Forest at the outskirts of Tegucigalpa, Honduras while we went camping and birdwatching (the photo is very silly with my wife and I making faces) but the creepy part is the red cloud that surrounds us, to this day I cannot explain what is going on there, I cant say if its supernatural or light having its way or dust or whatever—I saw your blog and thought it would be nice to share the photo with the rest of the world.

On the area the photo was taken about a 100 years back it was a silver and gold mine and as people recall lots of workers died there so that could be an “explanation”. The state of the photo is as it was taken without any doctoring whatsoever and I took the picture.

Ghost on beach

March 16, 2009

From the person that sent it in:

My son took this photo of me at the Rock and Spindle on the coast east of St Andrews. Right in the centre of the image is a person standing in the water in wellingtons facing to the right and wearing an anorack with the hood up.  It WAS a chilly day. We were definitely alone at the time and it really spooked us when we looked through the pictures once home and saw this.

Castle ghost

March 16, 2009

From the person that sent it in:

Please find attached a photograph that I took at Tantallon castle on May 26th 2008, which I feel you may be interested in. The photo was taken in the central keep around 1500 hours. At the time I was not aware of anyone, or any thing being present in my picture only noticing the anomaly on examining the digitial photograph when I got home. I have not scrubbed the CF card, so the originial is still available for examination.

I have been in touch with the staff at Tantallon and have verified that there were no sinister dummies in period costume, placed strategically in windows for our amusement, or historical  re-enactments going on that day at the castle. Similarly I did not notice any nice old ladies wearing ruffs walking around the central stair wells! These are a couple of conclusions, as well as “its just light reflecting on rocks”, that some people have made about the photo. One person suggested it may be King James V of Scotland who lived at the castle as the figure looks like his portrait? Irrespective of these observations I hope you agree that it is a fascinating picture.

Apart from the photograph being enlarged it is not the product of adobe photo shop, which I have absolutely no idea how to use, or any other computer art program for that matter.  What ever you conclude from the photograph I would be very interested to hear what you think.
