A particulary interesting segment of ghost pictures truly intrigues me to no end. It is the capture of ‘partial’ ghosts in pictures, where even though no on claims to have seen anything, a partial spectre is caught staring at the camera. It’s rather creepy actually, considering the fact that many of these ghosts caught are clear as day. Of course, the question remains. Ghost, or pareidolia?
The first I’d like to look at was a wedding photo from the Scienceof ghosts site.
This photo is rather creepy to me since what you see is a nice wonderful photo at a wedding that looks rather normal. When blown up, you can clearly see someone hiding behind the man on the right! It is completely curious to me, the leg that you see appears to be of the posture of someone who is standing straight up, yet for the eye and the portion of the face peeking out, you would think the person would be standing on the front of their feet, their butt would be sticking out past the guy. Is this a ghost or a case of pareidolia? Could it be a child hiding behind the man, if so consider how big the foot behind the man is. It is close to the size of the man’s foot in the foreground, thus could it belong to a child if it is indeed a child hiding?
The second is a famous picture of Freddy Jackson, circa 1919. Freddy Jackson was an airplane mechanic who was killed by a propeller a few days earlier.
Freddy appears behind the man at the top, fourth from the left. Curious how similar this is to the previous photo. The ghost is almost hiding yet aware and peeking out from behind someone. Source: Paranormal.About.com
Another photo from Scienceofghosts. This one is a random picture submitted to the site which shows picture of a head behind the mans knee.
The head appears to be in the bookcase, judging by looking at it. I’d almost have to write this off as a hoax or a photoshop because of the ‘redeye’ effect, as the ghost clearly has it. But then again, who am I to say? I mean if a ghost can take on not only form but substance, why can’t it have redeyes?
Another trippy photo from Scienceofghosts.
Hopefully everyone can see the two pictures appearing here. The photos appear to be of a group having dinner/lunch. In the second picture out of nowhere appears the bust of a lady. These two picture couldn’t have been taken very far appart (check the levels of beer in the glasses). The ghost seems to appear on the table! Notice she has shoulders and a head, and you can even see in the glass in front of her the relection of her shirt/sweater! This has got to be a bonfide photo of a ghost. It’s just curious the she appears in the middle of the table!
How strange these photos are. Why are the ghosts hiding? They first three are obviously aware of the camera, yet they got caught. The lady in the fourth isn’t paying attention to the camera (or so it appears), but appears in the middle of the table in front of people, in sitting position (presumably)? Even though these are but a few photos where a ghost is captured in and around a group of people, why not more? Are these lost souls bound to someone or something? Are these ghosts, fakes or pareidolia?
