    10 famous ghost pictures and their story

    Post by SPADEZ on Sun Aug 01, 2010 5:32 pm

    Ghosts are notoriously camera shy. More
    times than not when someone claims to have photographic evidence of a
    ghost it is usually a Photoshop job, trick photography, or it is “orbs”.
    Orbs are actually just a light source reflecting off dust, bugs, or
    precipitation that is in the air and the only way your camera knows how
    to deal with this reflection are the balls of light that one often
    associates with orbs. Some photographic evidence of ghosts does exist,
    however. This photographic evidence has stood up to scrutiny and stood
    the test of time.
    1. Group Photo





    LINK

    A squadron of the Royal Air Force
    assembled to take a mundane photograph, but after the picture was
    developed the squad quickly realized that this was no ordinary picture.
    Standing behind one of his mates was the two days deceased Freddy
    Jackson. Jackson was a mechanic for the Royal Air Force and served
    onboard the H.M.S. Daedalus. He had been working when we was killed in a
    freak-accident by an air plane propeller, but Jackson did not let his
    death get in the way of him showing up on time for the group photo two
    days later. Several of the other men in the photo confirmed that it was
    in fact Jackson’s face in the background of the picture.


    2. The Lady of Bachelor’s Grove





    LINK

    This photo was taking at Bachelor’s
    Grove Cemetery in Illinois. While it does not get the press that
    Illinois Resurrection Cemetery does, many experts in the field of the
    paranormal consider it to be one of the most haunted graveyards in the
    world. So what is so unique about a photo of a women sitting on a stone
    in a graveyard? According to the people who took this photo the woman
    was not there when the picture was taken. The photo was taking by Mari
    Huff who is a member of the respected paranormal investigating group
    Ghost Research Society, so this helps lend some credibility to the
    story. In my opinion, it looks to be a staged photograph but I
    definitely think the photo’s authenticity is worth a debate.


    3. Cowboy Ghost Or Mysterious Stranger





    LINK

    In 1996, Ike Clanton thought it would be
    a pretty cool idea to deck himself out in cowboy attire and have his
    friend snap a picture of him while he stood in Boothill Graveyard in the
    famous Tombstone, Arizona. Upon examining the picture Clanton noticed
    a man in the background of the photo that was not there when the
    photograph was taken. Clanton was intrigued by this and set out to
    recreate the photo with a friend standing in the background and
    discovered it was impossible to recreate the picture without having the
    legs visible.


    4. Spirit in the Woods?





    LINK

    This photo was taken by Reverend R.S.
    Blance at Corroboree Rock near Alice Springs, Australia in 1959. In the
    woods with branches in front of her appears to be a transparent women.
    If a photo like this was taken today one would likely think that it was
    a fake ghost picture created in Photoshop, but Photoshop didn’t exist
    in 1959. Double exposure is also unlikely given how visible the areas
    in front and behind the women are.


    5. The Fire Girl





    LINK

    On November 19, 1995 Wem Town Hall in
    England caught on fire. The fire raged on all through the night until
    the building was nothing but rubble. As firefighters battled the
    flames, a local citizen, Tony O’Rahilly, decided to snap some pictures
    of the event. In one of his photographs there appears to be the clear
    image of a little girl standing in front of the inferno. No one
    remembered a young girl being at the scene and there was definitely not a
    young girl in the burning building. Some believe this is the ghost of a
    young girl named Jane Churm who, in 1677, accidentally started a fire
    that destroyed many homes in the town. Jane also died in the fire.
    Perhaps the photo is just smoke creating the amazing illusion of a girl
    or perhaps it is a real ghost.


    6. Ghosts Don’t Call Shotgun





    LINK

    The year is 1959. Mabel Chinnery had
    just spent the day at the cemetery visiting her mother’s grave. To
    finish off a roll of film she snapped a picture of her husband who was
    seated in the front seat of the car awaiting her. She had the pictures
    develop. While looking at the photographs she makes a chilling
    discover. In one of the photos her deceased mother is sitting in the
    backseat of her car.


    7. Monk In Church





    LINK

    In the summer of 1954, Reverend K.F.
    Ford was taking pictures of his church that is located in England.
    While snapping pictures he accidentally captured one of the most famous
    and perhaps undeniable pictures of a ghost ever taken. In the picture
    is what appears to be a monk with a ghastly face. The photo has been
    examined and it was determined that it is neither a double exposure nor
    had the negative been tampered with.


    8. His Favorite Chair





    LINK

    Have you ever had a favorite chair or
    perhaps a preferred spot on the couch that is just more comfortable than
    the other areas of the couch? So did Lord Combermere. Lord Combermere
    unfortunately got hit with a horse drawn carriage in 1891. During his
    funeral his family hired a photographer to take some family pictures.
    His burial took place over 4 miles away and while the family attended
    the funeral the photographer prepared the camera. When the plate was
    developed it appeared that the apparition of Lord Combermere was sitting
    in his favorite chair. Perhaps the coffin wasn’t comfortable enough.


    9. Brown Lady





    LINK

    This photograph is considered by many to
    be the most famous “ghost” photograph. It was taken in 1936 at Raynham
    Hall in Norfolk, England and still today cannot be explained. The
    photogenic ghost is thought to be that of Dorothy Townshend who lived in
    Raynham Hall with her husband, Charles Townshend, in the 1700s. Legend
    has it that Dorthy was a mistress to Lord Wharton and Charles found out
    about it. He then imprisoned her in a remote section of the Hall until
    she died from his abuses. Legal records show she died in 1726, but
    many believe this to be a sham, as Charles wanted people to believe she
    was dead, so he could punish her for her infidelity.



    10. Stairway to the Afterlife





    LINK

    In 1966, Rev. Ralph Hardy visited the
    National Museum in Greenwich, England. While in the Queen’s House
    section of the Museum, Hardy snapped a photo of the beautiful staircase.
    Upon developing his photography Hardy made a shocking discovery. One
    of his photos showed a ghostly figure climbing the staircase. The
    figure was not in the photography when Hardy took the picture. The
    photograph and the negatives were examined by experts, some of which
    were from Kodak, and all have concluded that the negative was not
    tampered with nor is it a double exposure.

    Are these ten photos proof that ghosts
    exist? Is this proof of an afterlife? The problem is that there is
    always room for a hoax or accidental fake when one does not have
    multiple witnesses and insurmountable evidence. These ten photos are
    absolutely amazing, regardless. Some of these pictures have undoubtedly
    given even the most hardened skeptic goose bumps and I don’t believe
    they should be simply written off as fakes and ignored. These
    photographs should continue to be examined and researched.
