The Ghost Photos

Here are the rest of the "ghost" photos I stumbled upon at Yahoo.

(I have to get them out of my system, literally.)

Remember, these are pre-Photoshop pictures and have the patina of early UFO photos, hoaxed (maybe) and otherwise.

(Mouse click over them to see the images larger.)

  • Hello Rich (& All),

    The Cooper/Copper photo (it is the last one of your series) have been debunked and was a "photoshop" hoax (despite "these are pre-Photoshop pictures and have the patina of early UFO photos").

    See for example: https://www.metabunk.org/debunked-cooper-copper-family-ghost-photo.t5536/

    Regards,

    Gilles

  • And the first one is only an "artistic photography" (a vintage snapshot you say? ) among the several ones which inspirated the author Ransom Riggs ("Miss Peregrine 's Home for Peculiar Children" ).

    Like these others (and among them): http://books-to-dream.skyrock.com/3230491479-Miss-Peregrine-s-Home-For-Peculiar-Children-Tome-1-de-Ransom-Riggs.html

  • Merci, beaucoup Gilles....,

    You are a fount of the obscure and a real researcher of the anomalous [UFOs, ghosts, odd bloggers, et al.].

  • I see the first and last have been explained.

    The middle three are pareidolia (although I'm open to other explanations). Might as well look for a face on Mars...

  • Personally I tend to think most (all?) ghost photos are faked or lighting / interpretation distortions that trick the eye and mind. It just doesn't seem like ghosts (if they do exist as we might suggest) are easily photographed.

    I prefer videos of such things instead. Look at the link below but specifically the last sequence (#1) filmed by the author. Interesting...

    Ok no more ghosts....

  • I also noticed that neither of the reflections of the little girl on the edge of the pool are of the little girl with her hand up.
