Ghost Photo from my blog

#1  Postby jerome » Feb 13, 2011 6:10 pm

Just in case anyone interested - it's a pretty short ghost if real! http://jerome23.wordpress.com/2011/02/1 ... e-theatre/

However I will say the person who took the photo is a friend, and to my mind totally sincere. Nothing odd was seen at time of photo. Do feel free to comment with good explanations, here or on my blog :)

Given that it was a ghost hunt, a certain amount of expectation & confirmation bias might creep in too. Here's a crop from a photo taken locally on the hills. Guesses as to the figure's identity?

What makes me think pareidolia on the one on my blog is that when I first saw it I saw a man with a long grey beard in evening dress. Then when I saw the "shark fin" as an arm I saw it as a much larger woman in a black hat.

What makes me doubt pareidolia is the amusing story of the Wem Ghost - a photo of a figure of a girl in the doorway of the burning town hall taken in the 1990's, that was very well debunked as pareidolia by ASSAP who showed how it was a spontaneous image that arose from a falling beam, and demonstrated clearly how it was just pareidolia. Except it WASN'T - it was in fact a deliberate fake, as was exposed when the original image from a postcard was located earlier this year. So now I am wary of claims of pareidolia. Given there were I think 30 plus people in the building, i think this could be a real person - the only problem being the gallery was locked off at the time.

What's old Nick doing with his right hand ?
A soul in tension that's learning to fly
Condition grounded but determined to try
Can't keep my eyes from the circling skies
Tongue-tied and twisted just an earthbound misfit, I
