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
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
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
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
4. Spirit in the Woods?
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
