Now this just goes to show how we all see different things. My immediate response was 'oh, yeah!' but I was seeing something different and in a different place. I've crudely outlined what I saw; wait for the .gif to load fully.

Indeed, as with many paranormal occurences, its all in the eye of the beholder, thats why some people see a weather balloon and others a spaceship from another world ;)

Either that or it's not really there agent Mulder.

Then you see something?


Sorry I really hate double negitives........

Might be barely an outline on that pic, but barely. Could be the way the pixels are moving on the camera.

Possible ghost photo - Moreton Corbet Castle

Posting this for a friend who took the picture:-

whist taking a walk around a local ruin called Moreton Corbet castle yesterday my wife was taking some pics with her new phone when she caught the follwing spooky image, i promise it is original and no other pics in the set had any abnormalities, the place is well known for paranormal activity and now i can see why!!!!

The first and most obvious question for your friend would be 'Is there a big grey stain on the graveyard/cemetery wall?'

It doesn't, on the face of it, appear to be stain because - if one is to assume a figure shape - the head and upper shoulder section continue vertically as the top wall slopes back away from the photographer.

I Can't quite decide if the discolouration/outline continues down over the snow. When I first looked, I was inclined to say it did, but covering the top part and looking at the snow in isolation, I'm not so inclined to say it does. If it doesn't, the figure - if human in form - would seem to be incomplete.

So, graves, whose are they? They look modern.

Wikipedia gives this (usual caveats apply)

Moreton Corbet Castle
Haunting


It is said the grounds are haunted by the ghost of Paul Holmyard. He was a Puritan, who at the time of their persecution, was given protection by Vincent Corbet. But as the Puritans became more fanatical, Vincent Corbet felt he could no longer provide protection, and Paul Holmyard was forced to leave. Paul Holmyard took shelter in the nearby woods. One day, when Vincent Corbet was planning some more building work, Paul Holmyard appeared and put a curse on him. From that day, Vincent Corbet never lived in the building again.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moreton_Corbet_Castle

Also:

The Puritan of Moreton Corbet Castle

The house, built on the site of an earlier castle, was begun in the late 15th Century by Sir Robert Corbet who brought the plans back from Italy but died before its completion.

He was succeeded by Sir Vincent Corbet who continued the work during the reign of King James I - when persecuting Puritans was considered the thing to do.

Although Sir Vincent was not a puritan he did not like to see them treated harshly and so he took in a puritan called Paul Holmyard who was his neighbour.

But as the puritan's ideals became more fanatical he told Holmyard to go from his property as he felt he could no longer protect him.

Holmyard survived for some time in the local woods by eating whatever he could.

Eventually he risked coming into the open and made his way to Morton Corbet where, upon his meeting Sir Vincent, he cursed the family.

"Woe unto thee, hard hearted man, the lord has hardened thy heart as he hardened the heart of the Pharaoh, to thine own destruction.

"Rejoice not in thy riches, not in monuments of thy pride, for neither thou, nor thy children, nor thy children's children shall inhabit these halls.

"They shall be given up to desolation; snakes, vipers and unclean beasts shall make it their refuge, and thy home shall be full of doleful creatures.."
[No citation or source available online.]

The curse was fulfilled - at least insofar as Vincent and his son, Andrew, never lived at the house because they were so afraid of the curse. Eventually .

On a moonlit night the bedraggled figure of Paul Holmyard stalks the empty walls making sure no building goes on.

Could the thread title be amended to include the place name instead of friends (which is misleading, and should have been friend's anyway!)?

The white area extends onto the ground so I'd say a blob of some kind. Camera artefact or general whatnot.

Please consider that many readers are not technically-minded and may not understand specialised optical jargon.

Apologies. The brevity is merely to spare readers of my familiarity with optics and associated processes. Of semi-translucent psychic phenomena I know almost nothing, so it could of course be one of them things. Blob fits better than revenant monk.

My Lord, you think it's the ghost of General Whatnot!
Possible, possible...

I second this. Otherwise, we'll all think it's Joey's ghost.

Possible Ghost Pic

At my work, we have makeup/cosmetic events and people take pictures at them sometimes for our head office. Anyway, the other day one of the girls at work was looking through pics from about a year ago and discovered you can VERY clearly see a disembodied head behind one of the employees.

If you look to the left of the blonde woman, you can clearly see a woman's face glaring at the camera. (I have erased the faces of the 2 employees). Her face is smaller than the other 2 people in the photo and the edges are blurred, which is strange.

The pic was taken with a digital camera and printed at our store photo lab. It had never been uploaded to a computer ( so it couldn't have been photo shopped).
I have been told that there is one possible way for an image to appear in another photograph: If the memory card had been previously erased, some of it could possibly have remain behind on the memory card and shown up on another photo.

I'm not declaring this is definitely a ghost...just wanted some other opinions

P.S... WEIRD, unexplainable things happen in that department!

No, I am pretty sure that can't happen.

I'd say that theoretically it could, because the images are never totally erased. The police can have erased data retrieved and you can buy the software that does it yourself.

Why the random remaining pixesls would be the same ones that made up just a face is another matter, though. ;)

It would be worth putting the pic on a computer where it can be examined more carefully. Changes in size, contrast, colour intensity, etc, may highlight new clues.

Since you're dealing in make-up, I assume there'd be a few mirrors around. If there was one in the background, it may have caught the face of a passing customer. If this customer was behind the photographer, her image would be further away than the subjects of the photo, which explains why it is smaller and out of focus. (I assume the camera focuses automatically on the subject.) The face appears to be glancing at the camera and the subjects because she is - only not from where she appears to be! (She's actually looking at the photographer's back, and the faces of the subjects.)

Rynner's post makes sense, but the mirror would be an odd shape. Can you re-take the photograph? Or show us some other pics in the same place? There's no chance it could be a cut-out or other type of advertisement banner?Cheers. ;)

It could be someone's face reflected in one of those round vanity, or shaving, mirrors. The sort that can be adjusted to an angle and that have their own stand, turned partially side on, possibly? There's something odd going on, under the face. Is it part of a stand, or some sort of armature, attached to the display shelving, allowing you to pull out the mirror and adjust it to your height and to the best light? If it's a magnifying mirror, then perhaps the face is in better focus, compared to the rest of the mirror frame?

I was thinking of a circular or oval frameless mirror, something like a man's shaving mirror.

Yes, you can 'undelete' files because when a file is deleted, only the header information in the file is changed. The rest of the data is still there.
Once you overwrite that 'deleted' data with new files, then it becomes increasingly difficult to resurrect that old data.

However, I have never heard of part of a deleted file leaking through into a currently-active file.

The face does look oddly cut off on the left side, like you could draw a straight line from the top to the bottom of it.

I'd guess a mirror image too, though the mirror might have to be oddly shaped.

Yeah, like that. Looking at the pic again, the ghost looks slightly out of focus compared to the rest of it, suggesting it's been grafted onto the photo, but the way the blonde lady's head blocks out half of it suggests it was actually there.
