I can see the "face" in the highlighted area but agree with the other posters, it's just our brains interpretting the pattern into something meaningful. Still, if unusual things are happening then keep snapping pics ;)

i do. But i have never caught anything like that before, or since(Besides the occasional orb picture). I find it strange that i find both of my pillows on the ground and since my camera was right next to me, i decided to take a picture and a face appears. Also a couple nights ago the family was getting ready to leave somewhere and in my room(the room the picture is in) we could see a bright blue light when all of the lights were off. At first we thought it was my Laptop Computer Light on standby phase but i said no because i shut my lid before i walked out of my room.

Everyone should know this rule regarding ghost photos: If you cannot spot the "face" within a 1-second glance through the photo, and the "face" only appears after closer inspection, then it Pareidolia.

I believe you. I just don't see a face, that's all. Maybe there is some type of photo program that would allow you to be able to see the face more clearly?? I know on several photo programs they can help you sharpen and zoom into an image to see it clearly.

I could agree that there is a face on the pillow but not to the lamp. Maybe your imagination is pretty developed.

Indeed, I think its just our minds interpretting patterns, and some minds see more "meaning" in patterns than others.

Welcome guys, nice to have a couple more seemingly level-headed individuals to join the ranks!

Guys has anyone ever seen a Green Orb before? This is the first time that i have captured a Green Orb in a Photo instead of the normal white ones. I toke this picture because the dogs were growling at something in the area where the orb is and when i plugged it in the computer this thing showed up. I didn't capture any other Orb photos in any of the other 6 pictures after this.

That's a dust spec illuminated by the flash of your camera, nothing more.

Oh, and there is no face on the head board, you're trying too hard to see things that aren't there.

Hey Steve, I believe tha tyou believe there are strange things going on in your house lately.  The face you see in the picture is not coming up for me. That really only means that I can tsee it.  If you still feel that there is something paranormal going on in your house, then start investigating it, but remember that just because you think it is paranormal does not mean that it is.  A lot of times there is perfectly logical and reasonable explanation for things we dont understand.
Oh I almost forgot about the orb. :no:
Its dust.

Have to agree with Keninsc and Mekelyn, it looks like dust to me. Keep trying! :)

There is nothing paranormal about so-called "orbs". Orbs are not ghosts. They are perfectly normal photographic artifacts, as the examples below will show.


http://en.wikipedia....#Example_images


Some probable causes of photographic artifacts are listed below. There are probably other possibilities, none of them paranormal.
  • Dust on the lens.
  • Dirt in the camera.
  • Internal reflections in the lens structure, also known as "lens flare".
  • Deliberate multiple exposures.
  • Objects very close to lens.
  • Poor quality digital cameras.
  • Poor quality optics.
  • Deliberate digital editing of photographs.
  • Flash reflections from shiny objects in the room.
  • Contamination during processing of conventional film.
  • Contamination during printing of conventional prints.
  • Scanner anomalies.
  • Dust on the scanner glass.
  • Bad or outdated film.


I still await the compelling Exhibit A.

It is essential for a baby to know its mother, and for an adult to know its friends and enemies. The human brain has a huge area dedicated to recognizing faces that are actually almost identical. It is a product of our evolution that we can look pretty much anywhere and find a face or part of a face.

I didn't see any kind of face. I wouldn't be so much worried about a face, though...something moved your stuff. The only explanation I can think of is that on your way out you moved the comforter which threw the pillows off of your bed. Other than that, if it is an isolated incident, I'd say nothing to worry about.
