Umm... that 1st one totally looks like some normal guy (probably the old woman's very much alive husband) standing behind her with the bright sunlight behind him making him look a little blurry.

I've seen the 2nd one before. It's pretty cool, but hasn't that one already been debunked??

I'm really starting to sound like a total naysayer here heh. :innocent:

By the way, I think your aunt in the photo totally looks like the ghost in the pic because the leaves behind her are bright colored, yet she is black and white. What the heck is up with that pic???   :blink:

"Seax - I looked at your picture yesterday, and thought it looked really eerie and authentic, do you know any History about the picture or your great Aunt?"

How did you get authentic from that? I can't be the only one that has noticed the woman and the background seem like 2 totally different pics put together. My question is why? I mean I didn't think cameras back then (judging by her clothes) could even show colors that lush in the background. But the colors of her are authentic of photos of the time (notice how her skin is a gray instead of flesh toned).

*EDIT* - Yeah, the color showing in the leaves wasn't even availible in pictures until many many years later:

"The first color plate, Autochrome, invented by the French Lumière brothers, reached the market in 1907. It was based on a 'screen-plate' filter made of dyed dots of potato starch, and was the only color film on the market until German Agfa introduced the similar Agfacolor in 1932. In 1935, American Kodak introduced the first modern ('integrated tri-pack') color film, Kodachrome, based on three colored emulsions. This was followed in 1936 by Agfa's Agfacolor Neue. Unlike the Kodachrome tri-pack process, the color couplers in Agfacolor Neue were integral with the emulsion layers, which greatly simplified the film processing. Most modern color films, except Kodachrome, are based on the Agfacolor Neue technology. Instant color film was introduced by Polaroid in 1963."

Argh! Every time I look at it it rises more questions, and every question that arises makes me look at it again!  :wacko:

Hey Jerry Only,

I was messing with the photo experimenting on putting color to it...I am posting the original photo that I have not tried to colorize.

Thanks for the input.

There are 10^11 stars in the galaxy. That used to be a huge number. But it's only a hundred billion. It's less than the national deficit! We used to call them astronomical numbers. Now we should call them economical numbers.

There is no conclusive evidence. No evidence of photoshop as far as I know, and these have been around forever. FBA's can take a real to life human form and look just like normal people. It is rare, but it can happen.

I haven't really done the research to prove or disprove but I have read many forum threads on these 2 pictures and have never seen a real explanation either way.

Very impressive pictures!! I especially like the second one the face is so clear and the photo was taken many years before it became so easy to manipulate photographs via internet/computers etc. It doesnt rule out some sort of double exposure though but it dont look like one.

It's all good fun until someone loses an eye

The below is one of my favorites. It was first posted on Reddit, and although it's not exactly ghostly, it still scares me. The explanation is supposed to be as follows:

"This is about my Uncle. I think it was the late 70s or 80s; I cant remember which, but my uncle is old hes like 50 now. Anyway he took a trip to the Grand Canyon with his friends. They were driving along the grand canyon and stopped near this area with hedges/brush on the side of the canyon and decided to take one of your standard funny Grand Canyon pictures. They had a really funny idea; my uncle was to stand on the side of the canyon with a fishing rod and pretend to fish off the side of the canyon. So they ended up taking the picture, and shortly after packed up and drove off. So they took the roll to be developed and when they saw the picture they noticed something very strange. In the picture, not far behind my Uncle, was a man dressed in all black with pale white skin standing there in the brush just staring at the camera with a knowing smirk on his face. He said he and his two friends were in that spot for about 15 minutes. My Uncle and his friends claimed that they did not know this man, that they were the only ones in the spot, and the Grand Canyon was vacant of tourists at this time of year."

This is the link to the page where the picture was discussed and reviewed:http://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comments/159kdp/what_is_an_extremely_darkcreepy_true_story_most/c7kitcgimage.jpg

This is one of my favorites too.

Unfortunately it's just a kid wearing glasses which are reflecting the flash. When the negative was released, it was very obvious.

I heard it was taken during a ghost investigation and its possibly one of the investigators, Paul Bartz, standing on his knees with the glowing eyes due to infrared film.
