  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

A photograph of a woman with a ghostly extra in the background has been circulating the Internet.

Quote

The image was originally posted on Reddit by Daniel Tanner from New Hampshire who noticed something unusual in one of his friend's Facebook photographs. The picture shows a woman kneeling alongside her dog while the faint image of a mysterious figure can be seen peering through the door in the background.

Nice window reflection of something behind the camera...

I think that I could exorcise this ghost with a rag and a little glass cleaner.

Doesn't look like something that was ever alive. Has a very doll-like, artificial quality about it.

I reject your reality, and substitute my own! Mostly because yours is boring as hell.

It's just a ghost, what's the big deal?

Wherever there's a problem, there's solutions.
Answers are found from a wide deep perspective, from opened mind's eyes.
From where good and bad stay silent and you hear the real cause and effect, and big picture.
Giving up is wasting your time, but also necessary to find the true cause you didn't find yet.
Staying in the path is necessary only when there's trueness in that path.

Looks like another ghost app photo imo, the low quality of the image looks like it was taken with a cellphone.  The fact that their veteran photo expert is never named is likewise suspicious in my book.

I don't think it's a case of pareidolia as the image is far to well defined, not really a Jesus on my handkerchief mind trick. I think its shopped.

I'd go with that too. But for the 15 year veteran photo expert to say (in essence), 'since I can't find manipulation (digitally or otherwise), therefore I think that it probably might be a ghost'...

Personally, I think that it is either a smudge on the window glass or, as also said, a reflection or, as you said 'shopped'. The simpler answer is usually correct. To jump on the ghost bandwagon seems premature.

But if there were more than one example from the same house, I'd be far more interested. There isn't, so I'm not.

If a ghost is supposed to be the same size as a person then it seems a little small, even for a child.  The scale is wrong to be standing at that height in the door window.
And what is this photo experts name?  Did I just miss it?

Forget the ghost ... what about the creepy looking hell dog with glowing, anime-style eyes?

It kinda looks like the reflection of a picture / portrait.

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

  • Science is a road trip and facts are the photos we take on the way, the fuel that propels us is ignorance.

Posted 04 September 2013 - 03:47 PM

I do not think this is pareidolia, but I am looking into the possibility, that an image may stay etched in the glass after lightning strikes. For example; if a little girl was standing near this window, say 50 years ago during a storm, the radiation may have burned a very slight image in the glass. You would not be able to see it except at certain angles with light refracting just perfect. There are two other possibilities in my opinion, a hoax or this is a spirit!
