A couple claims they discovered images of a ghostly Victorian girl when flicking back through family photos taken during a trip to the museum.  
John Burnside and Shona Backhouse, from Wakefield, West Yorkshire, say they had a 'funny feeling' when they visited the Castle Museum in York two years earlier with their son Johnthomas, then 18 months.


Read and see the photo http://www.dailymail...s_campaign=1490

It is easier to claim it is paranormal than taking the hard route and find out what really happened.

I know it may seem uncharitable, but I'm going to say "photoshop job."  The girl in the portrait really can't be said to be wearing Victorian clothing (you can't actually see her clothes) but the hairstyle and the fixed stare are very typical of portraits of that era.

You are on the right path but it isn't photo shop, it something much easier.

There's an app for that.

Agreed. Same exact pose in each of the photos.

Even the ghost is rolling her eyes.

I don't have any academic background or qualification or life.
However, I can absorb all substances into the body from my eyes.

The ghost girl seen with Shona Backhouse in the first photo is dressed in something that girls wore in the 17th Century.

The ghost girl in the second photo is from another era and she's got bright eyes, typical of phantoms. It's not the same girl in the other picture.

Not everything is explained

Actually if you look closely you can see it is the same girl in each picture in the same pose.  The same hair parting in the middle of the hair, the same dark band on the left arm below the shoulder, the same pose in each pic, etc.  

The Internet is full of cheap hoaxes like this where people take a boring photo on their iPhone, use an app to add a ghost where you pick the ghost you want, place it and size it and it adds it in, they then phone their local newspaper who are probably all too happy to fill column inches and add fluff stories to their webpage who suck it up and publish it.

Don't fall for goofy nonsense like this.

Excellent.  Are you collecting screens from ghost apps?

Great.  A nice source for when the next Daily Mail articles inevitably get posted here.
