A tourist who visited a notorious haunted mansion in Ireland believes he may have photographed the ghost of a little girl.

Thomas Beavis, 21, from Lewisham, made the spine-tingling discovery as he flicked through his camera on the drive home from Loftus Hall in Wexford.

Awesome real looking image. I know nothing of cameras and faking photos so i'll see what develops from our resident pros on this one. Would be nice to be real though.   :unsure2:

Seen my share of things like these ~ on 35mm negatives and studio silver plates it looks not so sharp ~ these days the details are breath taking ~ and implies hoaxes ~ such a shame ~

Looks like two normal ladies in the vestibule to me, looking out at all those pilgrims.

Or two female ghosts maybe. I'm not saying it as a given, but atleast I'm not the only one seeing two individuals that look kind of faded, grey, and transparent unlike the rest of the group. I'm not saying that they are both ghosts, yeah it could be the way the sun's light is hitting them, because they happen to be more in the shade maybe. My question is then, is it two ghosts caught by the camera, or no, he didn't and the second individual in the same shot proves it?

Now, that I took a couple more looks of the shot, the girl does seem to wear what would be the fashion of 1766. The second lady, who happens to be in the same shade  of the girl looks dressed like today. Including with I think is glasses on her face. Could it be a ghost app. that went overboard?

Maybe it is my monitor, my eyes, or artifacts from zooming but it looks like the pixels around the figure in the zoomed image are slightly different color in relation to nearby areas and the edge of this "aura" is distinct.

That entryway is glassed in, is it not?  Looks like a simple reflection of the folks walking up the stairs to me especially given how the two "ghosts" are at different heights.  And, no, I'm not talking about the lady in pink as clearly she couldn't be making that reflection.

Of course the fact that the images are so small makes it kind of hard to blow them up and figure out which guest is making the reflection.

See the couple walking towards the entrance with him in red and her in blue?  It's a reflection of her. She's just opposite where the reflection in the window appears and is facing the right direction. As Rafterman says, it can't be the lady in pink as reflections obviously don't work that way.

How does this kind of nonsense generate any sort of news story or debate or even doubt as to what it is?

edit:  I'm having second thoughts.  The glass should appear to be halfway between an object and it's reflection and she's too far away.  Still, there's a whole crowd of people, and the details aren't very useful, but it's still obviously a reflection.  The optimum conditions for reflections in windows are when one side of the glass is a brightly lit area and the other side is a dimly lit area (that's how "one-sided mirrors" generally work, e.g. a brightly lit interrogation room and a dimly lit viewing room with a highly reflective piece of glass between them).  Daft to think it's a ghost either way.

A reflection of a woman in a window makes you shudder?

I am noticing that the sun is hitting the two grey faded individuals in the same direction as everyone else. The sun's reflection is hitting everyone on their faces all in the same manner, which makes me think it's not a reflection thing. I'm not saying that means that the two grey figures are ghosts, but that I'm don't think it's a reflection.

I'm noticing some smudge marks in front of the two grey figures, almost like the smudge marks are on the window pane right in front of them. I don't know if that means anything.


I'm not feeling any creepy feelings from viewing the two grey figures. Could one be a reannactment player and another a tourist and both of them just happen to look through the window at the time of the shot?

Well, a funny thing about window reflections is that they tend to be faded and washed out looking.  They also tend to be transparent.  That's kinda how glass reflections work.

So I agree with you, it certainly has all the characteristics of a reflection.

The fashion of 1766? Utter nonsense.  Excuse me for being up front with my opinion but it has to be said.  There's absolutely no way you can determine that the woman is wearing clothing that matches the fashion of that particular period in the 18th century (did you even check or do you know what the fashion for girls was in 1766?).  That could be sweatpants and a hoodie for all you can tell with the lack of detail available.
