Ghost Photo: The Man in the Rig

30 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

The story behind this pic, taken in Alberta, Canada, is that the oil rig was empty at the time of the photo but that a man had died there recently.

Do you see the ghost?

Nope.

I could let my pareidolia run wild (a really big bald guy with glasses who has impossibly short legs and a towel over his shoulder. Oh, and an Alien emerging from his chest while two robotic guards are shooting at him), but... no.

He looks rather put-out over still having to be at work even in the afterlife.

I agree, this is slave labor!

I doubt he gets a coffee break.

No I don't see him. I see some blurry or out of focus details that could be mistaken for a person.

That strengthens the case for it being pareidolia.

Perfect face, glasses on nose and ear, hairline looks good.

Think it's a reflection in the window of someone standing out of photo.

Ghost VS pareidolia.

And the winner is.........pareidolia.

The thing is, they stated that no one was at the oilrig, so who took the photo?

The photo was apparently taken for the 'Nabors '89 calendar', which was for the people who worked on that rig, and it wasn't until the photo was printed that someone noticed something strange in the picture.

I see a truck and an oil rig - anything more is simply what someone wants to see.
