Ghostly figure turns up in Facebook photo

Who is the mysterious extra ? Image Credit: Reddit / Daniel Tanner
A photograph of a woman with a ghostly extra in the background has been circulating the Internet.
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.

"My friend has been claiming for months that her house is haunted," Tanner wrote. "Her husband took this pic a few days ago." Tanner maintains that the woman and her husband had been the only people present in the house at the time the picture was taken.

Opinions on the image have been mixed with theories ranging from a random shape or pattern in the reflection to a deliberate hoax.

Some even believe the picture to show something genuinely unexplained and consider it one of the most convincing ghost photographs to appear online in some time.

I honestly think it is a reflection from inside the house of a young girl standing next to an open door (which is slighlty angled as should be) and she appears to be looking at the woman who was being photographed. If that is a ghost, is that a ghost door next to her? And look at the trash, 2 pizza boxes. Did they both eat one? Or were there more people there than they claimed? And if that was from yesterday, doesn't he take the trash out when it's full? Lazy guy

Yeah gotta say this looks like a reflection or a deliberate hoax....could even be a phone App as previously pointed out. I know when we are looking at photos of apparitions we often complain abut a lack of clarity and attribute these things to camera flare of lens aberrations, but conversely this image seems, dare I say it, a little TOO clear.

In all honestly it looks quite possible to just be a regular human being peeping. While creepy not paranormal. Of all the ghost photo's I've seen this one looks the least like an actual ghost.

I have seen both photos, both represented in this thread, before. Yeah, I can clearly seen something, and it may seem creepy, but photos can be doctored. I am not saying these are, but with the art of photo shop, ghost apps, and stuff, why even bother taking it for what it is. To be perfectly honest, I also wanted to comment that I seem to be the only one who doesn't seem to think that the weeping angles are not that deadly. Am I? Yeah, what they do, seems menacing, they're bad, and yes, down right creepy. But you really don't die prematurely. Granted, to the present, you end up de... [More]

I love how they are masking her face adding a black strip over her eyes only. Like that suppose to protect her identity. Well if this women will be my coworker or friend, etc , i will recognize her right away. What is the point , lol?

Just because it looks like a face does not mean it is a face.
