Ghostly face appears in haunted tour photo

The unexpected extra was discovered in a photo taken during a recent tour of an abandoned hospital.
Phil Barron had been leading a 32-strong group of paranormal enthusiasts on a tour of the allegedly haunted Newsham Park Hospital in Liverpool when the photograph was taken.

It wasn't until the image was uploaded online however that the ghostly addition was noticed.

"I took the snap and then put my phone away and during the break three hours later I sent it over to the office to be uploaded and thought nothing more of it," said Barron.

"It was only the following day when I was woken by a flurry of instant messages and saw the number of comments on the post I had a proper look at the photo."

"There's been no Photoshop work - I just lightened the picture a little as it was quite dark."

The creepy face is near the center between the two furthest rows (see Tweets above/below.)

Additional close-ups of the image can also be viewed - here.

"I've seen shadows walking around people, seen a glass move on a Ouija board I've heard knocks and bangs that are really loud when people aren't there," said Barron.

"I've never actually seen a full apparition - I think that's the holy grail for most people."

I said this yeas ago and I still say it now. People need to go to school to learn how to use a dslr and understand aperture, flash and various things to understand what they are taking. This is what a ghost hunter SHOULD know before going on the field. They also need own a dslr and various equipment. Sadly, any random person can proclaim they are a ghost hunter as they show a bit of smudge or photoshop a ghost as evidence.

That sounds like hard work to me.

Yes, and your average para-normal 'researcher' isn't up for that sort of behavior... If I can draw an analogy, I used to work at a large marine research centre. Our 'clients' ranged from lowly first year marine biology students, thru to professors from around the world. Without exception, allof those folks (many of whom were not yet 'real' researchers, but were aspiring to be..)fully understood the need to use quality equipment that was suited to the task, and they would not be seen dead using 'toys' like camera phones.. Be it photography equipment, or photomicrography equipment, or gas c... [More]

Yeah, but that sounds like it might cost money for a DSLR and decent lens.

All of that aside, it's clearly just a regular person in the shadow of the person standing in front and to the left of her. Look at the shadow pattern on the wall and extrapolate. Reading some of the comments from people on their Facebook page who took the tour and they are least they had fun!

I agree with everyone else, it's fake.

I don't think it's fake at all. I think it's just a normal person in the shadow of someone else. It's certainly not paranormal if that's what you mean.

That is what I mean. "Fake" as in "not paranormal/otherworldly".

I see some facial similarities of the main ghost face with the blonde girl (guy?) with glasses to the immediate upper left. The blonde also has a weird anomaly around their neck which looks like an out of place beard, or is it a scarf? It looks blobbed on? There's also a strange strip of light below the blonde which could be a cell phone at an angle to the camera's view. This looks too fishy fromsomeone out to make a buck, and for the other reasons pointed out by other posters here. I'm a tortured soul so let me smile for the camera that's miraculously the size of a deck of cards which from ... [More]
