Ghosts & Hauntings

'Ghost' photographed next to Civil War hospital

What exactly is this thing ? Image Credit: Reddit / Drewb1072
The image, which was posted up on Reddit, shows what has been described as a 'demon-like ghost'.
According to the poster, who goes by the name "Drewb1072" on Reddit, the photograph was taken outside a house in Chattanooga, Tennessee which was once a Civil War army hospital.

"The homeowner warned me and the realtor before we arrived that her house is 'haunted'," he wrote.

"Patients were operated on inside the home and then moved to the field out back where most would die after being placed in tents."

"This photo was taken of the tree's face, and I didn't notice the figure behind it until this evening. I walked all around that field photographing it for the seller, and not once did I see that shape by the fence in person, or in any other shots."
"The fact of the matter is, 1) it's not intentionally faked. I understand you just have to take peoples' word for it. 2) I take photos for a living, not of spirits - but of real estate. I would notice if I needed to remove a garbage bag stuck on a fence or a big piece of fabric hung on the fence. There was NOTHING there after the photo was snapped."

As for what the image actually shows, opinions seem to be mixed.

Some of the users who replied were quite impressed, while others pointed out that the 'ghost' could be any number of things and that there is too little detail in the shot to make it out properly.

Whatever the case, however, there's no denying that it's certainly eerie.

Having one picture and not a couple from different angle make me wonder that there's nothing there to see. One picture, seen the stuff after taking it...pfff. In the best scenario a bird, but could even be a branch from the background...

Take pictures for a living with the cheapest camera you can find. LOL.

       It's very blurry, but, even though it appears to be wearing trousers and a jacket, it appears to be the ghost of a woman as there is a bulge at the correct height to be breasts. It appears to be on the other side of the fence and holding onto the fence with both hands. It looks genuine. I think a  fake would be clearer. It's hard to say what she is holding in her left hand that goes off somewhat to the left on top of the fence.

My common-sense-o-meter buries the needle on the pareidolia side of the screen. Looks like a garden statue of St. Francis, or whover the one was with the animals.

If this supposed to be a pro photo for a realtor, which bit of the house are you trying to sell, the drain pipes? And, it certainly doesn’t show any of the property in a good light if it’s being sold. I call total rubbish.

I've been doing photography wrong all these decades evidently. I use F-stop, Aperture speed and Focus to take pictures that are clear and well lit.    Evidently, I need to just point and click with any old settings and then claim 'demon' and I'll probably sell more.

If that's a chainlink fence topped with barbed wired, it might be a plastic trash bag. Other than that it isn't clear enough to make heads or tales out of it.

He was taking a photo of the tree.

Then he obviously has no idea how to photograph trees.
