Trying to understand which of the best pictures of ghosts, immediately encounter a fair amount of subjectivity. It is difficult to be objective in understanding the intangible world and its representation. Here is a list of the most exciting photos of ghosts, each of which has its own history. Whether these shots are real or not is up to each of us.
Today, almost anyone who has mastered graphic packages on a computer can create an unusual photo. But many of these photos were taken years, and even decades ago, when digital cameras and image processing programs simply did not exist. Thus, and to create counterfeits then it was much more difficult than today.
Photo in Queensland, 1946.
In an Australian city, an inconsolable mother lamented her deceased 17-year-old teenage daughter. When the woman photographed the grave, there was no stranger in the frame, and it was deserted nearby. When the same film showed the image of a child sitting on the grave. Mrs. Andrews did not recognize the child, thereby reducing (although not completely eliminating) the probability of double exposure. Later, the researchers found two neighboring graves of young girls nearby. Faces on Watertown, 1924.
This famous photo was taken in 1924, it is believed that it depicts the faces of two recently deceased crew members of the merchant vessel SS Watertown. Typically, experts are skeptical about grainy photos because of the ability of the human brain in the chaos of points to see something unusual, mystical. However, this case is different in that the faces in the photo were identified by all team members. The sailors recognized in the faces of the photograph two of their colleagues, who were suffocated the day before when cleaning the technical compartment of the ship. For the analysis of the photo, even a detective agency was attracted, which could not recognize the signs of forgery.
The ghost from Uem, 1995.
The famous photo of a young girl looking out of a raging fire made a lot of noise at the end of the 20th century. The fire swept the town hall of the town of Wem, Shropshire, England. Firefighters, onlookers and photographers quickly arrived at the scene. No one noticed anything unusual, but after the manifestation of the pictures, everyone was perplexed. A young girl was fixed in the doorway of the burning building. Firefighters immediately rushed to search for the remains of the unfortunate on the ashes, but they could not find anything. Now everyone can put forward his theory about who it could be. Local legends say that it was a young girl named Jane Charm, who accidentally died in a fire in the city in 1677. It is said that her ghost pursued the town hall for a long time. This time the ghost overturned the candle, thus becoming an arsonist.
Barchelor Grove Cemetery, 1991.
This photo is so clear that they are too good to be true. Her most of all others are suspected of being counterfeited. It is alarming only that the photographer was a professional and used high-speed monochrome film, making a unique frame at this day, and not at night, as other researchers of cemeteries. The picture was taken at Barchelor Grove Cemetery, Illinois, on August 10, 1991. Photographer Maria Huff said that at that moment her equipment detected a surge of electromagnetic activity. After developing the film, the silhouette of a woman in a suit sitting on the grave was revealed. Her legs, apparently, are transparent. Although the photograph looks somewhat staged, is not this how the ghost should look like?
The Ghost of Corrobori Roca, 1959.
In the Australian town of Korrobori, the Monk Blans made a famous photo. Around it there are still many disputes – what is depicted on it? Today, with the help of Photoshop, creating such an effect is not difficult, but then there were no software and computers yet – it was 1959.
The ghost on Daedalus, 1919.
This photo is classic in this series. In 1919, retired officer Victor Goddard filmed the crew of the royal ship “Daedalus.” The photographer’s attention was attracted by the transparent face of the person in the upper left corner. Several people from the crew immediately identified a mysterious person. They became a mechanic Freddie Jackson. Only now he died two days ago, hitting the blades of the propeller, and the funeral took place on the day of filming. Probably, the spirit of Freddie aspired last time to stay with his friends and stay on a memorable picture.
Store R-US, 1978 year.
This photo is one of the most famous and mysterious in history. The fact is that at the time of shooting, a lot of people were in the store, which significantly complicates the possibility of forgery. The Californian shop itself is known for a long time for its anomalies, which are constantly happening there. In 1978, here in Sunnyvale, the television program “It’s incredible!” Was filmed. The infrared image showed the image of a young man leaning against the wall. He was not seen by any of the people present at the store at this time. At the same time, an ordinary high-speed shot was taken, which did not show anyone at this place. There is a story that in 1869 at this place a young man died from accidentally inflicted to himself an ax of death wounds. This fact can explain the unusual garb of a ghost.
The ghost of Lord Combermer, 1891.
This famous photo is one of the oldest evidence of this kind of ghost existence. In the library of Lord Sibel Corbett made a unique, as it turned out, snapshot, while the exposure was about an hour. This time was natural for the devices of that time. As a result, a photo appeared with the silhouette of a person sitting in a chair (in any case, the head and hands are located there). While this photograph was being taken, Lord Combermere himself (the commander of the British cavalry) was buried four miles from the house, and his house was empty and locked. Those who knew the lord during life, believe that the figure in the photo looks exactly the same as Combermere used to sit in an armchair during life. Probably, the venerable man just decided to visit his office once more, this time after his death.
The ghost of Chinnerery, 1959.
In 1959, Mrs. Mabel Chinnery decided to visit her mother’s grave. The last shot in the film the woman decided to devote to her husband sitting in the car. After processing the image, a female figure appeared in the back seat of the car. Several members of the family immediately recognized her deceased mother, Mabel. She seemed to sit at her usual place in the back seat, patiently waiting for her return home. The photo was examined by experts who stated that this effect could not be a reflection of light, nor a double exposure. It is curious that the ghost of the mother is opaque at the same time, but rather clear and through it the light does not pass. And even the glasses of ghost glasses seem to reflect the falling light.
The ghost of Lady Brown, 1936.
This photo is undoubtedly the most famous and famous of all evidences of the existence of ghosts. A very controversial shot was taken in 1936 by photographers of the London magazine Zagorodnaya Zhizn, who visited the photo session in Norfolk’s Reinham Hall. The frame is curious because, unlike most photos, a few seconds before the shooting, eyewitnesses actually saw a ghost descending the stairs. Negative photographs were carefully studied by hundreds of experts and skeptics, but no evidence of mystification or double exposure was found. Many consider this frame the best picture of ghosts.
