I was taking a photo of my grandfathers grave (W.M. Towell) recently in Brisbane Queensland, Australia. A friend was looking at the photo and inquired how old the grave to the left of my grandparents grave was.
When I zoomed the photo in I immediately saw a woman’s face looking back from the centre of the gravestone. After looking for a while longer not really believing what I was seeing I noticed to the top left of the headstone is what appears to three Australian Soldiers wearing their army Slouch Hats. On the right hand side of the headstone is what appears to be a young women with maybe flowers in her hair.
I hope to hear back on what your opinion is on what I have captured in this picture.

Hello, I recently bumped into an old friend who I hadn’t seen for months. He knows that I’m interested in all paranormal and decided to strike up a very interesting conversation on UFOs and ghosts. We spoke for hours and the time flew by.
He then showed me a photo on his camera that he insisted he’d taken of his friend Jenny and her Aunty in a local old pub. In the upper left corner we can see a very bright anomaly shaped similar to a face, possibly with horns! He swears the strange luminous object wasn’t there when he took the photo, and to prove to me this was so he offered to drive me approximately two miles to this old inn.
When we got to the pub we got a drink and he walked us over to the exact spot where the photo was taken (on 15th March 2009). We even took another several shots from the precise …

Hi, This could either be a very thought provoking photograph, or… nothing at all. I don’t know the answer, that’s why I’ve decided to share it with you.
We had been on vacation to England’s south coast, I believe we were in Poole, Dorset. There were two couples, Simon and Mandy Lawrence and myself with my girlfriend. It was a summers evening around 10 pm, August ’06.
I’ve had this picture for three years, but when I got a virus in my PC my friend had to wipe the hard-drive etc to clean up the virus threat. I was upset that I’d lost this and many other photo’s during the clean up operation without saving the pictures. However, my good friend Shaun Williams managed to retrieve these old files for me just recently.
I still don’t know what to make of this photo. Is it really just some natural anomaly or something more,much more? The main reason prompting me to …

Hi. I’ve always had an avid interest in UFOs, ghosts and all paranormal. This is the first photograph I’ve ever taken that has completely overwhelmed me! I was speechless to say the least.
Me and my ex-girlfriend had recently returned from a great trip in northern England, mainly the desolate, remote and frankly quite eerie North Yorkshire moors. I had my new digital camera and took literally hundreds of pictures of the beautiful panoramic landscapes. Now, I often capture many ‘orbs’ but this photo is simply fantastic.
We noticed nothing at the time the picture was taken, however upon arriving back home in the Midlands around a week later I was scanning photos on my PC when my girlfriend suddenly grabbed my hand and said ‘STOP!’ She insisted I zoom in to the centre left of one particular picture, (SD 10306) which I’d taken of the rather stunning snow covered fields. (The date on the alien/ghost picture is 19.01.2009, time …

In 1861 when a Boston photographer named William H. Mumler discovered that “extras” could appear in a photo if the glass plate were a recycled one with a residual image. Spiritualism by then being all the rage, Mumler began to produce “spirit photographs” for credulous sitters, including – after the assassination of her husband – Mary Todd Lincoln. Eventually Mumler was exposed when it was discovered that some of the alleged spirits in his photos were still-living Bostonians!
There were – and are – many ways to produce fake spirit photos in addition to double exposures. One technique was used in earlier times when long exposures were necessary. A suitably garbed assistant would slip from behind a curtain, stand briefly, then disappear again – this taking place behind the unaware sitter who was intent on remaining motionless. The result would be a faint, transparent “spirit” image beside the solid posed figure.
Mumler, was charged with fraud in New York City …

Jane Churm Fire Girl Ghost
Here is a very well known ghost photograph taken in 1995 which contains a girl in the doorway in front of a blazing fire. The building is the Wem town hall of Shropshire, England. This picture was taken from the other side of the street. The girl was not seen at the time that the photograph was taken and was only noticed after the picture was developed.
No bodies were discovered in the burned out structure nor was anyone reported as missing. However, according to the local folklore a girl by the name of Jane Churm had burned down the town hall building in 1677 when she accidentally dropped a burning candle. The ghost of this young girl has been reported to haunt the Wem town hall building since that fire.
Could this be the ghost of Jane Churm captured in this photograph? Is it possible that this ghost had something to do with the …

Here is another older photograph that was taken in 1942 at a wedding, hence the nickname “Wedding Day Ghost”. Many people believe this photo shows a ghost in the trees behind the newlyweds. Who is she? Could it be that she is a past love interest to the groom? Perhaps she is angry that he is getting married.
What do you think about this “ghost picture”? Is this really a ghost that we see which seems to be flying from out of the tree branches? Or is it just an optical illusion, an exceptionally detailed example of pareidolia?
Here is what some of our forum members had to say about this picture:
“Fake or not, great picture. Some of the best photos I have seen are from earlier time periods such as this.” ~ aprofenno
“Great picture, seems like that ghost was a little jealous and getting ready to give the bride “what for”. For me, it’s hard to believe …
