Ghost in Photo on Australia Grave Stone?

Posted on June 9, 2010

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.

    I see them in the corner!
    That’s really cool…
    I don’t know what australian soldiers look like, But I see three guys in marine-ish caps and a woman that looks kinda like she has light brown hair and a black dress.

  3. chantelle says:

    I can see one soldier with a cap on and the woman kind of when you looked at them did they appear clearer than this? If not im surprised you were able to pck it out but spooky either way

  4. big barney says:

    your claim is far fetched……you can almost say something about anything what you are talking about….even if you look at popcorn ceiling long enough you can see some sort of face….sorry but not just clear enough of a picture to convince me!

  5. LuKe says:

    The girl does not have flowers in her hair on the right she has curls.

  6. cookie says:

    sorry i don’t see any thing =(

  7. Coral says:

    I see it very clearly.Awesome picture !

  8. Jennifer Mills - Young says:

    Unfortunately, I think this just a case of paradolia. I have to admit I looked at the photo for ages and concluded there was nothing there – but if you stare and you try really hard….eventually the images become apparent. I’m an Aussie and familiar with a digger in a slouch hat and while I can see where you are coming from in the markings on the headstones, I just think its random weathering on the headstone. However, once you do SEE the images, the effect of paradolia is they are explicitly clear – so of course NOW I can see the images every time I look at the photo………..but I think if they were of paranormal origin I wouldnt have had to work that hard to find them, like a ‘ where’s wally ‘ exercise and I have already been psychologically given a suggestion that if I looked hard enough I would see them. No surprises there, I eventually did, after staring at every facet of the photo until my brain registered the random pattern that created paradolia. Its a normal phenomena and happens quite often. ( I have regular faces in discoloured toilet tiles where I work and I have seen them in carpets but I can assure you no spirits are emerging from our bathroom floorspace – its just paradolia ) Remember ink blot tests? similar thing.

  11. Amy Sophea Keisser says:

    I dont see anything

  12. Kim says:

    i can see about 7 people standing..and i do see a little girl..didnt see anything at first..but after looking at it for a minute i could make it out

  13. ailane says:

    i’m sorry but i can’t find it!!! :(

  14. debchew says:

    I can see what you talked about and I didn’t have to stare at it for a long time.

  15. ChronicMidori says:

    Ummm……. lol?

    Seriously? This is a joke on the authors part, right?? Your just kidding around, making fun of the gullible people?? You can’t be serious… Right??

    There is nothing paranormal, haunted or even spooky about weather and erosion….

    If your claiming that’s a ghost then what about the bunny I spotted in the clouds the other day? Does that count?

    • Caretaker says:

      ChronicMidori – why so harsh? There was no claim whatsoever that there are ghosts in the picture. In fact here is what was said “…. 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.”

      So as can be seen the person who sent this in says there APPEARS to be a ghost and then they went on to ask for the opinions of others.

      • ChronicMidori says:

        I’m not harsh, I’m sarcastic! Or maybe I’m harshly sarcastic, but I’m still only aiming for humor!

        If you include the title of the story, than actually, the author does claim it’s a ghost. However, if you reread my comment you will notice I never mentioned a ghost either..

        I guess I saw no point in posting a pareidolia for the opinion of others, hence the sarcasm, unless you were trying to see who it fooled, the gullible folk. I stick to my original statement considering that was my opinion of the photo. (which is what you say the author was asking for..)

        “There is nothing paranormal, haunted or even spooky about weather and erosion�.”

        No body else found the ‘bunny in the clouds’ comment humorous? ‘Comeon that was funny!

        • sharayah says:

          yes the bunny thing was funny made me LOL.but i do see the girl &the three men on the head stone but it don’t look like ghosts to me but i see it :)

  16. Kelseesstuff says:

    I actually see the 3 soldiers and all, sort of the woman, but you know what’s clearer and what I saw first? It’s the image of a mans face ( coincidently in an army slouch hat) in the right hand top corner of the Plaque, it’s almost a reflection….. Do you see? Much more believable than the random but cool weathering patterns

  17. Jen says:

    Sorry can’t see anything but a grave.

  18. Gemma says:

    I can’t see a thing :( where is it ??:S

  19. June-Kisha Cocker says:

    I have experienced some spooky ghostly beings-cold hands on your arm-chilling air blowing around your neck-whisperings in your ear. I was always hoping for a handsom Cavalier from years gone by to give me a kiss but it never happened. For the record-I did see the soldiers and the pretty girl. I told you ghosts do exist!

    • samantha says:

  20. Millie says:
