This happened in September of 2009, in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia. I was there on vacation with my sister, my Nana, and my papaw.
We were buying our tickets for the day when I noticed a flier for the Tavern Ghost walk. My Nana asked if I wanted to go to it and I said yes. My sister didn’t want to go so my papaw and my sister went back to a hotel. My Nana and I stayed. We walked to the meeting place, in front of Shields Tavern. Our tour guide led us to different places along the street. There was this story of a girl who got run over by a carriage and died on that street we were walking on. The tour guide was carrying a little lantern with a candle inside it, and she asked me to carry it. I said yes, and walked beside her. My Nana was about nine feet behind us and decided that this was a good time to take a picture of me holding the lantern. She took out her iphone and snapped a picture.
When we got to our next location, which was off to the side of the road, my Nana showed me the picture, and it looked nothing like me holding a lantern. The photo actually came out looking like a black mist, that took over most of the picture. You couldn’t see me in the picture, but you could see the candlelight, which was blurred across the screen. There is nothing to debunk this. It was not a thumb in the way of the lens because it would turn out reddish. Someone did not walk in front of the camera, (besides a ghost) otherwise you could see them, not this black mist, and the candle wouldn’t be blurred along the picture.
My Nana showed the picture to the tour guide and she said that this has happened many times before, and that we were not the first. My Nana showed the picture to the other members on the tour and they were surprised. The picture cannot be explained. I wish I could post it but I don’t know how.
Anyway, remember, we were walking on the street that the girl got run over by a carriage and died on. I figured out that later, my Nana was standing in the exact same spot the girl died on. I think the ghost girl walked in front of the camera. what do you think?
