Warrior Ghost or Gone in a Flash?

Warrior Ghost or Gone in a Flash? BigSeance.com

 

Every now and then I receive photos from readers or listeners. Often they come with a subject line like “What do you make of this?” I’ve never claimed to be an expert when it comes to analyzing possible paranormal evidence in a photograph. I don’t even bring it up much. And honestly, when I was out investigating, the photographs were always kind of an after thought. I used photos more for documentation of the surroundings, and never really thought about them as a way to capture evidence. As you probably know, my focus was always on audio.

Like many others in the paranormal field, the photos we often get sent to us involve “orbs”, which most of the time end up being quite obviously explainable. And just as often, it’s an awkward offended reaction that I get when I respond with my usual answer. People want SO BADLY for things to be a ghost… even after someone gives them 30 possible explanations for what they’re seeing. I’m not sure why some folks ask if they don’t want an honest response. And so some of these photos end up sitting in my inbox, or maybe I reply with something harmless like… “Cool photo!”

But this photo was different. I am NOT making a claim that this is paranormal. But isn’t it interesting? You don’t see one like this often. Here’s the information I have from the photo that was sent in by Sarah. I was given permission to share it with you. Sarah writes:

“I wanted to send you this photo and get your opinion.  I just [took] this picture of my daughter’s basketball team in our grade school gym.  There were children running around behind the team prior to me taking the picture but I sat and waited for them to leave before I snapped the pic.  If you look behind the chair of the last girl you can see that the white figure continues down behind her chair.  Please let me know what you think of the photo.
Thank you so much!”

 

What do YOU think? 

My mind immediately saw what looks like a solid foot or shoe planted on the ground behind the chair. If this were a child running behind the players in the photo, the foot would have been somewhat stationary, at least for the moment the picture was taken. But even then, seeing a solid foot doesn’t mean it isn’t paranormal. It’s definitely something to think about though. 

I also think that if Sarah admits to knowing children had been running around the team prior to the photo, could it be she captured one of them and she just doesn’t remember? That’s probably the most logical explanation. But… even then, I wouldn’t expect such a ghostly, unrecognizable flash of white from a camera in this day and age… even if the kid was super fast! But I could be very wrong. Thankfully, when I mentioned my question about a possible kid running behind the players, Sarah wasn’t offended. She responded very politely with the following: 

“I will tell you that when I took the picture I was not looking at the screen, I was actually looking over my camera to make sure all the children had ran past. I steadied the camera on my knees and watched above it. I actually have a sequence of pictures, one with the kids running past then the one with the figure that I sent you and then one with no one but the team. They are time stamped about 8 seconds apart.”

 

Surely we have some photographers or experienced investigators out there willing to weigh in with their thoughts or explanations. Is this a Warrior ghost?

And thank you for the photo, Sarah!

Ghost in the Window…

The Ghost in the Window

Could this be the spirit of Frances Grimshaw in the window right before this home was demolished?

I think this is a pretty impressive photo, and as long as witnesses are truthful it just may be a really phenomenal example of a spirit caught on film. The following information is from the original article. See more of my thoughts at the end of the post.

“David Grimshaw was certain it was his mother Frances, who died at 87 last year, after being shown the snap taken by a man demolishing the building.” 


“The 59-year-old was stunned and added: ‘I’m totally convinced – no one else looks like that. She had glasses and big earrings and she used to wear a dress with a bow at the front.’”


“While some may think the ghost is just a mere reflection, Mr Grimshaw remained convinced. He said: ‘She used to stand in that room for hours on the phone – it was the guesthouse reception and she took bookings from there.'”


“‘She would have been horrified if she had known the house was being  demolished because it was beautiful, so maybe that is why she’s turned up.’”


“The demolition team had felt an eerie chill at Meadowbank House. Worker Stuart Shan said: ‘The day before we took the photo, I noticed the chandelier swinging on its own.’”


“And demolition supervisor Robert Johnson, who took the photo, added: ‘It wasn’t until I got home and showed my wife that we spotted the woman.'” 


“‘You can see the jewellery on her and everything,’ he said. ‘I’ve never seen anything like this before – the image is so clear. I’ve always been a sceptic but I’ll have to believe in ghosts now.’” 


“The building in Kendal, Cumbria, has now been demolished to make room for a new commercial property.”

The only question that I have about this photo is one that I get really annoyed when people ask in situations like this… but someone has to. Why exactly was this photo taken? The woman seems to be perfectly centered in the photo. Was it cropped after the fact? Was it coincidence? Were there other photos taken? If it is typical for photos to be taken before a structure is demolished it makes the evidence a little more believable to me.
Photos like this will probably never truly be empirical evidence in the eyes of science, but I hope it’s real. What do you think?
