Ghost Photo: The Woman Watching

Does the photo above show a ghost? That’s what one Reddit user wants to know. The following comes from the site’s r/paranormal section. The OP writes:

“These photos were taken in 2005 with a really crapshoot digital camera. It was just my sister and her friend Tommy in the room at the time. The photos were taken within seconds of each other, the one on the left was taken with a flash, the one on the right without. In the photo on the right, you can see, CLEAR AS DAY, the face of one person and the opposite hand of another. You can even make out very round glasses on the face! No one else was with them.

Growing up in our parents’ house, we always had strange things happen. Noises, things being moved, that kind of stuff. Maybe this was the person behind all of the activity?”

What do you think of the photo? Critics say the image has been altered, others believe it shows a spirit.

Reader Submission: The Man at the Door

“My father always argued that a near death experience was the result of chemical processes in the brain.

This all happened Wednesday night, 2/15/17. I returned home after my husband had taken me out for a fancy diner the day after Valentine’s Day because it would be less busy. After we got home, he went to bed and I stayed up watching YouTube.

At 11:30 p.m., I heard someone knocking on the front door and it sounded like they might be trying to break in. I started yelling, asking who it was. It was a police officer.

I told him to hold on. I ran up and told my husband to get up and come down…’It’s the police.’

My husband talked to the officer as I hid behind the door. The officer asked for me. I came out from behind. He then said something that knocked the wind out of me. Mom couldn’t reach me by phone. Come to her house. My father’s in the hospital.

Reader Submission: The Footsteps

shadow person

“I live with my father and two nights ago I dropped him off at the airport as he was spending a month in Florida. I fell asleep at 3:30 am, very exhausted, but was ‘jarred’ awake at exactly 5:00 in the morning. I could not understand why I was awake, since I knew I was exhausted, but then I heard it: footsteps coming up my stairs. The sound was as clear as a bell.

The logical part of my mind was trying to make sense of it. I wondered if perhaps my father had returned from Florida, but I knew he would have called. The footsteps moved into the hallway and crept closer to my bedroom. As the steps drew closer and closer, I watched the handle on my bedroom door, just waiting to see it turn. I then heard whatever it was take two steps into my father’s bedroom, then nothing. I waited five minutes and then went out to investigate.

In the back of my mind, I knew I wasn’t going to find a person . Still, I opened my door and peeked into dad’s room. I didn’t see anyone. Frightened, I returned to my room, switched on the lights, and left them on for the remainder of the morning. Since that night, I’ve been awakened a few times, but I have not heard the footsteps again. I must say, nothing is more frightening than hearing footsteps coming right up to your door.”

The story behind this shadowy photo is that a group of carpenters snapped it in a basement and then refused to work there again. What do you make of the image?
