Things that go bump...


Look closely... what do you see?
More than a castle and some green hills?

This picture was taken by my dad in Scotland with a film camera about 20 years ago. He was taking a picture of Crichton Castle in the distance while standing in the graveyard of the castle's chapel, leaning over a stone wall. Much to his surprise, this is what came back from the photo shop. All the other pictures on the roll of film were fine. He had the negatives checked, no one understands why this one picture was so different from all the others. Very strange. It was a clear grey sort of day no haze or fires burning nearby. My mum was with him and was not surprised to see the odd image. They were visiting the new grave of a dear aunt and in the past, this aunt and my mom had spoken about giving each other a sign if possible. She thinks that is who is in the picture. I think it looks like a man. Who knows what it is. Interesting though.

I came across it today and as often as I see it it still gives me goosebumps:) What do you think?

I don't know what I believe, and film and the atmosphere can play tricks.. but... the bottom line really is "I don't Know".. could be what your mother believes.

Great photo!

I tend to agree with your mum. They did wear their hair up a lot back then. This is a beautiful picture with a spirit in it or not...

I am a believer in things we are not able to scientifically measure. :)

my apartment in Montreal had a 'presence', she used to open and shut my microwave at night. definitely weird, but for some reason I wasn't really scared...

that may make me seem kooky, but there ya go!

Holy cow! I had goosebumps when I finished reading the story. I still have them. I think I'll wait a bit before I turn out the lights and go to bed.
