A Wedding Day Ghost Photo



NOTE: the photo was submitted to Paranormal.About.com. The commentary from the owner of the photo and a reader feedback is interesting. What do you think? ...Lon

This is a photo of my aunt's wedding day. The year was 1942, and the photo was taken with a box camera. On some of my feedback I'm told it's not really there! Well, I know it is. This picture has been passed down. Please give me some feedback. I would like too see what everyone thinks. It was taken in Jasper, Alabama. -- Liz


It's an interesting photo. We have three possibilities:

1. It's an extraordinary case of pareidolia -- an illusion.
2. It's a hoax -- a very clever and well-executed one -- created with image editing software.
3. It's a genuine ghost.

I'm not ready to say it's a genuine ghost. And I think it's too detailed to be pareidolia. So I suspect -- and Liz, forgive me if I'm wrong -- that this is a manipulated photo. And my main reason for saying that is that the "ghost" is just too scary looking, like something out of a horror movie. It's just too theatrical. Your opinion? -- S.W.

Liz responds:

I thank you for your feedback on the wedding day photo, but I do not agree. These pictures were taken before I was born -- that's a long time ago. And when I saw the photos they have never changed. There is a lot about this picture no one can explain, and I think it's something paranormal. -- Liz
