Your thoughts please ??

Post by clarkey » 02 Dec 2014 20:22

Hi Guys - would like your thoughts on this photo. It was taken in the early sixties outside my house, this is the house where I lived before I got married. The wall on the right is in front of our house and I can see 2 figures. One looks like it is leaning on the wall and the other looks like a lady with a large hat on. Don't think this is a trick of the light or shadows. Would appreciate your comments. Does help if you enlarge it.

I can see the two figures you are referring to. How interesting. You don't think it's a double exposure of some type??

The figure leaning on the wall appears normal to me.. Never heard of a spirit 'weight bearing' that is essentially for the living.. The fact someone is leaning on the wall means to me that they are either watching something or someone or talking to someone that they can see, maybe the second figure.. I have enlarged it and the second figure is more fuzzy... Will see what others make of it... Do you have the negative?

I see the two figures also. I can't control the zoom right now to have a proper look though. It's certainly interesting. I can also see what to me looks like the head and shoulders of a woman, in the bottom right of the pic, but that might just be my imagination.

It doesn't look like the characteristic double exposures of the 120 and the 110 and 35mm films.. I do not suppose you know who took the pic or the camera.. But old type roll films often had a double exposure as there were no teeth on the cog to wind the film on.. Unlike 35mm or instamatic type cameras of that time..
The Anomoly bottom right just looks like a pale oval image to me, I can't make out shoulders etc let alone determine if its a woman...
In double exposures it would affect the whole photo and you would see other anomalies overlapping and as far as I can see, I cannot find any.. Any one can lean against any wall chatting.. But the background of the wall is interesting, because you can follow the cap of the wall right thru the standing figure yet not the second figure... :?: Pity RH is off line for another week...She would be very interested in this pic...

I didn't take the photo so I carn't say what kind of camera it was taken with or by whom. It just seemed strange that you can make the wall out through the figures especially the one on the left. The photo was one of many of my home town years ago. I took a good look at it as it was in front of my old house and somebody else commented on the figures near the wall. Very interested in the wall as my granddad built it.

This house is very old, we think it was once a farm house as it had stables and a cold room with big hooks hanging from the ceiling in it till it was modernised. My granddad lived next door and owned the two houses at one time. It has a large garden at the back, backing onto a park.

My dad lived there on his own after my mum died until 1999 when he died, he never believed in ghosts or anything like that, but about two years before he died he said he saw somebody walking down the garden in very old fashioned style clothing carrying a lantern. When he went outside to see who it was it disappeared. At the time I thought he might have imagined it, but this photo got me wondering if he did actually see something.

There might be a simple explanation to this photo, but at this moment it just seems very strange and thought worthy of other peoples opinions.

Thats an interesting bit of info... The hooks hanging up and the cold room suggests that the farm butchered their own livestock... Maybe the guy with the lantern was a 'replay'...A spirit farmer coming back home after a days work..

This is a photo that was taken about 1905 just a bit further up from the other photo. I think the lady on the left is wearing clothes especially the hat similar to these. Just my opinion.

Very interesting, what strikes me about both photos are the lack of cars.... The streets today are so much busier... In the first photo I thought the road looked extreme;y icy, I suppose they didn't grit and there wasn't enought traffic to break it up like today..
