    In the paranormal community at large, Very often Ghosts are given the back seat to UFOs or other Cryptozoological encounters. Which is odd, Because when it comes to the paranormal, The one kind of Encounter that we possess the most photographic evidence for are Ghost sightings. And why not? since the dawn of Civilization, Since time immemorial We humans have seen beings that we are somehow certain are our departed loved ones, Reaching out to us from beyond Time and Space.

    It is a desire we have to know the unknowable, To once again speak to those whom we have lost,
    What's amazing is, There are so many photos of Ghosts that have never been Debunked, Under the most intense scrutiny for decades and no one has been able to prove these photos disingenuous.

    Without Further Adu, I present to you,



    The mysterious and perfectly composed photograph of the brown Lady of Raynham Hall is arguably the most famous and well-regarded ghost photo ever taken. The image was shot on September 1936 by photographers documenting 17th-century Raynham Hall in Norfolk, England, for Country Life magazine. One account states that photographer Captain Hubert Provand had his head buried in the focusing cloth (a feature common on cameras at the time) when his assistant Indre Shira glimpsed a veiled form gliding down the house’s grand oak staircase and excitedly demanded that he take a picture. By the time Provand raised his head, the figure had vanished, leading Provand to suggest that Shira had imagined the incident. The development process, however, revealed something unsettling.

    The ghost, thought to be that of Lady Dorothy Townshend, has been glimpsed several times since the early 1800s. Although Lady Townshend officially died of smallpox in 1726, more lurid legends later sprung up, including that she was locked in her bedroom by her husband for committing adultery. Witnesses describe the phantom as having an air of madness or menace about it. The specter has reportedly been seen intermittently about the hall since the photo was taken.



    As with many ghost photographs, the famous Tulip Staircase Ghost photo was taken by someone who had no idea they had captured anything unusual until the image was developed. Rev. Ralph Hardy, a retired clergyman from British Columbia, was visiting the Queen’s House at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, England, in 1966 when he snapped a picture of an interesting spiral staircase, known as the Tulip Staircase. Hardy returned home, had his pictures developed, and was showing them off when a friend asked who was on the staircase. Surprised, Hardy said that he had no idea and that there had been no one when he took the picture. The image has been examined by experts, including some from Kodak, who has confirmed that it has not been tampered with. The identity of the ghost, if that’s indeed what it is, remains unclear, though some have speculated that it's a maid who supposedly died on the stairs 300 years ago.

    The Mysterious Case of Freddie Jackson,


    Some people, whether alive or dead, hate to miss a photo op. Freddie Jackson, a mechanic in the Royal Air Force during World War I, was killed by an airplane propeller around 1919. On the day of Jackson’s funeral, a group photo was taken of his squadron, which had served aboard the HMS Daedalus. Jackson, so the story goes, did not want to be left out of the photo, even after death, and his face can be glimpsed behind the fourth airman from the left in the back row. The photo was not made public until 1975 when it was revealed by retired RAF officer Victor Goddard, who had been in Jackson’s squadron.

    I get it you know, It's Ghosts and Photos can even in those times be so easily hoaxed, But consider if you will, The Ghost story, Is possibly the oldest and most original paranormal story ever told, As long as there have been people, There have been persistent ghost stories, I am willing to wager each of us know at least five people who claim to have seen a ghost, Multiply that against all of human civilization, That many people can't be making a story up as a complete fabrication, People have been screaming Ghost since the dawn of time, I feel that no paranormal researcher worth his salt, Can Debunk the Massive Beast that Is Ghost sightings as a subject of paranormal study. It's not just Worth a look There are literally stories about ghost sightings going back to the very beginning of creation, That's a lot to debunk, And An Insane amount of testimony to just overlook. Dontcha think?

    Love this stuff.

    With the group photo a mistaken date could explain a lot. A double exposure might explain the stairway photo, but I don't know anything about cameras.

    Flying objects are damned hard to photograph when you're caught unawares. Not impossible though. I have made the argument that smartphones make crappy cameras for UFOs and it's demonstrably true. But for personal, bad breath range pictures of human figures they excel. So you'd think with the profusion of cheap ubiquitous HD camera tech all over the place we'd have some better ghost photography to show for it. Considering YouTube I guess we do but that seems to a venue for crude hoaxes more than anything else.
