    I recollect spending a long time in Cyprus looking for property to buy.
    We went to a place called Molos in Limassol overlooking the by.

    There was a three feet high 'break wall' which was there to protect the building including rock in the sea to stop the waves coming in.

    It was late in the evening and the night air was a good 25 degrees.

    I recollect standing on the wall and using a tripod to allow my camera to take a time exposure of the bay looking toward Larnaka.

    I remember every second nearly as I stood behind my camera which was about 2 ft wide.

    When I had the slide film developed by Kodak, this was what I found...a figure standing in front of my camera.

    [​IMG]

    I sent the picture off to The Fortean Picture Library care of Janet Borg who had the picture examined by experts and wanted to allow publishing.

    It became one of the most classic ghost pictures in the world and was featured on prime American TV at least twice.

    Had also appeared in most of the ghost encyclopedias and famous magazines.

    In order to have it published, I had to go part copyright with the Fortean Picture Library.

    I am a researcher and did not wish to make any money from this. Instead, I jut wanted to hare with the world my experiences.
    The last thing that I wanted was for people to be saying that the picture is a fake and that I did it for the money.

    So I refused to accept any loyalties.

    Unfortunately this was the condition in the contract and I had to receive payment by which I gave it all to charity.

    They found out my address and I began getting lots of begging letters, so I stopped sending out money.

    This picture made me a few thousand pounds in a few years. Production has now slowed down but it had become one of the classic ghost pictures of all time.

    I tried explaining that this iss not a ghost, but my spirit guide, but they did not seem to care only that it made money!

    There are at least another 30 or so magazines that I have by which I cannot show them all

    The head appears dark. The figure has a long bib flowing downward from what appears to be a polo neck?

    The distinguishing points that showed it's authenticity were the shadows and the fact it was a very hot evening making it very difficult to wear a polo neck!

    The problem here is that you will have a job convincing people that they are not dust particles. Also moisture will cause this.

    To me it looks like two figures with the larger one holding a smaller one. But that could just be pareidolia.

    You are shooting a brightly lite strip at night so there is a possibility of lens flare. But the lights and light angles don't look right to create that shape or create it where it is.

    It does actually!

    With it being a slide, the light intensity shows up differently.
    When increasing the amount of light towards the head, it i weird.

    I will try and find some pictures as it appears like a helmet.

    This helmet is from the video game series Halo.

    You are not that far off...according to my opinion....

    I have nine bedrooms to search (11 altogether) We moved to Nuthall a short time ago and I still have pictures or rather copies in cupboards and drawers all packed..lol

    I will try and look for a better exposed head section.

    From my point of view......there is something incorrect for it to be a ghost.

    1) It is too big
    2) Had not moved by the time the car had got nearer.
    3) Why don't the person slow down the video instead of these abrupt stops? Its suddenly switches off. Why not freeze the last frame so we can take a good look at it? It is almost as if the author wants to hide something? It looks like a lamp post radiating light from the top? Much too high for a person.

    (the incident build up music don't help either)

    Picture here was taken by my uncle whilst visiting Canterbury Cathedral about twenty five years ago.

    The blue figure seems to be gliding through the open door with it's head through to the other side?

    Right leg seems to be missing?

    My uncle saw nothing!
    Folks say that it was just smoke from two candles. There wasn't any!

    What makes this genuine for me, is the fabric draping over the right hip as the figure is gliding across.

    It appears to be a kind of 1800s tail coat ?

    Whilst I was a member of SPRING (Strange Phenomena Research Investigation Group) I came across this one taken in York. It shows a cavalier .

    [​IMG]
    A lady gave me thsi photograph after she laid a reef for her mother at Wilford Hill Cemetery.
    Seems pretty normal.....except for the next one taken a few seconds later.

    Hello Toroid,

    I started looking for the head part of the ghost on the wall, but so far could not find it.

    Did however find a painting that I did many years ago of what can be seen as the head.

    It is very similar to your description.

    I will keep looking

    [​IMG]

    Also this is an image that was passed on to me of a nurse who thinks she had a ghost behind her?

    [​IMG]

    My impression is that it could be cigarette smoke?

    In the top circle you can see a face and a side view of another creature in the bottom.

    That is what I can see Toroid.
    In actual fact, the entity which you have circled looks like a knight in armour. (profile)

    Folks tell me it is just cigarette smoke and they appear that way.

    I dunno.

    If there is some kind of doubt (according to my opinion) this is always going to be put to task.

    Just my thoughts

    The bottom one looks like a troll. Now, the top one looks like a moose with large antlers.

    Could This Be My Dead Polish Grandfather?

    Here is a picture of my Polish grandfather (my father's side) taken in Poland around the 1940s

    [​IMG]

    I had never met my grandfather and this is the only picture that I have of him.

    During a seance, this is one of the entities that came through.
    The camera has infra-red and is able to pick up the sensitive etheric covering in the dark.

    [​IMG]
    The face features are almost identical as I would believe that this is how my grandfather would have looked twenty odd years earlier?

    [​IMG]

    I have zoomed into the above image. Julie is looking on and cannot see this change, although caught on camera

    These entities 'envelope' me fast.

    [​IMG]
    This is about three seconds later? You can see my torso had not changed a bit....but my face had altered as I now have more hair and a beard.

    There is a resemblance to my great uncle

    What about this in the top left corner? It is an even clearer face.

    The Black Friar of Wollaton Nottingham

    It was 31st January 1965 as I recall and we were playing in a field on a road called Lambourn Drive in Wollaton Nottingham.

    We were having a game of 'Hide and Seek' by which it was my turn to shut my eyes and to guess where my brother and his friend were hiding in that field?

    There was not much to hide as the field consisted of long grass a fence at the back and perhaps one or two dead trees?

    I would say the approx dimensions of the field was about 100 sq ft of equal square dimensions?

    I was seated on my bicycle at the time on the pavement (sidewalk) and burred my head in my hands as I counted up to 50 slowly.
    Then I looked up to scan the field to see for any movement that would indicate where either my brother or his friend were hiding.

    Seated on my bicycle saddle, I would rock idle pausing to think.

    As I looked across I saw what I believed to be a man in a duffel coat walking to one end of the field and then walking back again..right at the back near the far fence.

    I stood there watching, wondering why he was walking back and forth as I thought:- "Weirdo"

    I started to feel uneasy because the figure was acting suspiciously.

    The other strange thing, was that it got dark almost immediately after I lifted my eyes to start scanning the field.
    There was silence, as even the traffic had stopped and the birds had stopped singing.

    Continuing to watch, the figure again turned and walked back as if deep in thought?

    Then things began to confuse me. The figure was in fact wearing a robe and was quite tall as it it suddenly seemed to notice me watching.
    It drifted across to me diagonally as I could see the folds in the long sleeves draped down and a rope as a belt.
    The hood was strange, not like monks in films or pictures, but almost box shaped and big drooped over the face.

    As I stared at the figure, the was one part of me that said 'normal' and the other part of me that said 'not normal'

    Just cannot explain how these conflicting thoughts enter your brain whilst all the time you are trying to rationalise thinking that you are mistaken as it was not a monk.

    It drifted nearer and it's feet was just smoke.
    I seemed to freeze on the spot with fear but suddenly turned my bike around and peddled as fast as I could back home.

    My brother and his friend had already returned and were laughing. They certainly did not believe a word I had said.

    Was it a ghost? 100% yes! It was as solid as a person in black and very tall.

    This is the report I placed in the local newspaper:-

    [​IMG]

    The date is wrong in the paper...only a day out as I have this recorded in my diary.

    [​IMG]

    There you are.....no one can say that I made up this story!

    Footprints Began to Form

    I cannot remember which came first....that ghost or the footprint in my bedroom?

    [​IMG]

    This is my story:-

    In my bedroom at Wollaton, there is lino fitted as a floor covering. Carpets were a luxury in those days.

    Whilst getting dressed in the mornings, I would notice a strange mottled footprint at the corner of my lower bed.
    The print was almost a matt finish depicting the toe areas and sometimes the heel.

    At times they looked like giant paw prints.

    Yer...of course...you think of a logical explanation and then you shrug your shoulders having found nothing!

    You begin to notice that they appear every three days and take sometimes a month to completely disappear .
    Although similar in size to a normal footprint, it would appear as if someone had come out of the bath?

    Trouble was...that there was always ONE. (okay joke over)

    I would go to bed, and make a special note if a print was there?

    When I awoke and steadily walked to the end of my bed...it would be there!

    Worse still it would sometimes appear UNDER the bed! Always at the same spot.

    One day I sat in front of my electric fire in my bedroom looking at some fireworks I had purchased. Seated on my bum with my legs stretched out, I happened to look towards my right, and a footprint had just formed. (different area) but this time it was soaking wet! I was able to put my hand in it and look at the water. (it did shake me up a bit , because there was no doubt that it was supernatural)

    I watched the footprint for a good half hour as the water evaporated leaving just a mottled print as before.

    It was years later I began to find the cause (to continue)

    I see what you mean Toroid.

    In actual fact it looks like a bull with horns

    [​IMG]

    But could that just be our minds playing tricks?

    Now that you mentioned it...I can see the similarity but I would have never guessed it
