A mysterious photo from my past
Posted May 29, 2011on:
I took a moment today to go back through an old photo hosting account online that I hadn’t used in a while when I stumbled upon a series of photos that were taken years ago during a ‘paranormal investigation’ at a Wiltshire location. In the photo is the shadow of a person that we could not find a source for.
I have posted the photos below with descriptions under each. Click each photo for a bigger version and please feel free to share your thoughts in the comments, it’s an interesting one that bugged me for ages when it was taken.
The photo was taken by Karen, a team member who was sitting on the lower level with Gareth (pictured). In the background Sharon, myself and ‘person 3’ can be seen standing on the slightly higher level outside of the area in which the others were seated. I am sitting on the bench leaning slightly forwards and to the left, Sharon is stood at the other end of the bench and ‘person 3’ is stood next to me at the right of the bench.
There were only three of us by the bench, this is known for sure as Karen noticed the oddity seconds after taking the photo and called over to us while we were still by the bench. There was no fourth person there. What we cannot explain is what the fourth ‘figure’ is caused by and how. It looks to be a mirror image of me as I sit on the bench but we couldn’t work out how that could be caused.
I’ve annotated the picture below to identify the who, what, where etc.
A indicates the curve of the flooring that surrounds the lower area in which Karen and Gareth were seated.
B indicated the difference in floor levels and C indicated where the floor that the bench is sitting on starts.
The ‘First Choice’ shop window is plain panes of glass with hanging displays, none of which had anything on them that looked like a person, or the shape labelled as ‘?’
Please let me know what you think.
