Is has a little bit the same shape as the light. I'm not really superstitious but it is a strange blur....

I was working the tunnels at Amhurst year before last on Halloween night. Iwas walking back through a tunnel on my own and felt a tug at the cape I was wearing. It was very purposeful and made me stop and swing round. I thought that it was one of the other tour guides but noone was there. It was a wide part of the tunnel and there were no props or other items to snag the cape on. I have no doubt that it was a spirit trying to attract my attention.
However, your light, mmmmm, what were you actually taking a photo of in the first place??

Miranda is right, it's just lens flare from the light.

My interest lies in proving that ghosts do exist by removing all normal reasons for a potentially paranormal event. After investigating all possible normal reasons for an anomolous event, if the event is still unexplained then there is a possibility that it is paranormal in origin.

Ah, but you have just assumed this has a normal explaination without an investigation....

Explaining phenomena such as this involves some knowledge, some guesswork, and some experimentation. One of the things I've always enjoyed about paranormal investigating is that there is often no definitively correct answer, only a probability one way or another.

Someone wishing to answer an "Is this a ghost?" type question has to examine the evidence presented and use their knowledge of the natural world and how it works, to eliminate the probable, natural causes.

Assuming that an anomoly has a natural cause should be the default starting point. That's not to say you would immediately exclude non-naturalistic causes altogether, just that they are statistically less likely.

With this picture, you know as well as I do that lenses have internal reflections and suffer from "ghosting" and lens flare, which, in all likelyhood, is what this is.

For further proof of the suggestion that this is the cause, Sam would need to replicate the event as near as is practically possible. That is, take some photos using the same equipment as used in this photo, and of a subject as close to the original as possible, and in similar conditions. So a rectangular outside light on a dark night might do the trick. Then compare the results of the experiment with the original anomolous image to see if there is any similarity.

Cheers,
Shaun

The human subconcious must play a part: if you really want to see somthing, you often will - as demonstrated in many experiements.
