"Something Else" there....
2005-07-08 16:37:57 ET

This picture was taken in a Graveyard in Chapel Hill, NC (just outside Raleigh), which is so old it has many PRE-Civil War markers and stones. The place just generally toyed with the digital camera, but this one showed up with "Something" on it, with no explainable sources of effects, illusions, or distortion. The "force" seems to bend as if displaced by my "Aura". Felt drawn to this grave, for an unknown reason, as well...

So there are the facts. My oppinions are slow to FULLY make up, so I'm undecided at the moment. What do you guys think?

Glare from somewhere, would be my guess.

if so thats the craziest lense flare I've ever seen! nuts!!!

2005-07-08 17:59:22 ET

...I mean, it was ribbon-beings of light from the crab nebula that came down to dance on the grave because it just happened to be the sacred nesting site of their holy grouse.

how's that? :D

or a lens flare.

Everything was pitch black... the grave marker's dark and weathered stone, nothing reflective anywhere, and there was NOTHING in the line of sight of the camera/flash that could have caused a glare, especially where it showed up.

Whatever you choose to explain it is all that matters, neh?

2005-07-08 18:22:01 ET

that's the thing, i'm not sure... just sure it WASN'T something explainable by any of the KNOWN potential influences.

2005-07-08 20:19:43 ET

to rule things out.... how polished was the face of the headstone?

2005-07-09 06:19:55 ET

Dark Stone, Not Polished, VERY Weathered! Most of the inscription was worn away, being from the 1800s.

...Are you sure that the camera strap, or a piece of hair wasn't hanging down in front of the lense? I know it might be kind of a stretch, but when something like that is close enough to the lense when the flas goes off, it can make it look like an object of light. I can't tell you how many times I've seen a glowing FINGER in my pictures. -_-

There was NO strap. The photographer had SHORT hair. ...and what would make the "force" wrap around the gravestone if it was just a reflection?!?

2005-07-17 14:04:40 ET

Haaa I was distracted by the fact that you thought it might be warped by your aura, but it didn't look like the right shape for that...but it does look like a better fit to the gravestone.

I don't know...what does your gut tell you?

2005-07-17 14:09:41 ET

my gut tells me that it was something ELSE.... I even felt it before the picture was taken. In fact, that's WHY I asked for a picture to be taken there!

2005-07-17 17:23:00 ET

Then there's a pretty good chance that it was something. Have you gone back there?

2005-07-17 18:57:32 ET

No, not yet.... It's about an hour train ride away...

2005-07-18 10:21:57 ET

Oh...well just be careful in case it's not a friendly ghost! ^^'

2005-07-18 12:02:20 ET

Oooo! I'm scared.... Linda Blair might be after me!

"Your mother sucks cocks in Hell, Karras!!"

2005-07-19 09:13:35 ET

...Actually, that one was over my head.

Excorcist quote.

Ohhhh right. I saw that movie on late night TV once, but I turned it off when the little girl crabwalked down the stiars backwards and upside down. I didn't figure I wanted this on my brain when I went to bed.
