The most famous ghost photos in the world

 I have never had a paranormal experience, to be honest I don't even think I could handle it. But my boyfriend had one in the eighties, a most horrific one, and his recollections on the event are so vivid, that, I must confess, this whole experience has significantly diminished my sarcasm on the topic.
I've recently run into some interesting photos of...ghosts, that have been subjected to all sorts of analysis along the years, and they still remained somehow unexplained.
The first one is the photo of the Brown Lady, and it was taken in 1936 in Raynham Hall in Norfolk, England. The ghost is supposed to belong to Dorothy Townshend, one of the former proprietaire of the house, around 1700. She was allegedly killed by her husband Charles as punishment for her infidelity.
The photo on the right was taken by the son of the woman, who was silently praying on the bench of this little church. Apparently she wasn't alone.
The photo with the girls was taken in Manilla in 2000,  by their friend. There was nobody else around
The photo on the left was taken in 1966 by a clergyman who wanted to capture the beautiful Tulip staircase from the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, England. Apparently there are more than one mysterious apparitions in the Queen House, not to mention some annoying footsteps very late at night. The photo on the right was taken in 1891 by Sybell Corbet, during Lord Combermere's funeral. The photographer had been solicited by the family to take some recordings of the house. The figure of the old man sitting in Lord Combermere's favorite chair, bore a great resemblance with the recently diseased.

Ghosts, huh? Pardon my naivete, but I'd wager that (if we could communicate with them), then barring the occasional phantom murderer they'd be pretty friendly paranormal creatures.

The way I see it, a ghost that roams around isn't out to haunt people (because really, how many chances will they get to do so?). I'm guessing that they're just out to reclaim something important to them. It would be a pretty freaky experience, and I'd probably be on my knees begging to be spared if I ever met one, but once my reason kicked in my next step would be trying to form some sort of communication system.

...Though this is coming from someone who's watched his fair share of Ghost Adventures, so take my pondering with a grain of salt.

Freaky stuff! There was a ghost who lived at the house that I grew up in. Both my mom, dad and uncle saw it. The fact that my dad saw it really freaks me out because he is definitely a mathematics, logical, reason kind of guy. I am so happy I never saw it. I only felt the gloom:( That house still haunts me to this day. Maybe the house is a ghost!

Hello Petronela:
Without any first hand experience, it tests the imagination to think of ghosts, but many people do seem very convinced of their existence. We are certainly of the view that there are many things in life beyond our understanding and so as for ghosts, well, why not?

Hey, Unikorna, I'm over here now: http://cjsullivanauthor.blogspot.com/ Same person, different name and different kind of content. Love it if you'd join me!

Robert Bourne said...

mmm almost convincing but I am still a skeptic...

Hi Petronela,

I think there might be some credibility to this. I have had some very strange occurrences happen to me when I lived in a very old house in London when I was a child.

So, who knows....

Take care, my friend.
Gary :)

At night, alone, seeing these pictures .... ahhhh my friend, you're wondering if I have insomnia!

:( snifffff....

Catherine said...

I always run and jump into bed as I am nervous as to what might be under there to grab my feet. But I'm pretty sure it's only dust bunnies under there that I have to worry about. ;)
Hope you are having a happy week!

Those pictures make me tingle! I have seen a ghost and I have had a few odd experiences - some might say I'm odd to start with ;-) x

This gave me goosebumps! I have had several paranormal experiences in my life, I am a true believer.

I just don't know. So I suppose I am balanced on the fence about it. There were certainly some interesting photos there - but ...

I am very open minded to it. I do believe there are things in this world that science can not explain.
We took a "ghost" tour at a historic site in Tasmania. Hubby swears at one point someone grabbed his arm. But there was noone close to him at the time.
And he is more of a cynic than I am

I had ghost around my house, always in black, which makes me think they were just impressions. There was a little hirl in old victorian clothes, long curly hair. I swrar I knew her dress was blue with white trim and she had strawberry blond hair. Tbe otber was a guy who matches the description of a nlack man who took his life in front of my window (his window when he lived their). He's wearing overalls. The final one i've only seen once and he appeared in the kitchen, one leg bent out, joyfully like he was making a peanut butter and jelly sandwhicn. he came with his own jars and butter kinfe. But I asked them to leave afyer watcjing The Montell show and the psychic lady said to tell them to move on and I haven't seen them since.

About a month or two ago I read up on paranormal activities through a link I found on an image on Pinterest. I fascinated by it.

I'm still a skeptic though...but I will admit, I do use it for my writing.

I do love ghosts and had some subtle experiences with them. Where I live, in Victoria, has a many ghosts. We even have a Ghost Tour where people walk around in the dark, with a tour guide, and look at all the places where ghosts are suppose to haunt. Cool!!!! Great post for Halloween!!!! BOOOOOOOO!!! tee hee

Such a spooky post and so close to Halloween. I totally believe there are Ghost that roam the earth with us. I would be scared to death if one actually contacted me. Spooky stuff.

I do believe they exists and their presence could be felt from time to time if we were less stressed in our daily life.
It is such a fascinating subject though!

Kelly said...

All of these stories of ghosts and hauntings interest me. I lived in a haunted house, until I was 21, with my parents. We heard voices, saw things move, heard my name whispered directly into my ear at night. And much more.

So yes, I believe in it very much.

Annalisa Crawford said...

My current WIP features ghostly photos, so I spent a whole afternoon a few weeks ago just looking at photos just like this. They freaked me out by the end, but it was such fascinating research!

Judith said...

A perfect post before All Hallow's Eve when the veil between worlds thins!

Diane J. Reed said...

Love this article--so fascinating! I've had a few paranormal experiences (nothing horrific--more like amusing), but then last month I took a photo of a spooky house near mine and a ghost appeared in the finished photo! It blew my mind. If you want to see it, it's on my website at www.banditsranch.com. I just find these incidences so intriguing, but a lot of the "ghost photos" I see on the web look fake. The ones you showed look real. Who knows?

I have never seen a ghost but one time my mother came home alone... put the keys on the table.. went to pick them uo, they were gone. She searched high and low for them... finally she saw them on a hook in the kitchen that she had to use a stool to obtain them... freaky...

Have a fabulous day Petronela ;-)
