Especially when there's photographic "evidence" of ghosts or monsters.
Isn't it funny though that the evidence is always blurry, or the spectre is seen from a distance?
Aren't there any vain ghosts?
So I loved this story:
A property manager got a fright when a ghostly figure turned up in a photo she had taken.
Brigid Curran used her cellphone to take some pictures of a rural Helensville property she oversees, and it was not until she returned to her office that Brigid saw what appeared to be the figure of a woman standing in the background by the fence.
"I thought, hang on. There was no one standing there when I took the photo," she says.The evidence is this photo:
Brigid sent the photo to the tenant, Janet Stansfield, who replied saying she was unfazed.
"Oh that’s just my Maori lady, she likes my garden," she told Brigid.
What, you were expecting something more shocking? Maybe a pair of glowing eyes peering from a white sheet? Or a ghastly gruesome face to make your blood chill?
The person/thing is blurry and indistinct. It certainly has the shape of a person's upper body. So is it:
- a live person who just happened to be peering over the fence at the time?
- some kind of joke/stunt by someone desperate for attention?
- something else on the fence that just happens to resemble a person?
- a spectre from the pits of hell come to suck our souls away?
Feel free to speculate. Aliens? Nazis?
