In Honor of Halloween: MY OWN Ghost Photo!

Okay, I must preface this with a confession: if you look at my list of DVR'd TV shows, they are almost all about ghosts, aliens, the unexplained, mysteries, and true crime... with episodes of Breaking Amish thrown in. I have always been fascinated with the unexplained and believe that there are a lot of things out there that we don't yet understand/have an explanation for.

That being said, at the beginning of this past summer, I took a trip to a beautiful little place in eastern Ohio called the Dawes Arboratum, and blogged about it HERE. I took hundreds of pictures, some of which were still sitting untouched in Adobe Lightroom a couple weeks ago, when I decided to return to them. There is this oooooold cemetery in the arboratum that I of course stopped to take pictures in, since I have a weird thing for cemeteries. None of the pictures really did it for me though, so they sat in the "untouched" pile. When I revisited them recently, something jumped out at me in this photo:

Click on it, blow it up, and tell me if you see anything weird going on up in there. If not, maybe take a peek at this one, zoomed in a bit:

See it yet? Here it is, even closer still...

Is it just me or do those look like strange white/gray legs in the middle of a whole slew of NOTHING BUT GREEN???

If I have completely lost my mind and you were not seeing what I was thinking I was seeing, I did a little circling action for you. It looks like legs right?? Long skinny legs? I swear I can see knees, two of them. If it was something on the lens, why is it clearly behind those trees? Here is another look:

I don't know. I'm not saying that I think it's a ghost, but I'm saying that it's not something on my lens and that it's super weird/creepy/scary/bizarre/I'M NEVER GOING TO THAT CEMETERY ALONE AGAIN.

What do you think? Ghost? Camera malfunction? Sasquatch? Random white tree branches? 

Happy Halloween :)


  1. I saw it RIGHT AWAY!! However, I'm the librarian that talks to our resident library spirits, so.... maybe I'm biased! LOL I did see the legs right away though.

    You NEVER know!

    1. Carmen we must be kindred spirits!! I feel like I am biased too, since I have an innate fascination with this kind of thing. Your blog is pretty awesome; I added it to my reading list :) And I live by the "you never know" idea!!! :)
