footsteps heard on the stairs*

If there one thing we can learn from a photographic capture, is that you never can be certain of what appears on the image; I thought this sort of occurence only happened on negative film, but now I realise strange phenomena can happen on digital as well.

This was not there at the time, nor can I assure did I use Photoshop etc.

Someone else on this site was there behind me when I captured this and neither of us can explain; can you!?

    I prefer this one, there’s an odd square of something in this one that makes it slightly more intriguing. You have to stare harder at this and scrutinise it more as there is nothing obvious in it at all. Genius.

  • Thank you, so do I, but wanted to put up both (for feedback)

    I was there for this pic and for the life of me i can’t remember what caused the white square on the wall at the top of the stairs, but it really draws your eye in, with the dark shadow on the left. IMPRESSIVE.

  • Spooky isn’t I couldn’t figure it out either, and it is a straight capture, no Photoshop

    Nice ghostly photo! I think that there was something special going one at this moment when this photo was made. Human eyes and ears don´t sense many things that are going on sometimes.

  • Yes something was going on

    Very interesting capture. Do you know anything about the sites history? It might be nteresting ti see if it is known as having hauntings.
