This photo showed up at least 15 years ago on the web.

I have the summary from the husband who took the photo... but I don't remember any of the details.
Does anyone remember the story? Eventually I'll find my notes and post them here.  :)

What do you think of this photo from the past?

Do you see the face in the body of the ghost?

I just remembered, I published the photo in my book in 2009 - Ghosts Caught on Film 2
It's on page 16 if you have the book.

Creepy yes, but I think that's a reflection of his leg and shoe. Lol.

To me it looks like a reflection from the window on other side of the car, you can see both the adult and the baby looking towards something on the other side of the car. The refection looks like someone who put a sheet over their head and was pretending to be a ghost.

The dad leaned into the car to take a pic of his son. So I would think if there was a reflection, it would be of him holding a camera.

So..this might sounds stupid, but it just occurred to me.....Is it possible that it's a dirty window combined with reflection and pareidolia? I only ask because I happened across photos of my own, not even remotely paranormal, taken in a car with bird droppings and dirt and whatnot that creates a similar shape. If that were the case with this photo and there were say, bird droppings on the window and then we add the layer of Dad's reflection when he took the photos....when zoomed in you can see all kinds of things. Just throwing out another possibility.

It's a blanket and stuff from inside the car reflecting in the far window. If you've ever put something light colored onto your dashboard, you know what I am talking about

It looks like someone in one of those decontamination suits with a gas mask - and just underneath I see a face looking up towards us, without you having to mirror it Jim!

I see half the face... and that's just as creepy!

To me it looks like the reflection of a man (the dad) with a piece of cloth on his head. Just like this picture.

I am not so sure there seems to be more than one strange thing in the image and I think the cloth is all over the figures, not just their heads

I see three obvious figures. And if you study the picture closely, there appear to be a few more. I thought maybe ponchos... but there is absolutely no sign of rain what-so-ever. There would be at least moisture on the window if not water streaming down. So no rain and the sky looks bright.

Folks have been going back and forth with this photo for almost 20 years and I have never read anything, IMO, that truly explains away a paranormal event in this snapshot.

You might have a point Jim but, using the premise "Folks have been going back and forth with this photo for almost 20 years and I have never read anything, IMO, that truly explains away a paranormal event in this snapshot." could also be rephrased as, "Folks have been going back and forth with this photo for almost 20 years and I have never read anything, IMO, that truly explains away a natural event in this snapshot."

Pixel level graphic editing has been present since the early 1990's in Photoshop. I remember being in computer school working with PS in 1994 version 2.0. There could very well be legitimate captures out there but good detective work is required to validate and even then many shortcomings take place. Unfortunately there has has been manipulaion since the 1860's with Mumler.

It would be nice to believe what everyone tells you like "The dad just leaned in and took the picture" but it's what happened after that, which should be held suspect. Legitimate paranormal investigation follows similar lines to police work. Most of us are not qualified to perform it. We can only speculate but speculations lead to a blind man looking for a black cat in a dark room.

Yes I know that might not resonate with some people that want to believe but it's still my opinion and much like yours, it should be examined thoroughly before making a statement of authenticity.

Thanks EVP.... all good points.

And unfortunately most really good paranormal photos can't really be proven either way. Which leads us back to letting the viewers decide for themselves. And that's fine with me. It's always fun to imagine the possibilities.

I'm seeing a bunch of different figures, also.  I just wish I knew why some of the figures have horns on their heads...  I'm not liking where that is headed...
