I'm looking for some input on this photo

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Photo was submitted to Ghoststudy.com for consideration
Submitted: July 24, 2017

About this photo...
Colin writes, When I developed the snaps I saw this strange photo and have been after an explanation of
it since. To me, it looks like a pair of ghostly legs without a body. I did think it could be someone wearing a
black top which was blended into the background but if that was the case then they would have a visible face
or head but don't. There is a strange orb like image above the legs which is far too high up to belong to the
same body or to be a head and the legs seem to fade away at the waist. Westminster Cathedral has a ghost
of a priest dressed in black which haunts the high alter, apparently, but this isn't the high alter and it isn't the
clothing of a priest. Can anyone give me an idea of what this may be? Thanks for your time.

Jim's comments...
I'll share my feelings on this photo after I hear from a few of you. I have invited Colin to follow along.
Oh, the legs seem to be crossed... which I find interesting.

Does anyone have a worthy explanation for the photo?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is the original photo, as I received it. But I reduced the size.

View of the inside of the Westminster Cathedral. The figure was
probably standing where the robed man is standing in this picture.

Possibly a person wearing a long black coat that comes down to there knees, you can see the leg bending.

Black coat with black background = invisible.

Possibly a hat or a head of blonde or gray/white hair.  To me it looks to be in the right 'spot' to be a head.

Not much detail because the quality is so poor.

I see someone walking before the altar, with their legs crossed at the ankles. I believe it's a woman because I see a hair bun.

Since we are going in the direction I was originally thinking... here's my response to Colin's email at the time... and my photo interpretation, which is similar to MasC's
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My original response to Colin: So the question comes down to a person or a supernatural being.
I’m thinking there is a chance that it’s a heavy set woman with large legs wearing a long black jacket and she has short blonde hair. But I’m certainly not ruling out a supernatural being. I will post it on the forums for an analysis, if that’s okay with you. We should have results in a few days.

And I wrote this to Colin after posting to this forum late last night
It’s 3 am in the morning and I just posted your photo on the forums. Let’s give it a day or two and see what they say. I feel like they will probably come up with the conclusion that it’s a living person. The members are very skeptical but they are also especially practical. So we’ll see what happens.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is my original interpretation sent to colin...
and it seems to be in line with what others are thinking thus far.

Colin's response to my first two emails on July 25th
Colin writes: Thanks for your replies. I too looked at Google images of the cathedral and could see nothing that could be mistaken for legs. The figure just seems to be someone walking on the aisle in front of the steps that lead up to the alter. I honestly can't remember if anyone was in front of me when I took the photo, I just remember it looked weird. Surely that round/golden ball like shape is too far above the legs to be a woman or person's head, and why is there absolutely no outline of a body against the background if it is somebody? It just looks weird.

I'm happy for you to post it on the forums, if someone can clear it up, that's great. I can at least get an answer to this little mystery.
Love the website by the way, it's a site I've followed for many years.

Yeah, you're right. She's walking toward the altar steps.

Likely someone walking up to the altar, though admittedly, when first viewing the photo I didn't see anything at all. Wasn't sure what I was supposed to be looking at until someone drew it in.

Looks like someone walking to the steps, if there was definitely no-one there that's a different story but since the OP is a little unsure I'm going to say it's a person :D
