This is a photo that my aunt took of her son in the seat of her car and it was taken in the lot of a flea market. The thing in the background is just unexplainable. It has the perfect shape of a man, and is white-ish and almost kind of see through. When she took this picture, there was noone there and even if there had been that wouldn't explain the ghostliness of the person. It looks kind of like an older man, wearing a hat and his back facing the camera. This is one of the clearest photos of a ghost I've ever seen.. What do you all think? http://www.flickr.co...04/10506090685/

It does look a bit ghostly... but I would have to say it seems to be an older man (living) with a baseball cap wearing light colored clothes .

i dont believe it is a ghost. as jim says, it is an old man in light clothing and a baseball cap. the sun shining on him (as well as the floor) gives him that "bleached" look.

No offense, but no it doesn't have to be a ghost. Likely isn't. I agree with the above posters, old man in light clothes and cap.
Who you gonna call?

I don't know.
It looks as a old man that walks in the street behind the child. He has a cap and wears some light clothes. But If no person was present when the photo was taken, the figure would be very mysterious.

A famous photo is "The Solway Firth Spaceman". The photo was taken in 1964 by Jim Templeton.

I agree with those who have said that this is not a ghost, this is simply an old man who happened to be walking past the car when she snapped the photo.  You can very obviously see flesh-tone on his cheeks, he just happens to be wearing light colored clothing that looks faded-out because of sun glare.  Nothing at all paranormal about it.

Something about the figure creeps me out...  I just feel weird when I look at this photo.  Does anybody else have a weird feeling when they look at it?

At the flea market, seriously, what are the chances of "no one was there" vs "we just didn't notice the old guy when we snapped the photo."

It's not like you are miles from anywhere with only the people you brought with you...   in the woods, or at a remote house.
It's the flea market, other people are going to be around.

I've got to agree, the odds of no one being in the background of a shot at a flea market is unlikely. If I'm seeing what I think you are pointing out, he looks like a fleshy. The man looks just like a man wearing light colored clothing (possibly even matching the brick behind him).

Sorry but there isn't enough proof that this could be paranormal.

It does look odd, but I would have to agree with the others. It is quite possible that your sister just didn't notice the man there when she snapped the picture. Speaking for myself, I rarely look at the surrounding areas of pictures I take. She was probably just so intent on capturing a very fun moment with an adorable subject, she failed to notice the man coming into the frame.

It really is so easy to not notice something unwanted getting in your image. It's happened to me many, many times.
