Flying The Ghostly Skies

A friend's cousin, who has long believed she is targeted by spirits, both friendly and otherwise, snapped some photos out the window of the plane she was in, I suppose at the colors of the dawn or something. She saw nothing unusual when taking the pic but here is what she had on review:


And let's zoom in on deep-in-thought dude there:


I'm sure she was glad to have a slightly apprehensive and a bit frustrated looking spirit here instead of an angry one. Although I think it is a fun picture, which is why I'm sharing it with y'all, here's what I think she has:

You know those little lights above you in the plane that you can adjust the direction of? I think whatever direction they were in caused a reflection off of a photo inside plastic in a planner or wallet type item open on the tray table or the girls lap. The reflection combined with the camera flash caused this guy to look like he was hanging out in space.

Also, it looks like he is wearing a dress-blues military style hat that has a point in front, a white dress shirt with dark tie, and dark jacket with plain epaulets. Meaning, this looks like a graduation photo for military or police training. Also, the facial expression is that of a newbie......determined but not super confident quite yet.

Anyway, just a neat pic.

Well then *ahem*

I finally remembered my password after not posting for so long. Admittedly, I've become jaded on paranormal events as, always eager to be logical before being a believer, I've learned more about what can cause "hauntings," and I'll do a post on that in the future. What hasn't changed, and I'm pretty sure won't, is how I feel about cemeteries and graveyards. The mixture of emotions and history they hold, centuries of stories they tell, will always fascinate me. Therefore, it is likely you will find me skulking around them until I find myself in one permanently. I also still have a great interest in Victorian post-mortem photography, an art lost long ago. I believe my next visit will be to a cemetery or graveyard (don't recall if there is a chapel there or not) in Moncks Corner, SC, near the Mepkin Abbey. Not the Strawberry Chapel cemetery, which I have prowled through before, but another I have seen on the way that looks quite old and interesting. The heat is quite cumbersome here, but I am going to try to get some history info on it and make a visit within the next two weeks.....stay tuned!
