Stranger in the Photo

19 February 2019 | Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My 3-year-old son was trying to take a picture of me. He didn’t realize the camera was backward. He took several photos within seconds of each other. I grabbed the camera back when he was done and started erasing the photos to make space. The first two images were blurry duds. But when I got to the third picture, there was a startling face behind his. I’ve never seen this person in my life and we were the only two home.

      • So far as we know – it is not them and there was no mirror….. creepy as hell. Most likely explanation beyond a ghost is that our brain is seeing something that actually isn’t there. This is something we do all the time – especially with photos.
