Misleading Photos

We are pleased to present some of our photos that we have taken at various locations we investigated that seem to show paranormal activity. However, what you are about to see in the photos will not be of the paranormal. But there will be an explanation of what was caught on film. If you plan to take pictures at night of a place that you may be investigating, always make sure you take a pad and pen with you and mark down what lights or reflective objects that may be about, that might give a ghostly image.

With these pictures I've got so far, I hope I can help you with your own investigations into the paranormal and show how a photo could misrepresent a ghost or an ORB.

This photo was taken on June 21st,2002 at the Hamilton Cemetery office. Object #1 to the right, where you can see red spheres, they are tail lights from passing cars on York Blvd. Object #2 appears to be a fully engergized small ORB when in fact it was a reflection of the camera flash from the handicap push button. Object #3 appears to be a small orb in motion, but it is actually a small bug that wanted it's picture taken.

This photo was taken on June 21st/2002 at the RBG's forgotton garden. (A part of the RBG that has been abadoned, and no longer hosts any flowers and such.) In this shot you will see a few ORBS, but the one up in the upper right corner of the picture that seems to be at full energy is not an ORB. It is a street light from Hwy 403 that bypasses Cootes Paradise.

This picture was taken at the Hermitage on June 22nd, 2002. It almost appears that our ghost dog was saying this is not an ORB you are taking a photo of. What appears to be an orb on the building is actually a bolt from one of the main beams used to help support the wall.

In this shot you can see the blue ORB near our ghost dog. This is a real orb, but the small fully energized ORB that appears to be hovering near her neck isn't really an orb at all. It is just our ghost dog's license that reflected the camera flash back.

It appears that ghost dog had two orbs attacking her eyes or that ghost dog was becoming a ghost. No, actually it was the flash of the camera reflecting back from her eyes that caused this eerie effect.

In this photo there are some faint orbs hanging about, but the red glow you see in the background was a small camp fire someone had started before we arrived. I think we scared some folks when we got up by the ruins when we swung our flashlight back and forth through the air as we checked for bugs and such. Then with ghost dog going around the building to greet them.... It appears they did not want to make any new friends. The group all ran out of the site screaming......I felt really bad we didn't get a chance to introduce ourselves.....*S*

In this photo it appears that something is starting to form down on the ground by the camp fire. Upon further investigation we discovered it was an empty chip bag. We felt better for the folks running out of the site earlier after this discovery for we knew at least they all had time to eat the potatoe chips before our arrival.......

This photo shows what appears to be a very bright vortex to the right. However, what you see is nothing of the paranormal. What I have done is purposely put the camera strap in front of the lens of the camera and clicked a picture. This was extremely hard to do as the strap on my camera is very short. So after pulling on the strap to get it in front of the camera, I could only manage to get it to one side of the lens to get this photo.....





It's a ghostly bird, it's a small ghostly plane. Nope it's a moth we captured in flight to who knows where... If a bug gets close to the camera lens when you are taking a picture at night, it can appear as a fully energized spirit of some sort.

Oh noooo it's a bunch of different colored orbs having a gathering to the right of the picture. Nope, it was the sprinkler system just kicking in. I should know. When I took this picture late at night I got wet really quick and needless to say it cut into my picture taking......

It's an un-natural glow with colored orbs all in a line making their presence known. Nice try, but no cigar. It's really the flash from the camera reflected from the marble that caused this eerie effect. It is what is known as a reflection flash and it created what appears to be orbs all in a line. Also right under the flash it appears to be a red orb but this was created by the flash of the camera as well. In this picture there was no paranormal activity.

Is that a purple orb on the bridge???? No this spot was created by the sun known as a solar spot. It gives the appearance of an orb . This picture was taken around 2:30pm in the afternoon.





This picture, we believe is a dust particle blown down from the railway bridge above. It looks like an orb floating in the air, but notice there is no transparency. Also the color of the particle is brown......

In this photo taken of a house it appears there is an orb to the right of the second floor window. What it actually turned out to be is an external PA speaker attached to the side of the house.





In this photo, it appears to be a vortex of orbs. But this photo really shows one what fog looks like with all the moisture in the air.





In this shot it looks like a bunch of mini orbs in motion. This is what snow looks like when caught on film.





In this camera shot it appears as ecto mist. But really it is a shot of cigarette smoke. Notice that there is no energy to it.





In this photo it looks like a fully energized huge orb, but in reality it is a shot of a flash light beam hitting the ground.





AHHHH!!!! Something out of the norm in this photo.....Nope its just a very bad night for bugs.
