Shadow People

 

Shadow People – Hat Man This is creepy. You can see through the shadow behind the woman. “This photo was taken the day of these three ladies mother’s funeral. There in the picture is a dark figure of a man standing behind the middle woman resting his right hand on her right shoulder

Coincidentally the woman was killed in a car accident not long after this picture was taken.”

Joe Robbins says, “I took this picture with my cell phone. My friend and I had started a small bonfire and we were playing around a bit while taking a few pictures. In this particular photo we noticed a human like figure leaning out from behind me. To us it looks like some type of creature that is miserable and sad. What gives us the chills is that my friend and I were alone.”

He adds, “There was no one else there that could have been in the picture with me. Maybe the underworld thought we were”   Credit: Pinterest

Photograph, taken in 1925 of a girl visiting the grave of her twin sister who died in a house fire the year before. Parents of the girl saw her, on many occasions, talking to her sister like she was playing in her room, but no one was there, and they thought it was just part of the grieving process.

  • Hate to burst your bubble, but everyone of these is photoshop. I do photo manipulation for a living and I can do better than this in my sleep. They’re not even “good” photo-nips.

    • Hate to burst your bubble, but you are wrong! The 3rd the last image is not Photoshop, in fact it was taken in the early 1960s in England before personal computers or Photoshop was even invented! It is one of the few ghost images that can NOT be proven as a fake & if I remember right the Kodak Co. examined the photo & stated that it was NOT a double exposure or any other known camera trickery!

      • Someone’s never watched scream. thats a superimposed image from a film onto an older photo.

      • Yes I have seen that stupid movie. Sorry DrolandCorp but it’s the other way around! This image was taken long before that crappy movie was even thought of!

      • If they can superimpose Lee Harvey Oswald’s face onto the famous rifle/newspaper photograph, the technology was available.

      • It’s the “Newby Specter”, classic 60s photo and clearly a simple double exposure. Same as the so-called “Bohemian Grove” picture here. These are some dumb captions.

      • http://www.shorpy.com/node/7159

        Hey Confederate, what’s that? Oh it’s the old picture you said absolutely wasn’t Photoshop, except in this version, there’s no naked man swan diving out of the Christmas tree. Why? Because this is the photo before it was Photoshoped.

        Welcome to the internet, try researching before you post next time.

      • http://s219.photobucket.com/user/oraclephotos/media/bebe.jpg.html

        Here’s the original for number 7 shadow man also.

      • I’d rather look at these real illustrations of reptilian aliens….
        http://www.blue-planet-project.com/

      • Erm.. The Observer? He wasn’t talking about that one. Learn how to read before you get all uppity. He was talking about the one that looks like it has a disfigured nun off to the right. You know, the one that is “Third from the bottom”? So yeah, don’t be an ass, k thnx. :idea:

    • MFPS

      These are typical Fakes. Even the older images can be faked. In fact, there have been very early fakes even as far back as the early 1900′s and maybe earlier. Photo shop is a modern tool, but there are and were techniques to do this with film ages ago. I have been doing this for years and have seen thousands of photo’s and analyzed just as many. I consider myself quite good at it, and I can tell you with confidence that real apparition photos are extremely rare and don’t look like these.

    • actually the 4,5,7 are real be they dust or other explainable situations they are real. The picture of the ‘scream’ is actually the apparition of a monk in a cathedral or church.

  • Lol, the one of Slenderman. Really? You think THAT is real?

    • I never said it was real moron I said it was one of the few ghost photos that could not be proven as fake! :roll:

      • Of course it can be proven fake….. Slenderman is a fictional character…..
        And half of these are from Creepypasta, which is a website for fictional stories.

      • No Shanhelm photo #8 is one of the few so-called ghost photos that cannot be proven as a fake. The film used was Kodak & Kodak examined the image & the negative & has stated that it was NOT tampered with or is it a double exposure.

      • Paul Gilbert

        Confederate how do you keep your cool with all the Idiots about, you make honest commet and the idiots come and shoot you down ,but then again that is the Human race
        but a lot of it is pear pressure people are to scared to say what they want without being attacked so they look on boards like this and see lots of arrows pointing down and join the attack without putting there brain in Gear

        so enjoy your day :)

        :mrgreen:

      • Ugh. Listen, you internet noob, Slenderman is a meme spawned from the site Something Awful, and all related pictures are illustrative photo manipulations from such website. The photo is fake, because it depicts Slenderman, who is a fictional creepypasta. I notice you seem to have some far fetched stories about how each photo you have chosen is real, but I’m pretty sure all you have done is plucked random pictures from the internet that you decided looked too real to be fake. I notice a complete lack of any supporting evidence from any of the photos.

    • My thoughts…

  • Well they are creepy. Chills. I have photos like that when I used to use film.

  • midwestgrandma

    Wouldn’t go into the Bohemian Groves if ya all offered me a billion dollars. The stuff that goes on there is literally rituals opening the gates of hell wider and wider.

    As “time” progresses and we grow closer to the end times, we will all begin to be able to see the entities that frequent the other dimensions — and some of them are not benevolent.

    Laugh at a foolish old woman today but wait a few more years.

    Heck, look, really look into the eyes of the mass shooters – you can see the evil that has taken up residence within them.

    Scientists now even admit there are other dimensions – and hell is one of em.

    Pray up and get right with God children cause time is running out.

    • I so agree with you! I’m definitely not laughing at you…you are wise!!!!

    • Satan’s synagogues litter the earth. Do you trust what Jesus says about Pharisees? That they are men of Satan, condemned to Hell. Pharisee Nicodemus, he didn’t believe. Read John 3:12, he did not believe the Lord. Now what you think of an altar founded by men of Satan, would be you bow before an altar established by men of Satan? Such altars exist in all churches being that Pharisee Paul the false apostle and anti-Christ is a Pharisee (Acts 23:6).

      So either you say Jesus is lying and Pharisees can be of God by believing the Bible is all the word of God; or you can believe Jesus and conclude that the Bible is a mix of writings that are of God and writings that are not of God (the 21 writings of Pharisees in the NT section of all four bibles, Orthodox, Catholic, Protestant and Ethiopian). Churches are haunted, Catholics are haunted, other denominations. Satan’s territory is the churches they are all founded on Pharisee doctrine.

    • “Heck, look, really look into the eyes of the mass shooters – you can see the evil that has taken up residence within them.”

      What you see in the eyes is a psychotropic drug stare, supplied by big pharma.

      “As “time” progresses and we grow closer to the end times, we will all begin to be able to see the entities that frequent the other dimensions — and some of them are not benevolent.”

      Time is an illusion, we are present in the moment, an infinite moment that changes with each thought. Vibration and frequency is all there is.

        There is a widespread plot to take down the United States and the Psychiatric Profession is deep into it. These Shooters are almost all from one Sexual Orientation and one Religious Group and both teach Victimization History as a Hunting License.

        Add powerful Drugs and a Handler and that’s it.

        Loved the way the Santa Barbara Kid, who was Gay in his Manifesto, wanted to pin it all on “Virgins”.

        “If we could just get rid of Religion and Guns and Mormons and Virgins we could all be happy” – LOL…

  • Mostly photoshops with a couple being obvious double exposures.

  • Midwestgrandma

    Yes you are correct. You know many things people take for granted. Truely wise!

  • To Arthur. Yup the perfect batch of photocopies from the internet were 99% of its Faked and Thought up. but on the other hand shadow people do exist to some of the majority of people that do claim to see them is only clarifyed by Docters as only witnessing the shadow people in the corner of there eyes?. i mean even animals see the entities sometimes right??. peace predictability.

  • As someone who has seen what I call a “shadow monster” (didn’t look like a man, more like a serpent), I have to call out almost all these photos.

    Any of them could be fake, and just because you cant “prove” they are fake, doesn’t make them real. Most look like mediocre photoshops, and a few of them are confirmed on the internet to be fake because they were uploaded to the internet TO be fake, you know you can google search images right? And find the source pretty easy? Look up “Slender Man” on Wiki, then cross refernece “Something Awful” posts, to see some of your “unable to be proven fake” images show up as entries in a contest.

    Just sayin.

  • Carson

    Third one down looks kinda like Oprah

  • Last summer when i was angry on my son, i saw a shadow slipping away in the corner of my eye.
    First i taught it was imagnination but my son saw it too.
    I beliefe they exist and are negative things.
    I was angry on my son with out a good reason. Think the dark shadow make me angry.
    Now i know to be carful when i feel negative because is it the real me or is it ‘steered’ by something?

    • My brother talks about the “shadowman”. A name his children made up before these articles came out. About 20 years ago, his kids would say the shadowman came back. they would play games in the furnished basement, but they put up a blanket in the doorway to block the washroom area because they would see a shadow walking back and forth and it scared them so they blocked off the area from view. to this day, they are older and married and still talk about the shadowman in the washroom. It’s creepy when they tell you. The look in their eyes tells it all when discuss it! When I was a boy I would wake up at night to scratching sounds on the ceiling and walls in my bedroom. I would yell for my dad and tell him, He would say “it’s just the tree branches blowing in the wind against the house”. I believed him and it never bothered me. Then one day I was raking leaves and noticed none of the trees were remotely close enough to rub against the house. It was thenI understand about other dimensions and spooks. Right to this day our cats run around our house chasing “nothing” and looking up at the walls and ceiling!

      • Neo

        Did you consider mice? Seriously

      • My cats do the same thing…..I was watching one of them last night hide under the coffee table and jump out at nothing! She would stop a moment then run back under….and a few minutes she would jump out again at the same spot….. my youngest daughter hates being in the house by herself, and she never needed a night light to sleep until we moved there 6 months ago…..

  • There was actually a book with a lot of these same photos. Yep. Creepy.
    Theory is that part of the ability of the camera seeing what the eye can not, has to do with light spectrum. Our eyes now have a very very narrowed field of visible light spectrum we can see in. In fact it has been pointed out by veterinarians, that even a mole can see better! While the camera, depending on the influx of light spectrum given off by the sun at that time, can pick up those other fields. Indoors or out, Light bulb or sun, it depends on what wave length of light is given off.
    Very cool post. Thanks.

  • Seven, Five Headed Snakes In India, HONDURAS ALL Fake
    :mrgreen:

  • There are dimensions who FEED OFF our FEARS and OCCULT practices. Then again it can be real or trickery

  • The fourth image down was used in the something awful competition that created the urban legend of Slender Man. This is common knowledge, or should be…
    While it’s true that Photoshop did not exist when some of these images were originally taken there is a long history of photo manipulation to create “ghosts” the Christmas one reminds me of one of those that were popular during the beginning of the spiritualist movement. There are various groups on Flickr that have images such as this that were created using a variety of developing manipulation or splicing multiple images together when processing. They are quite interesting, I suggest looking into them if you like that kind of thing.
    Sorry though, but the addition of the Slender Man image as well as one from creepypasta somewhat leads to the BS factor on this one for me.

  • Meow! O.o

  • These are Really Inexplicable And Creepy Photographs.

  • Check out memento mori photographs, now they are creepy

  • Some of these pictures are double exposure and they seem to be accidental. The “Christmas ghost” it is the same little girl looking at a different angle

  • Great photo’s. Thank you for sharing!!!

  • The seventh photo with the black guy, thats just an ornament in his hallway surely?

  • spectra10101

    Hahaha… my arse. Spooky though anyway. For the uninitiated the older photos where double exposures and dark room manipulated. I have been doing photography all my life and made shots like this all the time. The only difference between these and the ones I did is I never tried to pass mine off as real. That said the one by the campfire is clearly a smoke trail. But like I said still creepy and by the way I actually believe in ghosts and have had personal encounters as well.

  • There is a new book trilogy for teens that just came out call Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, and they actually have vintage photos, originals, nothing to alter them, speckled through the book…..the one of the little girl looking at two little girls is in the first book…..but the pictures in there are pretty cool…..and I do believe that there are a lot of things in this world we will never understand, and are amazing…..those of you that are neigh sayers, just move along, there is nothing you want to see here…because you can’t handle the truth…..

    • Neo

      Don’t let the neigh sayers nag you. You can lead a horse to water… :-)

  • packmule

    This is for JacksReport, If this is truly what you do for a living and you know for sure that all of these photos have been Photoshopped or doctored in some way. Then take two Photos and point out exactly what we are looking for to prove that.I mean you can do this in your sleep so you should have no trouble pointing out what makes it fake and how it is done.

  • packmule

    The grove is an Evil place and they do not let just anyone in,You must have some clout and be a member and gone through a ritual that all members participate in.There are heads of state that are members.If you would like to know more look for a documentary by Alex or Alec Jones also look for the George Noory show and pull up Bohemian Grove.some of the stuff will sicken you.

  • Ghosts do not exist. What you call ghosts are Satan’s demons. They are the one third of the angels who sided with Satan in opposition to God, and who were cast out of heaven with Satan, to the Earth. Since we have no immortal soul, there can be NO ghosts. Study the Scriptures, it’s all in there and is all very plainly explained.

  • Are these real?

  • HAHA! One of these pictures (slenderman) was actually part of a competition on foto manipulation. :evil: so silly

  • Two of those images are original old victorian pics and thats the “scream” like monster by the altar (unexplainable) and the last one which could very easily be a double exposure. So all but one very easily faked and the one thats the thing by the altar is just wierd and not necessarily a spirit or ghost.

  • Double exposure almost all

  • We are living in the Last Days. To find out what’s coming and
    how to prepare for it go to http://www.itshisstory.com

  • Hair / smoke / bird / Slenderman photoshop / film damage / double exposure / weird home decoration / classic 1960s double exposure / photoshop / double exposure. Hope this helps.

  • While i believe in shadow beings, everyone of these is a fake. Some via photoshop, others via double exposure tricks back in the day.

  • Almost all those pictures are simply double exposures…when an old camera accidentally took a photo on an already exposed piece of film.

  • We are living in the Last Days and all hell is about to break loose very soon.
    To find out what’s coming and how to prepare for it go to http://www.ItsHisStory.com
    And then tell others.

  • The reflection of the ghost girl makes me smile, neither reflection is of the actual girl. In the reflection, they both have their arms out front, the little girl doesn’t.

  • ahahaah…. now the ghost is surrounding us, but as published is the Photoshop i think so what you think …yes you can think yourself the truth ghost ….

  • The fact that Slenderman is included in these pics makes me doubt the veracity of all of them. Most, if not all of these pics are faked in some way.

  • http://s219.photobucket.com/user/oraclephotos/media/bebe.jpg.html

    Here’s the original for number 7 shadow man also.

  • I especially like the one with the black dude and the shadow pigmy behind him. Looks more like home decor than an omen

  • Well they are spooks

  • Ok guys, I actually have a degree in photography and I utilize several different photo editing programs including photoshop because it’s my job to make people look their best; at times unrealistically so. A couple of the older ones are simple dark room tricks, and some are just older pics someone photoshopped. For everyone’s benefit here it is much easier to convincingly add whatever you want to an old, black and white, grainy photo, or blurry cellphone photo. It’s even easier to make a clear photo look like a blurry cellphone photo! I’m sorry but every one of these is hilariously amateur fake. On occasion I find something extra, that I didn’t put in a photo, in one of the thousands of photos I take and it scares the hell out of me; but I don’t ever expect anyone to believe it’s real because of what I do.
