Ghost Nuns?
I was just surfing around the internet, looking at stuff that I find interesting ....you know stuff like Bigfoot, Ghost, UFOS....ect.  I happened to run across this old picture and here is what was stated about it.

A photograph showing a group of girls sitting on a grassy mound. On the left side a group of miniature figures of nuns can be seen walking through the grass. The figures were not visible when the photograph had been taken.Photograph taken in 1961 and was given to Rosalind Heywood a Society for Psychical Research Council Member. No Copyright for the photograph exists. The photograph was later reprinted in the book Investigating The Paranormal by Tony Cornell in 2002. Author Mr. M. B

While most of us probably think this is nothing more than a double exposure, I still find it appealing. I guess it has a little to do with the fact I like old photography and then you add in the ghost element.  Plus I can't recall ever seeing this picture before.

In any case, I thought I would just play around with the photo and run it through some filters/effects. I guess I may as well share them....so here they are.

Just a slight adjustment in contrast to bring out the figures a little more.

A crop of the mysterious figures.

 I inverted the picture. The figures stand out. 

With this filter I don't think the figures look like Nuns at all. It looks more like rain coats. The figure on the far right looks more like a KKK member.

Now, what to you think about the photo? Is it a double exposure? Paper cut outs? Shadows? reflections?
Your guess is as good as mine. We do know that back in the late 1800's  and early 1900's that Spirit photography was a big deal and that a lot of pictures from that time period have been exposed as fakes. I know you guys remember the old Ectoplasm photos from back then. What was said to be "spirit energy" turned out to be nothing more the cheese cloth, material or tissue . Here is a photo to jar your memory.
Even knowing many of these old pictures where fakes, I still enjoy looking at them. It gives me a glimpse of the past and helps me realize that people were basically the same back then as they are now. The mysteries of our world keeps searching for answers.

Have a great weekend!
