This was originally taken from my blog:
Ok before we get to the picture, I'll give you a little back ground. The picture was taken at an abandoned T.B. hospital. What happened is that we
ran a story in the paper about Patti Starr doing aghost investigation in it.
Patti Star is the President and owner of Ghost Chasers International, Inc., which is based in Lexington, Kentucky. She leads an experienced,
accomplished, group of investigators with a goal to prove that life goes on even after death.
After hearing that Patti's group got some good EVPs (Electronic Voice Phenomena). I asked and was granted permission from the city to go into the
hospital as well.
We did get some recordings of children talking and playing, but the tape accidentally got erased.
If you want to hear the EVPs that Patti Starr's group got then go to this website:
Now on to the picture.
Yesterday I was looking back through some of the pictures I took, (I took the pictures in October 2002) and I happened to notice what looked like a
man standing in the next room of one of the pictures I took.
It could be a lighting trick, or anything... like I said I am not sure what it is. I do know that it looks like a man watching us. I have zoomed in
and marked the area in purple.
If you look close you can see his eyes, eyebrows, nose, hair, mustache, collar and shirt. I haven't altered the photo in any way, except to zoom in
and to circle where he is standing and crop so that the picture wouldn't be huge.
Like I said it could just be a trick that the light played, but it sure is weird.
P.S. on a side note you could deffinately feel a presence of something or someone there. I am hoping to get a chance to go through it again sometime,
with more equipment.
Well here is the picture, you can judge for yourself.
I would love to hear your comments on this. If you would like to have me send you the original, (Not zoomed or cropped) then just send me an u2u.

Here are the comments it has so far:
I'd like to see a copy of the original, if you don't mind. I'm not sure if you can U2U the image (don't have much experience) otherwise you can
email it to me.(Removed your email address) I have several months experience ghost hunting, but I'm not an expert. I will be glad to offer my
opinions and observations. Thank you.

I believe you do have a spirit in the photo. Unfortunately, I am not getting much from it, but I think he may have been an orderly in the hospital. He
missed the kids when he died and came back to watch over them. All I am really getting.

That is very cool K_OS! You really can see alot of details on the picture, like you pointed out. It really looks like you have got something there,
although I am sure a skeptic would just say it is a coincidence, like seeing a face in the clouds. You should post this in the paranormal forum, I
dont think alot of people read these blogs. You could get more opinions that way.

Since I was asked I have posted it here.
Now I know that some of you won't see what I am talking about when I give the details (ie. hair nose, etc.) So below here is a VERSION THAT I
DO NOT GO BY THIS VERSION... IT IS ONLY TO HELP YOU IDENTIFY THE ORIGINAL, I HAVE CHANGED THE CONTRAST AND ALTERED THE BRIGHTNESS.
Well there you have it, let me know what you think.
