I made this photo at Christmas and I made it at 2 different angles but this smoky funnel was in both photos.

I asked the person that developed this picture if he had ever seen anything like this and he said no.

Its not a strap because my camera doesn't have a strap.
I've read about vortex's but what is a vortex?

Well, judging from the horizontal striations, I would say that whatever it is, is moving in a left to right, or right to left direction, like a strap (I know, you don't have one, you say), a piece of string, Hair?, or something generally strandular. It looks to be held from the bottom, as it is swinging more from the top, hence the cone shape. And because it bows on each side, it is a flexable piece of strandular material.

I don't think this is a ghost or a spirit at all.

But I could be wrong.

I'm going with either something held in very close proximity to the camera while the flash went off (turns everything white in the process too), or assuming it is film and not digital since it seems to be a scan, just cheap or damaged film. I've had stuff like that happen in film pictures, although it tends to be more red or orange than white most of the time. Either way, increasing the contrast and brightness or inverting it sheds no more light on the subject.

It is a digital camera.

Looks like a camera strap.

Take a look at all these pictures of straps.

Since it can't be the camera strap which was my first idea, its probably a reflective flare from something below the camera viewer. Did you have a ring on when you took the picture? I think it was probably a reflection from a diamond ring, since it is so focused or a watch crystal or bracelet. I think it is from below the camera lens or viewfinder because it is strongest at the bottom and peters out near the top. Since it appeared only on 2 frames I would think that it was the way you were gripping the camera that allowed the reflection/refraction, once you changed your grip or moved the camera the reflection disappeared. I wouldn't expect it to happen too often, you just got lucky that day.

If it continued to happen I would suggest you have the lens of the camera checked it may have be scratched or chipped.

Best of luck and hope it never bothers you again.
