I'm hoping that someone here could possibly have an explantaion as to what the figure might be in my photo. I'm not sure what it could be but I'm 100% certain there was nobody behind me at the time the pic was taken. The photo was taken a few days ago outside the Theatre Royal in Newcastle, England. Looking back over my pics I only just noticed it.

Here's my photo. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Looks like another person who was moving at the time the picture was snapped. I don't see anything paranormal about it.

Id would have to say that you just didnt notice him when you took the photo.

They can be quite sneaky them young Geordies you know

Thanks for replying. My friend who took the picture also says there was nobody behind us but as certain as we are, we could both be wrong. It scared me a little when I first saw it.

It looks like someone turning around to look at you and Ms casey

Did you notice if anyone else was there when you walked to where the pic was taken?

It does look normal though ..

To me it looks like there was a person walking by. it looks like the realized they were in the shot so they turned and tried to run out of the way creating the effect you see in your pic. Plus the fact that you arent really that sure if there was some one behind you or not. Were there other people in the area? If so it is possible that they walked behind you with out the two of you noticing.

It is possible that someone could have been behind us, but it only took a second to take that pic and I would have seen the person. The street the pic was taken on is really quiet and there wasn't anyone else there at the time. That and my friend who took the picture told me he didn't see anyone when he was facing toward us.

I would say that it's either a blurry person passing behind, or a damned and tormented spirit reaching out from beyond the veil of death to warn of impending doom. It's a toss-up.

A camera exposes film or a target to record an image through the lens at a given rate of speed according to light conditions and film/target type.

The light around us is alowed to move through the lens at a over a given time.

This can cause bluring if the shutter speed, on the lens, is slower then the objects moving around the range field of the camera target.

The flash burns an image "moment" onto the target of the camera, but the movement in the background is captured.

Hmmm... Well I dont really know what to say then. My gut tells me that there is nothing paranormal about it, but then again I am only human, I can be wrong. Infact it is VERY possible that I am wrong and it is a ghost. It just looks to me like a typical photo with a person quickly walking into the frame than turning and running out of frame.

That is crazy. It looks and feels paranormal to me. I got a chill looking at it!

By the way, it appears to be looking at you, except half the face is gone.

Hmmm... I dont find it crazy at all.I dont know much about photography but I do know a little. I challenge anyone with a camera that allows you to adjust the shutter speed to Try this: Slow down the shutter speed( I really dont know what would be an appropriate speed) have some one stand in one spot but tell them to move around some. If done correctly you will see an effect similar to the figure in the background of the picture in question. Try it. See what happens. It should be fun.

I think it is a person. Whenever I use the auto focus on my camera the background is blurry and the foreground is clear. I get a similar effect.

Looks like maybe someone was stepping out of the shop/flat behind you,and was turning as they shut the door and walked off.

Definatly a person caught in the motionblur of taking a snap....besides, how many ghosts do you know that wear a brown leather jacket?

As for an explination as to why you possibly didnt notice a person walking behind you....

visit this link and follow the instructions carefully to observe how selective your brain can be.

Hmm.. at first I thought it looks just like someone got in the shot but.. the time stamp looks the same as on my old SE K750i camera phone. If that is the camera that was used the guy must have been moving very quickly to cause that blurring effect as i have loads of photo's with people moving around in the background and that hasn't happened.

Also, there doesn't seem to be an open doorway or anything for a person to be in that position for and if he was opening or shutting the shutter on the shop front, they would have known someone was there.

You are usually aware of people in the background if you're taking a photo, especially if there are few people around so the fact that the photographer says he didn't see anyone is a bit strange.

It says your shutter speed was 1/8 of a second in the EXIF data, which is actually a long time. So, like the general consensus here, I'm going to go with it being a person in motion.

It looks like there is a steel roll down type of door that is used for stores there. The figure in the picture is in the correct position to be unlocking the door.

slow shutter speed will cause this effect if there is any movement at all. Seems to me the kid was walking and the slow shutter speed picked up his range of movement. This will create that ghostly effect.
