You are a retard. First off, if you were going to pull this off, you should have never mentioned that you went to a local masonic/war cemetery. Immediately upon looking at this, it is obvious this is the shadow from a monument of a soldier crouched over holding onto a gun maybe, and another standing with arms crossed. Secondly, if that is a picture of you, and you are by yourself taking a picture, then why does your picture look like you are standing straight up with your arms crossed? Give me a break.

And yes, it's insulting to call your friend a "shadow person"
Not that I believe in shadow people, just get a MySpace or something to post your crap in.

I have a good friend who takes hundreds of pictures in cemeteries while by herself, so it isn't unusual for me to hear you were there alone.
I have no ideas what this shadowy figure is. No idea if it is something paranormal or perhaps easily explained (i.e. a bird or another object in the cemetery). My question is... when you say this shadow followed you, I was under an impression this shadow followed you in several pictures. Was it one image? Or more than one? Do you have pictures of the same area from a different angle that would help to identify if the shadow figure is coming from something in the cemetery?
If this was me, I'd be freaked out. But I would go back to see if anything could explain away the shadow (and cross fingers something does explain it). Good Luck! If you have other pictures with this shadow following you, it would have been great to see.

A member who's been with us for almost two years says "I was followed by a shadow person!" and offers a photograph for examination here in the Paranormal Studies forum.

Why are you taking a photo of what is essentially a bare patch of ground? That seems suspicious. Or is it cropped?

I agree with those questioning the photographer's posture. It would seem the camera is not at eye level (based on stated person's shadow) but is held to take a picture of the shadows by looking downward at a display or just point and shoot. Just seems a bit odd.

Here in Rochester we have a beautiful old cemetery that many people just love to spend hours in photographing. Both my daughter and my best friend have been taking shots there for years.
I have seen similar things in some of the photos they have taken over the years but none as pronounced as this one. I don't have a scanner so there is no way I can provide any of the images, but I have seen many anomalies in pictures around grave sights.
I also am sad to see people attacking the person that started the thread, we can look at evidence and express our opinions without being unpleasant.
