While not the same field (ie UFO's rather than ghosts) its still rather interesting their similarity.
I dont know people are saying its to good or the person doesn't look like a ghost (as if thats supposed to carry any weight since who among us know
what a ghost really looks like, and how could we prove it anyhow).
I guess you can only take the photos takers word for it, give it time and im sure that if its a fake the identity and their connection to the
photographer will come to light, on the other hand who knows perhaps a long gone relative was catching up and unfortunately got 'caught'
Me im for fake "hey gran get in behind!" but i aint tossing aside the possibility its not a long departed individual.
ShiftTrio's closing paragraph above this post summed it up perfectly in my mind.
Edit:- Hmm anyone else think their related, the old womans got a face with very similar features to the kid in front of her, definitely say they are
related... maybe their one in the same ... i kid, or do I?

Regarding this photo...I am going on PURE SPECULATION HERE that
IF the photo is a true and accurate representation of the events
told, I THINK i can explain why the CAMERA saw the astronaut/alien
but the human eye did not....It has recently come to my attention that
certain new (hmm...make that OLD!) types of materials can be manufactured
to BEND or REDIRECT optical frequencies around or away
from a 3D object.
These substances, called metamaterials, are 3D stacked nano-objects
that can act as waveguides at optical and microwave freqencies
which in laymans terms, can make things INVISIBLE to both the
human eye and radar.
I going to go out on a limb here and suggest that IF the photo is real,
then the astronaut/alien was wearing a suit that was invisible to
the 400nm to 700nm wavelengths of the human eye that has the
unique property of having a problem with excessive Persistence of Vision
or in other words, the eye's shutter speed is pretty slow which would
allow a being cloaked in a metamaterial-based suit to use the 3D
nano-scale optical waveguides embedded on the suit's surface to
redirect light around or away from the suit at a specific frequency
that is compatible with human vision but still visible to fast shutter-speed
film that goes beyond capturing the limited human-scale 400 to 700 nm
visible light into the near infra-red and low ultra violet which many films
in that era of 1950-1970 would be perfectly capable of. The human eye
woudn'y see anything because the optical waveguides would overload the
human vision system with re-directed light but a FILM CAMERA,
having a fast shutter speed and wider range of chrominance & luminance
absorption ability WOULD show up the suit in a final silver-halide print!
This is speculation on my part but do peruse the websites below
or search on the web using search terms such as 3D Metamaterials,
Visual Stealth Using Metamaterials, Optical Stealth, Microwave Stealth,
and Nano-scale Optical Waveguides.
