Yet, the subject doesn't even begin to describe this event. I have only posted one other thing, to my memory, in the paranormal board. Tonight,
however, my whole world was rocked.
First, some background. My uncle recently lost his father, and there was no will denoting who would get the things
, just the money. After he
passed, my aunt, his wife, went through the house photographing EVERYTHING incase the house was broken into or there was a fire. There were some very
valuable things in there.
Sure enough, someone stole it all. It turns out is was my uncle's sister, she stole everything of value. There was one picture, however, that had
been understoon since the day my uncle was born, that would be his. His grandfather decided this, and his father agreed. It was a picture of his
grandfather on a cart being led by a horse. It was the first thing his grandfather had ever bought by earning his own money, and he had to be about 15
in the photo.That was his, everyone in the family knew that, it had been willed to him by his grandfather that it go to Lou (my uncle) after his dad
Well, his sister didn't steal the photo, she just took the frame. When my uncle found out his sister had cleaned out the house, all he cared about
was the photo. He asked my aunt, who had called him when she went there, to just make sure the photo was there, he didn't care about anything else
that was gone.
My aunt took pictures of everything that was still there, including the photo.
Now, today, I get home, and they were talking about the original photo. I had no idea about what was going on between my uncle and his sister, I've
learned all this tonight. The original picture of the photo, while it was in the frame, had the most incredible thing I've ever seen. It had an image
in the center that looks exactly like his grandfather in his later years, standing there. But the image was just a kind of a light blue tint
overlaping the actual photo, you could make all the details of the original photo clearly.
I got home, was shown this picture, and immediately started to analyze it. It was really strange, and I've never experienced this before, but the
image inspired an emotion. Even though he wasn't clear, it was a feeling that he was protecting something. He was there acting as a guardian. It was
a stronger emotion then a picture has ever inspired in me. I was studying it for about an hour, when I asked if there was another picture of the same
photo. My aunt said there was, She found it, and I started comparing the two, looking for the same image in the other. After doing this, I handed it
back to my aunt, who went to sit by my mom and they, too were comparing the two pictures.
Then they noticed it. The picture she took of this precious (sp?) photo after the frame was removed was a fake. His sister had stolen the picture,
too. The cropping was different, it had been cut to fit a different frame, and it looked to be a smaller version which had been blown up, because it
was grainy. There was also a scar at the top of the photo as though it had been glued to a frame. Lou's father always
professionally done, and framers never
Now the really freaky, creepy part of this is that had that image not shown up on the picture she took with a digital camera, she never would have
studied it as much as she did, and never would have known that this psycho stole the original photo.
I'm getting the CD with the original photo from her to copy, because I told her I could give it to a friend to analyze it and see if it was a hoax or
superimposed other picture done at Walgreen's, or whatnot (you guys
)When I get it I will either post it here, or I will give an email
address to email me so I can email it to you if it's too large a file. Or if someone has a server where they'd upload it if I emailed it, that would
be even better.
I'm really interested in hearing your take. I don't really follow the paranormal, and I don't know if this kind of thing ever happens or not. I
know I'll find out here, so that's why, as soon as she left, I came to my computer and posted this. This is totally wild...
