Hey All,

Wanted to get your thoughts on this picture. This was taken during my 1st deployment in 2006. Taken at FOB Hit (Forward Operating Base for those not familiar with military acronyms) by a buddy who was amazed at the construction quality of the little shed for just using hand tools. He took a pic and this is what showed up. There was no one standing there when he took the pic.

What are the chances that the file got corrupted along with another and part of another image embedded itself in this one? I don't know how because I have no other photos on the HD resembling this guy or even the pose.

The other strange thing is that this pic followed a sniper attack on the base and several Marines were injured or killed. I can neither confirm or deny this info as it was given to me by several people without knowledge of the picture.

Thoughts, opinions and theories on how this happened?

That is seriously weird!

I always had a theory that ghosts where just the earths memory of the energy. However if the attack didn't happen until after you took the photo then I have no idea im sorry!

I suppose it could be a spirit or memory imprint ... I am not really an expert on this things though ...

Interesting though ...

(oh and Wolf beat me to the memory imprint thoery while I was typing

A reflection in the glass?
I don't think it's any apparition. There also appears to be a reflection of an ipod as well.

You can easily do that with like a Cannon SLR. Put the camera for a long exposure time, wait a couple of seconds and walk in front. Easy as that

Was that originally taken on film or was it a digital image?

Am I wrong, or are there three guys superimposed over one another there? When I scroll to the right, I see what appears to be parts of three Different men.
And an Ipod!

since the Ipod is there, I tend to fall into the reflection/double exposure crowd. But your buddy is right. Nice shed.

I do not see an IPOD... I see a label on the plywood side of the guard shack or whatever it is.

That's what I thought at first, but after looking at it more, I see an iPod, with icons on it. The sign on the inside of the shed looks different.

Double exposure or long exposure.

I am ignorant of digital photo 'stuff'. Can you do a double exposure with a digital cam, or must it be photoshopped?

I too see the iPod. Can you identify any of the icons on the screen? edit: Sorry I mis-read your post. You may be thinking that what others see as an iPod is a sign on the side of the shed, with the 'ghost' superimposed over it.

Exactly.

Also, on the larger image you can clearly see two other "ghosts" on top of the soldier, leaving the impression that the pic was taken while the soldier was in motion to lean up against the wall. Not very ghostly afterall.

It could be simply a long exposure, since I don't think digitals suffer from double exposures.
It looks like it's a dark day, camera can be set, or may be set automatically by poor light conditions for a long delay, and the static objects wouldn't change, but the fellow would.
Since none of the other objects are blurred, it was probably on a tripod, and that makes me think it was set up.

In my opinion, anyway. I'm just a amateur photographer, I'm sure someone with more experience can offer up a better explanation.
