You have got to be kidding me. Where did the photo come from? Did you try clicking the link that is
under the photo in your quote? You don't see the link to it there in the middle row of coral castle thumbnails on the right? And underneath the
thumbs it says "click pics to enlarge"?
Regarding who is behind the website, for a researcher like you Mary, it's a piece of cake to see who the website is registered to. Beyond that I
couldn't tell you. But I'm not sure how good a researcher you are if you didn't see the link under the picture.
Also - this is just curiosity about the photo itself: What's this?
I would need to examine the negative to make a more definitive evaluation, but without doing that I can speculate
because I've seen similar defects from my own darkroom...looks like bubbles:
Film & Camera Defects
There is indeed a lot that can go wrong with photographic film. Water drops, chemicals residues or particles of dust can attach themselves to the
gelatine emulsion of a photographic film, causing specks or spots of different sizes and shapes (many photographic artifacts are due to insufficient
agitation of the developing solution). Even in the manufacturing stage, air bells and all sorts of undesired substances can create UFO-like images
when they get trapped between the emulsion layer and the film support.
So, by examining the negative, I might be able to determine if the bubbles
are actually in the emulsion itself, or if there were bubbles on the negatives while it was being processed and if insufficient agitation resulted in
bubbles sticking to the film and interfering with the processing. It's possible that some other type of film defect is present but some type of
bubbles would be my first guess.
Here's a related link with some discussion about bubbles:
