The "Brown Lady" photo is priceless, and if you do some looking into the matter, you'll find that this photo had a profound influence on how movie
directors handled the lighting and overall mood of horror film scenes for quite some time. It's an amazing shot, and even if it's a fake, its a
I'm pretty sure that full apparitions are extremely rare, and that it takes a lot more talent than most passed people have to produce one. The
composition must feature physical elements, and the "spirit" must gather and manipulate these elements into a crafted visual manifestation that a
camera can actually translate, and that's simply an extraordinary requirement.
Most "intelligent" apparitions are produced within the mind of the observer, and are triggered by the "spirit" manipulating the brain circuitry to
produce a seemingly external projection based on memory that is then fed into the short term memory of the person experiencing the apparition. The
truth is that it's never actually "seen" by the eyes. Like a hallucination, but not generated by the brain spontaneously. Kind of like how
researchers can trigger full-spectrum memories by hitting sections of the brain with small electrical impulses. These events are still paranormal, but
much more targeted than legends would have us believe.
Of course, the kind of manifestations that are seen by many people (usually residual "hanuting" apparitions) are something that remains tough to
understand, but residual information has its own unique capacity for organized sophistication (like the human brain's development, for instance), so
gathering a visual representation together by way of the stuff lying around (water vapor, dust, and whatever) isn't likely beyond its range. Of
course, explaining why something like that would occur is another issue entirely. In those cases, why is probably tougher to explain than how.
I love those photos though. And to anyone that thinks that the older photos were photoshopped....
c'mon. Those photos were famous before computers showed up. Anything can be faked, but when some of those photos emerged as important evidence, the
only ways to fake such shots were really easy to detect. Not everything is bullsh*t. Most is, but not everything.
