I havnt posted this account online before, and I no longer have the photo I took so I cant show the "abnormalities" in it...
It was in 1999, I was an art student at the time and I was "researching" at the state museum for an assignment from one of my classed. By
"researching", I mean I was taking photographs of some of the museum exhibits so I could draw them later. The camera I was using was an EOS 1000f,
which is a 35mm SLR.
I took a break for lunch in the museum courtyard and was approached by a guy who appeared to be in his early 30's, tall, with long hair. He came up
to me and the first thing he said was "Im an angel". My immediate thought was that this was some crazy person who was "off-meds". We had a short
conversation, no major revelations came out of it, and before he left I asked "Can I take a photo of you?" he accepted and I took a pic of this guy
giving me a thumbs-up.
I developed the film pretty quickly (within a couple of days) as I needed the other "research" pics for my assignment. All the other pics on the
roll developed no problem, they were all clear and well composed--except the picture of the guy who claimed to be an angel. His pic was slightly over
exposed, which I had never experienced with the EOS in auto mode. But in addition to being overexposed, there were two abnormalities on the print (and
on the negative); to his left (RH side of the picture), there was a ghost-like figure made from light, and to his right (LH side of the pic) was a
darkened blob or globe around head hight.
About 5 years later I met this guy again, literally bumped into him walking out a shop as he was walking in, before I noticed this was the same guy I
said "sorry" for bumping into him, his response was
"Dont worry, Im an angel!", so I said
"I know dude, we've met before"
"yeah, at the museum, hows things?"...
the conversation was fairly brief, I didnt ask him about the abnormalities on the pic, I was kinda taken off guard. I got back into my sisters car and
she asked "who was that?"
"thats that angel dude, ya know the one from the photo" I said as I had shown my sister the pic years before when I had it developed.
Thats my angel story, I really wish I still had the pic and the negative so I can hear peoples opinions on how the abnormality's were created. The
one on the RH side, the light one could be possibly replicated I believe with double exposing the neg, but I can not explain the dark globe on the LH
side of the pic.
BTW: Photoshop 5.5 was the current version at the time and yes I did have a copy
