Thank you so much for sharing your pictures. I admire people who are willing to share their paranormal photos and open themselves up to scrutiny.
That isn't an easy thing to do, but it allows for discussion that couldn't otherwise happen. So kudos, and thank you.
I do indeed see the orbs in question. When looking at pictures like this, I don't know how to tell the difference between dust and a spirit orb or
energy or something else entirely. I will try to look even closer when I have more time, but for now I can only confirm that I do see the orbs in
I think the most compelling part of your story is the circumstances. That you only see these orbs at family gatherings and/or the holidays. The
further support this idea, I would suggest that the next time you have visitors over who are NOT family and it is NOT a holiday, snap some pictures.
See what you get. If it is dust kicked up from having more people around, you'd expect to see some orbs. If, however, it is indeed spirit energy
attached to family members that like to show up on special occasions, you would not see them.
Orbs are tough to debunk, because even running the above "experiment" is full of problems. If you did capture an orb when other non-family was
over, would that debunk the pictures you have already posted? No... because alleged spirit orbs look so much like dust... anyone who takes pictures
on a regular basis will sometimes capture random "orbs" of dust/moisture/bugs.
Like I said, though, I think the most compelling aspect to your pictures and your story is the timing and consistency. Keep track of these orbs,
keep a log if you have the time. Note everytime you capture an orb - whether you believe it to be paranormal or not - and describe the circumstances
of the photo. That will give you a better view if there is truly a pattern as solid as you believe, or if maybe you are only watching for and noting
the orbs that show up when you have come to expect them to show up. KWIM?
Thanks again for sharing, I hope someone with more experience with orbs can comment further on your pictures.
