Your avatar is really creepy but I like it is it from a movie?? It looks terribly familiar. -nat
The theory states that Paul Bartz bears a resemblance to the ghost boy and is wearing a similar shirt. Meanwhile, the ghostly glow that radiates from the eyes would be due to the infrared film.
Mine is of one of the first "ghost" photos that truly scared me. I remember in middle school our library had the complete collection of the Time Life books: Mysteries of the Unknown. (Side note: I would really like to get my hands on the complete collection for myself) One of the books had an article about the Amityville house and this was one of the photos of the investigation involving the Warrens.
The first time that picture was shown was on the Merv Griffin show back in 1979. It was discovered 3 years after it was taken. Gene Campbell, who was a professional photographer, was brought into the house in 1976 when the Warrens went in with their team. He set up an automatic camera on the 2nd floor landing that shot off infrared, with black and white film throughout the night. There are literally rolls of film with nothing on them. There's only one picture of the little boy. It is believed to be the youngest DeFeo boy who was murdered in the house.
Whether you believe it or not, this still ranks as one of the creepiest photos for me and increased my interest in all things paranormal.
At first I couldn't focus and I didn't know which screens I should look at..then I wanted the film to slow down so I could see the types of landscape changes...but oh well. It was still neat anyway. I ended up really looking between the 1953 and 1983...my eyes of course would venture over to 2013. So that was interesting and neat.
