A very strange event occurred today which led me to share this photo and it's story,which I will get to in a moment.
First, I would like to share with you the Burwash Ghost.
Back in 2005, a few friends and myself decided to go investigate the old abandoned Burwash Prison (Burwash Industrial Farm's Camp Bison), cause that's
what Sudbury boys do for fun!
The township of Burwash is no more, and the prison is one of the only remaining examples.
It's about a 30 minute treck from the outskirts.
The prison was open from about 1916 to the early 1970s. Here is a link to a brief history on the Burwash prison and township,
As we ventured through the prison, I friend of mine, who I will refer to as D.L., was snapping away on his digital camera. He took photos of almost
every room. When we were looking through the photos shortly after, we discovered one photo with a very peculiar guest...one we have sinced named the
Burwash Ghost! (Pictured here in the bottom left)
See the figure in the bottom left!?
There was about 3 inches of water in the room, it looks like a reflection in the water of a figure huddled in the corner! Could this be an authentic
The detail in unmistakeable and a little frightening. lol
The features are very distinct, it resembles a man crouched in the corner with his arms draped over his knees.
I know some people will say, it's the reflection of my friend D.L. but I just don't think that's the cause of this figure. We were all standing behind
the person with the camera. None of our reflections would have appeared like that in the opposite corner.
This is the closest thing to a ghost that we have come across as evidence of sorts, and it's still a mystery to this day.
Now, on to the recent event which led to me posting this picture.
I have recently met a new friend through work with many similar interests. Today, I decided to head over to his place for the first time to hang out.
We started to shoot the # about various subjects (lots of ATS matter) and somehow ended up on ghosts.
"Have you ever seen a ghost" my friend asked.
"Not that I can remember, I think when I was very young I might have..." I replied.
My friend got really excited and said "You have to check out this ghost picture I have from Burwash Prison..."
I stopped him in his tracks, "Whoa, hold on a sec! I have a Burwash story too! Let me go first then we will compare."
Now, I have no idea what compelled me to cut him off and go first, but I did. I proceeded to tell him about our adventure.
"...so we got to this room where the water was about ankle deep." My friends eyes got very wide and he starred at me very excitedly..."Go on" he said.
So, I continued on, "...and there was a huddled figure in the corner of the picture.", my friend jumped out of his seat in shock, disbelief and
excitement all at once.
At first, I couldn't even make out what he was saying because he was so excited, all the while clicking away on his computer...clicking away until he
pulled up the exact photo, our photo! So now it was my turn to jump up and yell in excitement and disbelief! lol
After a few minutes of nothing but yelling and shock and awe, we finally put the pieces of this very odd puzzle together.
Apparently, after we left the prison that day, my friend D.L. (the photographer) decided to take his exciting find down to the local Source
(electronic store) and show it off to the boys. He struts right in to the video department claiming he has a ghost and want to check it out on the big
screens and what not.
Well, it turns out, the kid working in that department at the time was none other than my newly met friend from work! He has kept the picture ever
since! He said it blew his mind so he e-mailed it to himself from work and always shows it to people when on the subject of ghost.
Like what are the chances!?!?! lol
My brain is still just rattled from the experience! How's that for synchronicity!
Needless to say, it's all we have been talking about this evening.
Well there you have it. I am very anxious to see what fellow ATS members think of the photo. I hope you enjoy!
