Graduation party anomalies (1)
These pics were taken about 2 pm at my high school grad party on 5/30/77. It had rained briefly about an hour before, which may be part of the explanation for the blue electricity effects, along with the highly-charged emotional states of many of the relatives there. In the raised glass photo, I see the following: several little people standing on the stovetop waving (left/center of one pic); a woman who seems to be standing on the stove/counter looking over her shoulder and down at me--she is wearing a black full-length dress and feathered black fancy hat, late- 1800s style; a black dog with pointy ears and beady white pinprick eyes on the counter to the right of me (I'm in white tee & shorts).. .In the photo where I am handing a drink to someone, there seems to be two kinds of smoke on the stove behind me. At the end of the rays of blue electricity going past my hips, there is rays of smoke that I thought was thin cigarette smoke, but I might have been wrong..Recently, I noticed there are several pale images of hands under the guy's hand on the right, reaching for the glass. The person's hand also looks like it has 5 fingers AND a thumb. There was LOTS of smoking going on, which is what I attributed the thick white smoke to be on the stovetop, but look at all the weird faces in the smoke, including out the window panes, and even coming out of the can of pop or beer on the table. With all the smoke, the black space anywhere behind me seems even more significant.. .The stovetop behind me used to be a doorway to the bathroom, and this spot was particularly scary from the other side of the wall, while looking in the mirror in the bathroom. In 1967, at this same cabinet behind my head, blue electricity shot out from just INSIDE the cabinet and touched my hand as I reached for the cupboard door to get a cereal bowl. By the way, there was no metal knob or pull handle on the cabinet door to explain it away as static electricity, either. So, that is two episodes of this event, but no one mentioned seeing the electricity when the pics were snapped, just right after they were developed. . .These two photos were taken with an "instamatic" camera --- you watch the photo develop after it shoots out of the camera. They were so dark, it was hard to see any detail, except for the blue electricity. After I finally scanned the pics into my computer and put them into an envelope to send out for further evaluation, they disappeared from my desktop, and I have never found the originals. The ONLY changes I made to the scanned images were lightening the images, and I rescanned a printed image trying to see if the spooky faces that appeared in the printed photo would show up on the computer better, but that did not help. . .Maybe some people will believe these oddities are the result of a poor camera developing very poor quality images. But, I can't reason away the same kind of electrical effects happening twice in the same area, or the 1800s clothing style (the house was built in 1883, and the first owner, a young woman who's parents built the house for her, died after living there a few months). The faces, dog and little people might be explained away as matrixing -- our eyes looking for logical patterns or faces, but I find it strange that all the faces I've found are upright and facing toward the camera. . .I give my permission to copy these photos in order to examine them in detail, but do not share publish either photo on any other website or printed material of any kind without first notifying me to obtain specific permission. . .I look forward to reading commenta and consider skeptical explanations, but spare me the "photoshopped" type of comments, please.
