Known as the BROWN LADY OF RAYNHAM HALL, this is a classic ghost photograph. It was taken in 1936 in Norfolk, England by two magazine photographers. One of them saw the spectre when the photo was made. This kind of image would be any ghost hunter's greatest trophy!
The Newby Phantom
This photo was taken in the early 1960s by Reverend K.F. Lord. He snapped a shot of the alter in his Church at Newby in North Yorkshire, England. Though he saw no one when the photo was made, the phantom on the right (see below) appeared in the devloped print. Its grim-reaperish quality makes it particularly chilling.
The apparition in this photo is so clear and well-defined that it's often thought to be a fake. However, photographic experts who have scrutinized the photo and negative can find no evidence of hoaxing.
Ghosts rarely materialize in a form visible to the naked eye. Cameras can catch ghostly forms our eyes cannot see, though. They have the ability to "freeze" images too fleeting or broken for our brains to recognize. If ghosts sometimes move or exist at a frequency that oscillates too quickly for our eyes to see, a camera could capture them faster than the eye. Of course, the higher the shutter speed, the better.
"Ghost" Footage Mystery Persists
