Default Do you believe in....

ghosts and spirits? I have for a while, and from time to time I would catch a few interesting things on camera. But today....my girlfriend and I went to St. Augustine just to kill some time. We went to the old Spanish fort cuz it looked interesting. So I immediately started snapping some pics because I know there is alot of activity in this area. The following are the pics I took.

This is Karen standing in the gunpowder room, which was also used as a prison room in the later years. Bones were discovered here some time ago, which lends an eerie kind of feel to it all. See the 2 orbs? The next pic was snapped not even 10 secs later, no touching of the lens or anything. Nothing appears.

This is another room that is off limits to the public, but I could still snake my camera in there and snap some pics. This also shows a few orbs. The pic following is another comparison pic to show there is nothing on the lens.

gotta run with ockhams razor here. id attribute those to imperfections in the film.

which is easier to believe? that supernatural elements were captured on film and came up as a white ball roughly the same as a light halo when a picture was taken near them, facing in their direction with a common camera, or that there was an imperfection in the film resulting in this light halo? ill go with no2.

No film to corrupt...this was all digital.

Maybe it WAS something on the lens, but keep in mind I never touched the lens even between shots. If it was something on the lens, it would show up all they time in the other pics I took.

digital, hm. in that case, its that binary code.

i would just find it hard to believe that the supernatural world would show up on a digital picture, or film of any kind. i see no reason why it should. much less appear as orbs. still using ockhams razor. something to do with the environment it was shot in, not supernatural elements appearing as an orb for some reason.

Not to hijack the thread but my uncle past away about 10years ago and a few times every year we throw a few BBQs at my aunt'* where he used to live. & one BBQ every year we always get smoky outlines of what looks like a person in our photos, just other odd things in the pictures. We like to think it'* my uncle coming by to hang with the family and watch over us. One photo from last year my dad got had what looked like a ghost siting in a chair by a picnic table.
