Strange Phenomena, Ghosts and Anomalies
Some of the research carried out for The Mdina Touch sparked an
interest with friends of mine. Lee took a series of photographs
of an obelisk monument in Sefton Park, Liverpool. The photographs
were taken purely on the spur of the moment. On the day the photographs
were taken there was some ground mist and Lee thought this would
create a bit of atmosphere. Six months later he had the film developed.
I happened to be present when he collected the prints. Out of what
I thought was a sun-flare materialised a ghostly image of a face.
I am certain that this is not a double exposure. I have posted
the sequence of photographs here for that reason - you can see for
yourself. Take a careful look at the closeup image, it isn't difficult
to imagine the other shapes slightly lower and to the right of the
"face" are hands or arms folded as if in repose.
If you thought those photographs were spooky then this is even
spookier. Another friend, Wayne (who is invaluable in helping me
with my research) was traveling to Edinburgh on a family holiday
and offered to take some photographs of Rosslyn Chapel. When his
photographs were developed, imagine my astonishment to see another
ghostly face. This time the photograph is of the Caithness Memorial.
The burial place of George Sinclair IVth Earl of Caithness.
I have no explanation for these photographs. They were taken by
two different people in locations hundreds of miles apart - one
indoors and the other outdoors. The only common factor is that the
subject of the photograph has masonic connotations. I would be interested
to hear your views.
In March 2005 I asked - Have I caught a Ghost
on camera? A photograph was taken of the old Registry Office at
Anfield Cemetery and there seems to be a figure in the lower left
set of windows. It is almost as if the figure is raising curtains
to peer out. I would value the opinion of other people...
Hidden behind a decaying facade in Deane Road, Kensington, is an
old Jewish Cemetery. There is only one entrance and the whole place
is surrounded by a high wall and completely concealed by the adjacent
