Evidence

Real Ghost Pictures – Old Lady In The Window

Labeled under Real Ghost Pictures and found in Tremont, Illinois, some construction guys snapped this photo with a camera phone. The story goes that they were hired by the new owners of the home. According to them the lady who lived there had passed away nearly 3 months before. They had been working on the house for 2 days and the house is completely vacant.

It’s strange. Assuming the story is true then this is an amazing piece of evidence but if this is true then in reality this would be blockbuster proof. What do you think about this one?

UPDATE Jul 24th, 2012 – We’ve attempted to find more information about this particular photograph. We’ve been unable to turn up anything or even find contact details of anyone involved. While some of you say that little old lady is “too real to be a ghost” it still leaves one to ask if this is a real ghost picture.

  • Thomas, I can see where you are coming from, but unfortunately noone actually knows what a ghost is. My first impression is to deny and debunk it as well, but keep an open mind.

  • Thomas, I also see where you’re coming from. But I have witnessed first hand seeing a ghost this clear before. Not out of the corner of my eye, or barely, but directly walking in my view. He was very tall, wearing a blue hat, white shirt, and had a “no chin/neck” thing going on. He was, more or less, your average redneck.

  • This is a photo of a lady in a dressing gown looking at what the workmen are doing and resting her forearms on the casement window. There would be nothing mysterious at all about this photograph were it not for the information which accompanies it but that information may be unreliable in the sense that at that moment there may have been a visit to the new property from the new owner and her mother to see how work was progressing. I think it helps to exclude all natural explanations first! One needs more evidence to verify this picture as a gennuine ghost photo even assuming ghosts exist other than in the mind and can be photographed.

  • At first I wasn’t sure this was real, but if that is a real woman and not a ghost, she must be very tall, or that window is really low..

  • You def. have a history of dismissing everything and assuming it’s fake… I can’t fault you for being skeptical. I’m not even saying I believe the story behind this photo. But I guess it’s something you have to witness for yourself. Like I said in the post, if the story behind it is true, this is blockbuster evidence.

    If spirits can manipulate objects in the physical world (ie move things, as they have been known to do), why is a photo like this so hard to believe?

  • My take is simple… you either believe the story at-hand or you don’t. You have people who will say it’s fake b/c it’s “too real” and then you show that same person a photo that I would consider sketchy (out of focus, blurry, ect..) and they say it’s fake… why not just say you don’t believe in ghosts and stop visiting websites like this?

  • There is suspicion of photo shopping. If you save and open the picture with photo editor and soon in really far to see the pixels you can see a very straight defined line along the upper left side of the window. It is as if the entire window itself was photo shopped in. You may ask then how did they get it around the guys head? Well zoom on his head and you will see yet another straight defined unnatural line. Seems like his head was selected and cut out. Then the window was pasted in and the head was carefully placed back in to match up perfectly. Also, looks as if the middle bar of the window was hand edited in. In my experience with older houses these windows double paned or not usually have the lock in the middle and on top of the bar. This seems like a prank someone pulled on there co-workers that ended up getting posted do to their buddies being impressed by the work and suggesting it being posted for recognition. My comments are purely speculation and does not discredit this photo. I feel like this should be fully investigated by everyone that was there. It is definitely the best spookiest photo I have seen. Usually hoax will use sloppy methods such as using actual people with picture distortion. This is obviously not a real person. This photo being either completely legit/genuine or a hoax is really impressive at the very least with all do respect.

  • My second hoax guess is that the bottom half of the window is real. It looks like a curtain. And then the top half was pasted in. I took a second look and this would make much more sense to do it this way. I’m not a dis-believer in ghost and spirits. I’m a non-believer in people’s honesty.

    • I would agree but then you would have to throw out nearly every piece of legitimate evidence that exists. Lol

      That’s not to say I believe this is legitimate, I was speaking in general.

  • I would say its just a picture of an old lady looking out the window, but there’s one strange thing about it; her feet are level with the windowsill. Ok, so she could be standing on the windowsill. This 100 year old lady is balancing on the windowsill on the balls of her feet (a windowsill is only a couple inches deep) without the use of her hands as her arms are folded? She’s quite the acrobat. Just sayin’
