Two photos - one ghost?

Recently i was reading about photos from the Stanley hotel, one from and the other from a facebook page.
Now i don't know if its just me but does this child that showed up in different photos from different people look similar? Am i going crazy or what? ;)

Photo one taken from here

Photo Two taken from Do You Believe In Ghosts? on facebook. The lady that took the photo is called Sharon Breiner Waltrip. P.S if you can't see the ghost... check out the bottom left corner! :)

Additional info: Here is what Sharon says about her photo:

4th floor of the Stanley Hotel, Estes Park Colorado - hotel where Stephen King was inspired to write the Shining. 4th floor is said to be haunted by children. Photo taken with Nikon Cool Pix, 5:30pm in the evening, children seen in the hallway with their hands out were part of a history tour group we were with. Tour guide had asked these two in the hallway to hold their hands out and asked if any ghost children were present to come forward and to hold their hands. We took photos - my shock to see what showed up in the lower left corner of the photo. ISO 400. No reflective surfaces near the camera. No small children in our group.

Now the skeptical side of me goes "awww come on the bluish photo could be of anything??" but then I see Sharons photo and i thought "hang on a sec, the faces look similar"?

What are your thoughts...?

Below are two "ghost" photos i found in the news today. I posted them on the weekly news bit of the blog but I thought I would also post them here. I am interested to hear your opinions on these...

Mine is the first is a trick of the light ie matrixing. I think the background (trees maybe) have formed in such a way and with the light shining through the branches it suggests to our mind its a face. Pretty creepy though.

The second photo is interesting but because of the motion blur it is too hard to tell what it is. Maybe if there was a photo of that area that wasn't blurred we might be able to reference which parts of the photo should be there and which aren't. It'd also be interesting to hear if there had been any activity in the house before or not?

Getting to know your Paranormal Investigators: Interview with Sydney Paranormal Society's founder Holly Butler

Very recently i met a girl through facebook called Holly who's also interested in the paranormal, is also from Sydney and has set up a group called Sydney Paranormal Society.

How long have you been involved with the paranormal?

I have been involved with the paranormal since I was 4 years of age but became serious about investigating after watching The X-Files when I found it on TV in 2000.

What prompted you to start your own paranormal group?

I started SPS because i found that there were over 50 people on a site called who were interested in the paranormal and wanted to give them a group to belong to and also because I found that there were a lot of like-minded people who wanted to do some investigating and SPS would give them the chance to.

What paranormal experiences have you had?

I have heard voices and seen full bodied apparitions, shadows and had entities touch me on the hand.

What are your plans for the future of the group?

I plan to make a sub branch of SPS called Sydney International Paranormal Phenomena who would obviously go and do investigations overseas. I also plan to take SPS to the US and UK to conduct some joint investigations with a number of groups over there who have expressed interest in having us come over and join them.

If someone is experiencing paranormal activity - what is your advise for them?

My advice for anyone who thinks they are experiencing paranormal activity is to write down when where and what the activity is ie 'Bedroom 9pm - saw pencil on desk move of its own accord' and keep a log. If it starts getting out of hand ie they start getting violent reactions ie hair pulling, face slapping, being pushed down stairs, doors slammed in face etc, then we are more than happy to come out and do a full investigation at no cost to them.

How can they contact you?

Contact can be made via email: or via our myspace email or our facebook site

Experiences with the Paranormal: My friends ghost

I had a copy of Seeking Spirits - a book by Jay and Grant from TAPS Ghosthunters in my bag and it started a conversation with my friend about ghosts.
She confided in me that a few times now she's woken up and seen an old man standing by her bed and once leaning over the cot where her daughter sleeps. I asked a few questions like was it just a shadow? But she said the man had features and he didnt look very nice. She'd only ever seen it at night and just as she woke up. Could it be she was halucinating/dreaming or sleep deprived? - Yes it totally could be that, being sleep deprived can do funny things to people. But she had seen this figure for up to half an hour at a time!
I told her if it hadn't done anything manevolant she shouldn't be too scared. If anything it appeared to be watching out for her. Maybe it was her guardian angel? Could be a human spirit? or a residual haunting?
