Photo Review – Part One

We often get asked to have a look at photos and people ask us “Is this something?” “Is it an orb” or “is it paranormal” and the best answer we have is “that’s strange” or “we’ve never seen anything like that”. We have collectively taken 1000s of photos between all of the places we have visited over the years and we can usually say with some certainty if something is explainable. To that end we can tell if a photo contains smoke, rain, or foreign objects, as Steve spent an afternoon many years ago photographing flour, dust, smoke, water, mist, dirt, pollen, dead insects and many more loose detritus just to see what it looked like. So the best answer for any photo is “we don’t know” or “that’s unexplainable” because that’s the best anyone can offer, no-one can say for sure if a photo is paranormal because there is no definition of paranormal, only the unexplained. We will over the coming weeks try to give more of an explanation as what we think makes a photo unexplainable or the reasons that we deem the photo to be of a haunted nature.

Following on from our post about Thermal Images and evidence we thought we would explain some of our evidence, especially photos or videos because you the viewer have no other information about how it was captured or recorded. You weren’t there so you have no idea about the weather conditions either.
We will also explain some photos that were thought to be evidence before we ruled them out as being normal or explainable.

Firstly, the two thermal photos posted on our Social Media channels. The first image we captured at Harwich Redoubt we knew what it was, although we were really surprised to capture it.

One of my team happened to be holding the thermal camera when other team members were asking questions to the spirit via a Ouija board. One of the questions was “Can you show yourself?” the answer was “Yes” and then the team member saw a head and body appear on the screen about the size of a 9 year old girl (which was the spirit that the Ouija board group were talking to). Nothing was seen by anyone, they only saw on the thermal imaging camera the shape of a person. Thankfully a photo was taken of what was seen at the time.

The second photo was taken this year at Shepton Mallet Prison. A group of people had noticed that a figure was present when no-one else was around. This figure once again only was visible on the thermal camera, the group checked for reflections and anything else that could have made a humanoid shape and could find nothing that could have made this shape.

If it were a direct or indirect photo of a person it would have hotter areas and the colours would be different (reds, oranges and yellow) as blue is the coldest. For comparison here is a thermal photo of a group of people.


The area that this was taken was in a corridor as you walk towards the dispensary (where inmates would get their medication), a little further along in this area is the morgue.

We cannot say for sure if these photo are definitely paranormal, but we can say is that these were only seen on the thermal camera at the time, no-one saw anything in the room without the aid of the thermal camera.
