PHOTOHUNT: Scary

i've read in a few ghosthunting sites that if a ghost manifests itself in a photo, it would most likely be as an orb. so, every time i see an orb in a photo, i would think, "could that be a ghost?"

now, just imagine my surprise when i saw this photo of gabie ... not only does it have an orb, it's got lots of 'em! to me, it looks as if they're playing with him ...

i took this photo in december 2006. it was taken in front of a newly opened mall here in singapore, the vivocity. we used to live just a few blocks away from this mall. and around that time, i would often go there with the kids to hang around. mallrats, yeah i know.

this particular night, only gabie was with me. we were waiting for my husband who was supposed to meet us there from work. but, he was late. so while waiting for him, i allowed gabie to play around but never near the fountain because i don't want him to get wet. i didn't have any spare clothes for him.

while he was playing i took a series of photos of him with my handphone. and the one above is one of them. remember, we never went near the fountain, so it can't be water droplets. and below are the other photos in the series. the shot after this photo is completely free of any orbs as you can see here ...


but two other photos have at least one orb in it. as you can see in the one below, there is an orb on his head.


i don't know about you, but i'm scared. hey, that's my son with the orbs!

earthlingorgeous said...

Wow! Orbs? Wow I don't notice really I have some shots like that but I was thinking maybe wrong focus or something. But if they are indeed orbs wow if that was my child I would be scared too.

Hey sorry for spooking your kids with my scary post at earthly explorations. Happy weekend!

inyang said...

no worries, earthlinggorgeous. they love being spooked! my 7yo would even google for scary photos and search youtube for the videos to scare himself and his siblings ...

Carin said...

Oops that's scary indeed seeing all those orbs in the photo's with your son. Perhaps they are good ghosts who just want to join in child fun.

inyang said...

yes, i think so, too, carin :) thanks for dropping by!

little light said...

that could be moisture on you camera lens.btw, i've been to vivocity and i've seen that fountain. :)

inyang said...

hi little_light ... that's what i also thought at first ... but strange that the next photos after that one is very clear :) btw, gabie's a boy :D i know, the hair is too long haha

thanks for dropping by!

inyang said...

little_light, sorry i lost your other comment ... i don't know why it disappeared after i published it :(

Baker Watson said...

I think maybe they are the mysterious 'mall' ghosts. They are seldom seen but often heard as voices in one's mind. They normally say 'Come to the mall and spend money. More will come.'

Thank you for providing evidence that they actually do exist.

YTSL said...

Woooooah, was just thinking it was dust on your camera lens! But if the other photos in the series don't have those orbs...

inyang said...

@baker_watson ...

i think ur right! LOL thanks for visiting :)

inyang said...

thanks for visiting, @ytsl :D

A. said...

Spooky! A great post :)

Thanks for visiting mine :)

bingskee said...

could be reflections of the lights around, or moisture... i have photos with these orbs, too.

msdedi Reflex said...

very cute, and not too scary... interesting and curious orbs though

inyang said...

@bingskee ...
it's open for discussions :) thanks for dropping by ...

Mike said...

I'm not that sure about what "orbs" means, but it sounds very disturbing.
Nice shots.

julie said...

Orbs can be interpreted differently. Those in the photos can be scary, or can be interpreted as reflections. Baker Watson's comment is funny, by the way :D

Danielle Says Hello said...

Thanks for stopping by my place and saying hello....it really does look like he is playing with 'orbs' ;)

Bengbeng said...

this looks genuine. scary

Elisabeth said...

Wow Spooky.

babs (beetle) said...

Very nice post for the theme.

Just a note on the orbs. You sometimes get them when taking digital photographs in low lighting conditions. I've yet to see them on photos taken on a bright sunny day, or in a well lit room ;O)

JC said...

He sure looks like he's having a lot of fun with them, whatever they are!

He sure is a cutie!

Ladykli said...

Now THAT os definitely Scary! Especially seeing how the photo right after it is clear! Kinda creepy.

Thanks for looking at my skeleton costume. It would be real easy to make now a days. If you didn't want to cut out the bones out of fabric you could paint them on. They even have glow in the dark paint! That would be real cool!

Dragonstar said...

He and the orbs look to be having a great time together.

Alice Audrey said...

They're just visiting. As you said, it look like they are playing together.

eMz said...

could be dust (i'm wishing!) instead of water droplets. hehe!

dawn said...

Well I had never heard that before, but now will be thinking about it. My chicken coop photos have orbs. I like the photos you chose and the story behind them. Thanks for visiting my PH.

jmb said...

I'm sure there is some logical explanation but I have no idea what it is. I also haven't heard that ghosts appear before. Now you are scaring me. Thanks for visiting and have a good weekend.

7thstranger said...

creepy esp. since it's your kid in the photo...

thanks for droppin' by!

Shawie said...

whoaaa... that's scary to imagine!

Antonette said...

Oh wow! That is awesome! I love that kind of stuff. Doesn't scare me at all, just makes me very curious!

keiki3 said...

Interesting... thanks for visiting...

PastorMac's Ann said...

Now that really is scary! Although he is just too cute in these photos!

Thanks for stopping by for a visit.

Staci said...

I've found lots of orbs in lots of my photos! It is a little creepy to think about. Great photos! Thanks for stopping by!

Snap2days said...

Love the post...
weird thing with the orbs!

inyang said...

thanks to everyone who dropped by ... as i said, it's open to discussions and speculations :D

Irene said...

dust, reflections and sometimes the camera isn't ready and haven't got enough exposure and so on, this is what usually will happen in low light photo. Thanks for dropping by ;) Cute kids hehehe...

If it's really something bad(at least this is my friend experience), once you gotten photos like this and don't delete it and keep it, your life won't be peaceful. There will be always something bad that hit you until you delete the photos. That's what my friend encountered last time. He randomly snapped some photos and caught something "dirty" and didn't want to delete the photo, many bad things happened to him until he had to be admitted to the hospital for some unknown sickness, then after discharged and upon advise of his family, he deleted the photo. After that, nothing bad happen and life gone back as usual. Scary eh?

me ann my camera said...

I'll have to start noticing if I h ave any orbs in my photos. Interesting.

Karin said...

Oooh, you never know... they really might be all around us!

ian said...

your photos are too cute to be scary =] if gabbie aint bothered, you shouldn't be =]

Annie said...

Cool post! I love finding Orbs in my photos. Some people think they are angels!

Thanks for visiting mine and have a great week!

Brine Queen said...

Interesting take on the theme. Maybe they were waiting for the bus.

Thanks for stopping by!

Tanchi said...
