I have looked at this a little more and it's been bugging me all afternoon. Was your friend by chance inside the museum taking the photo through a window. It really looks like a reflection of a museum display or media presentation - notice the rope going across in front of the woman's thighs. The windows in the background behind the image look rather large and look "museum-y" to me, and not from the same time period as the woman's dress. Just another possibility.

I wish I could get my hands on the negatives, but at any rate, she did take the whole roll herself. It was a vacation type thing with her grandchildren as the main subject matter in all the shots. I have seen shots in books with an halo type or ghostly fog and once a colorful aura appeared around a friend, but never have seen such a clearly defined person.

There are other object (scenery, the wall) in the "ghost" picture - it definitely looks like 2 images combined. Without looking at the negative it is hard to tell when/where it happened - whether it was in the camera or in the lab. Since it was at a historic site sould she have possible taken a picture of a picture there?

creepy..
<br>

<br>
and for it do be a double exposure she did theat picture would have to have been taken right before or after the one she knew she was taking...
<br>

<br>
did she take the whole roll of film herself? does she know what pics where before and after that one?
<br>

<br>
ghost or no it is quite a creepy looking picture..
<br>

<br>
maybe a ghost picture?

You don't have to be sorry, I don't know what it is, but she did not take a second pic of a lady. I was hoping for some logical explanation, but nothing seems to fit.

definitely weird! but, it can't be a double exposure if she never took the pic of the lady in the first place right? I assume if it was a double exposure she would of had to take both pictures. it does look kind of dated. hmmmm. strange :0)

This was taken by a friend with absolutely no photo skills. She was taking a pic of her grandchildren and this is what she got back… Point & shoot 35 mm.
