‘Ghost’ Reportedly Crashes Nighttime Shot of London’s Parliament Building

What happens when you try to take a nighttime shot without a tripod? Apparently, a ghost wanders into the frame and cocks up the whole thing. At least that’s what British photographer Jules Annan is claiming happened to him.

The professional lensman was out along the Thames on New Years Eve, waiting for the fireworks, when he decided to grab an image of the lights about the Houses of Parliament and Westminister Bridge. Reported specs: Nikon D800 with a Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8 lens set at ISO 400, f/22 and 1/25 sec.

Reviewing his shots later, Annan says he found a mysterious figure (specifically, “a Youth in a red jacket and beanie hat”) standing by the riverfront in a spot where there was absolutely nobody when he snapped the shot. ”There was no one there when I took the photographs and it is not a double exposure or a long exposure,” he told the typically staid Daily Mirror. ”I have shown it to five or six other people and they cannot explain it either.”

Conclusion: GHOST!!!

“Experts” in the paranormal have been quick to validate the “morose visitor from beyond the grave” theory. Others were less impressed, with YouTube commentators noting that elements of the image, particularly the smooth blurring of lights reflected in the Thames and the streak of blue on the bridge to the right, don’t jibe with the reported camera settings. Also interesting: Awfully empty for New Year’s Eve in a spot about to be bathed in fireworks.
