Ghost pictures cause a stir

An amateur photographer’s snaps have caused quite a stir in the ghosthunting world.

Photographs taken by Mark Baker, 37, at The Mount, in Guildford, appeared to show a white human form.

Barri Ghai, director of The Ghostfinder Paranormal Society, studied the pictures and said he thought they were genuine.

He added: “I am stuck for words on this one – these images have caused quite a stir amongst my team.

“We are actually convincing ourselves that this could be genuine, a real ghost, but obviously for us to say that without a full investigation of the area is a tough one.

“At first glance I thought it could be a light anomaly, 99% of all photos have an explanation and my impression would be an anomaly caused by the light and camera.

“I am going to say it is a pretty spooky looking photo, but could not say 100% it is a ghost – it is really unusual.”

The site where the photographs were taken would have been used for executions in the town in days gone by. Alice in Wonderland author Lewis Carroll is also buried nearby.

Mark said: “I have just got a new timer for my camera and wanted to get some photos of the fog lifting – so my camera was just taking pictures.

“It was not until I got home and was downloading, I noticed it.”

Philip Hutchinson, who runs the Ghost Tour of Guildford and is a member of the council of the Ghost Club, said: “I do not think it is fake. It is not the sort of photo I was expecting, almost always they are illuminated bits of dust on the flash – this is something very different.”
