One more quick blog post before bed (I work at 7 AM tomorrow - as Paul would say, boo you whores!) Look at this picture:
This is a picture that seriously freaked me out as a kid. This photo was taken at the Maritime Museum in Greenwich, England in the late 60s. The staircase is called the Tulip Staircase. What started life as an innocent photo of a gorgeous spiral staircase takes a decidedly X-Files turn. WTF is that? It looks like it has three eyes. And is the body human? Or animal? Or what exactly? Needless to say, this is a very famous ghost photo, and one that was in all the books I ever checked out as a kid on ghosts. No matter how many times I see it, it still gives me the heebie-jeebies as if I were still 10 years old. I don't know why, but it does. It's kind of like I don't know exactly why I was scared by The Grudge, but I was.
What is even freakier is that the negative has been examined and it shows no signs of tampering. When I die, I hope that this mystery (along with the several conspiracy theories I'm dying to know the real story behind) is solved for me immediately.
I may have to blog more to push this picture a bit further down the page. Sorry Heidi!
