An Unexplained Photo Taken At Oak Ridge Cemetery
© copyright Tim Harte 1997
This photo was taken by Tim Harte in 1997 with a 35 mm camera using 400 speed film and flash.
Tim Harte (co-founder of G.E.I.S.T. and member of G.H.S.) took this photo as a routine control shot while investigating Oak Ridge cemetery. At first glance, this appears to be a finger in front of the lens. However, this is not the case. Mr. Harte was using a tripod mounted camera and his hands were no where near the lens at the time of exposure. Notice how there appears to be two orbs molding together as one with two distinct colors. Also note that the reddish orb appears to be in the foreground. In order for this to be a "finger shot", the effect would have only encompassed a small region of the field of view, usually in the lower left hand corner. This photo shows the effect encompassing the entire left side of the exposure. Upon showing this photo to other ghost enthusiasts, some claim to be able to make out the silhouette of a head within the white orb.
It should be mentioned that this area of the cemetery has had no history of ghostly sightings. However, during our investigation, we noted several influxes in EMF, infrared and visual light. During one EMF spike, a photo was taken of Michael Komen near the MESA equipment. The developed photograph shows a large orb hovering over his head. This photo will be posted on the web site in the future.
