Builder takes picture of a ghost. Link includes eerie I can't tell by the pixels photo
[link to www.thesun.co.uk]

A BUILDER demolishing an old school discovered this eerie image of a young boy in a mobile phone picture taken of the site.

The snap of the part-demolished brick building seems to show a boy aged around eight with short hair and wearing old-fashioned clothing, standing looking into the camera.

Workman John Fores, 47, only spotted the shadowy figure when he was looking back through the photos.

Hull News and Pictures

He was carrying out demolition work on the site of Anlaby Primary School near Hull, East Yorkshire, and took several snaps to record the work.

Mr Fores said: "I took a few pictures and at the time didn't notice anything.

"But when I put the pictures on the computer and I saw the figure, the hairs on the back of my neck stuck up. I couldn't believe what I had seen.

"I didn't believe in ghosts but since I got this picture I am not so sure."

The school, which is still in use, was built in 1936.

Caretaker Gordon Bradshaw, 54, said the school has long had a reputation for being haunted.

He said: "I've been here 29 years and the kids have always said there is a ghost at the school."

Rob Taylor, of the Hull Paranormal Ghost Society, said: "I have never seen anything as clear and as distinctive as the boy in the picture.

"I am aware of people using mobiles and getting orbs and misty images. But I think it needs investigating further."

Definitely worth researching for a hoax. If they can't find evidence that would be damned eerie!

IDK...something is off proportionately with
that kid. He looks too big from where he's
standing.

That was my first feeling as well. I'm calling it photoshop. If he would've made the boy just a tiny bit smaller, it would have been very convincing.

And the related story about the girl in the castle is CGI.

Sorry, still the most "convincing" hauntings I've seen come from ghost hunters. And even they are probably fake. At least most of them.

I am sure someone can actually identify the figure in the picture.
Take it to a professional photo shop get it enlarged and enhanced and then publish it in the local area!!

it's a real photo, but not a ghost.

the pants and shoes are part of the foreground mud and brick. the pic of the boy is painted on the house in the background. your eye puts the two together naturally hard wired to, but the proportions are wrong.

Since Funney put that b/w enlarged pic on, I can't see any thing physically real about the boy. The mouth/face looks well.., eerie. JMO
