Welcome, My name is Sandy and this is my story. Take it for what its worth.
I have just recently taken interest in Orbs and Vortex photos. While visiting a friend in
Tennessee/2004 summer, I found that in a few of the 150 photos that I had taken were some odd looking shapes
and circles in about 5 of my photos.ViewThere was no explanation as to what or why these five photos had turned out this way.
I decided to go on the net to find out just what they were or what was causing the unusual shapes, sinse I
knew that my camera was in very good working condition. I had talked to my sister and she had told me that they were
called Orbs and Vortexes. She sent me to a site that would explain a little about them. Well to make a long story
short, Orbs and Vortexes are spirits (ghosts) in the form of energy that gets it's charge from humans, electrical
wires, batteries, etc. You can read up on this by going to: National Ghost Hunters Society.
Another nice place to read up on and learn is at Ghost Study
Studies show that cameras, such as digital, digital web cam, 35 milimeteras and even Polorid will pick up on a paranormal.I am
still skeptical but having an open mind, I take the information into consideration. Mind you, this is the first
time that I have ever had an orb show up in any of my photos and I have used a 35 millimeter camera for the past
22 years and/or a digital. About a week after coming home from Tennessee, I showed my daughter the few photos
and tried to explain to her what they were. Well needless to say, she thought I was going wacky. To prove me wrong she
suggested that we go to the cemetery and take a few pictures to see if we could congure up some Ghost Images (spirits).
The night was clear, about 80 degrees, no smog, no fog and no rain. It was about 8:30 p.m.. We took the pictures
with my usual DC 3400 Kodak, 2.0 Mega Pixel camera. After arriving at the cemetery my daughter had control of the camera,
,she was desperate to prove me wrong. To tell you the truth I was sure that she probably would. We took
about 60 photos that night, and then returned home at about 9:30 to d load the pictures into my computer. To my amazement,
we had a very successful first night at Ghost Hunting. Sinse then, I have been experimenting with Spirit Photography
to see just how many of these little critters will pop up in my photos. I have lived in my home for 27 years.
In those 27 years I have had only one photo that had orbs in it(I didn't know what they were at the time). Sinse my
first visit to the Cemetery on July 31, 2004, I have had many orbs showing up in photos taken in my home. Some say
the spirits will follow you home. Below you will find links to my Photos. See for yourself. See what you think.
