I think the suggestion is, that the face at the bottom of the picture, is of a child who was not actually there..... an unknown child to that group of girls perhaps?

It's very obviously there to me.... Ockham's Razor and all that.  :laugh:

I believe that most "spooky" pictures are the innocent result of a double exposure from that time that cameras had films that had to be wound on after each shot.   Don't suppose one sees many now that we are in the digital age.     

Here is a link to the article in the Mail.

Dr Keiran O'Keefe?  That guy from the Most Haunted Show on TV?  Like he's an expert!
He just de-bunks everything he sees.

If a ghost walked up to him, live on TV, and punched him on the nose in front of witnesses, he would put it down to some kind of hysteria.

No, that is a face... not a random collection of pixels and shadow.

Let me explain what really happened....

The photo was taken. When the friends looked at it, someone said "little johnny looks just like a ghost in that pic, doesn't he?". Everyone agreed and Mr Summers thought to himself "I can make some money out of this". So he phones up the Daily Mail, tells them all about it and they pay him £500 to use the photo.

Case closed.  8)

Hmm...  I wonder if they will give me £500 for my pic?  D)

I wonder whether the photo above captures the extent of just how cold it is.. perhaps the sea water has turned into ice vapour as it has splashed up.. this might seem a crazy idea, but in low temperatures, providing it has been persistently cold, sea water could in theory turn into ice vapour instantly.

Turning Water into Vapor

watch this.

Otherwise it does looks spooky, but it could just be splashed water, with all the splashing going on.. rather them than me!
