White Mist Over Them


There have been several deaths in and on the site of the house I live in with my mum and my siblings. The only ones that have been made clear to us is of a little girl who drowned (I live near a farm and the street that I live on used to be farmland) and a "dominant" male who's intention is unclear. Though I feel that there are more than these two.

The house has always been active and things would always disappear/go missing, you'd see things out the corner of your eye, you'd hear things when you're the only one in the house, the front door will always slam shut when you're alone and my dogs go mental because they can see something but it's recently got more active in my opinion. Even now, I'm in the built on extension and I can hear what sounds like furniture being dragged across the floor and it's broad daylight.

We're actually the longest people to live in the house (we've lived in it about 14 years?). Also one of the spirits here is apparently violent and it strangled my dad in his sleep (before him and my mum broke up) and he refused to sleep up there any longer.

Last year me and my mum and a couple of other family members went up to Durham for my Great-Uncle's and Auntie's wedding which was in a standard church. After the ceremony we all took photos of each other. I have a plain, old digital camera and my mum has a professional photography camera and we were also taking photos of each other. Mine didn't get anything (and I was taking photos of the graveyard and everything) but my mum's photos turned out weird. There's no explanation for it to be fair because we looked through her other photos that she had before and the ones after and it hasn't happened again.

In these photos, my Great-Uncle and his wife have a white mist over them on all the photos they have together. This doesn't make sense because no one was smoking, there was no mist! My Uncle Jason, my cousin and my Auntie Lisa were over on the other side of the room at the time. My mum took 2 photos of my Uncle Jason and my cousin together and they look as if they are being blurred into each other, which again doesn't make sense. My Auntie Lisa also has a blur right to the side of her head and it's pretty unmissable.

Greetings, Laura-Teri, and welcome to YGS.

I'm going to agree with BrokenTree's assessment because there is either a reflected light (camera flash from your uncle's forehead), a direct light source in the frame (sunset through a window, a candle), or a combination of the two (picture 3) and the blur is in roughly the same location in each image. I suspect there may be a small chip or fracture in the lens which is more apparent when an intense light is present in the image.

I do look forward to more details about the activity in your home, as this sounds like you've lived with very active ghosts. (It may be a an odd reaction to one of my personal fears, but I'm really curious to know how you learned about the girl who drowned.)

If it wasn't a problem with the camera I'd expect this "mist" to be in different positions. It isn't. So as BrokenTree said it is more likely a problem with the camera.

I have, after all, lived in plenty of haunted houses. Including one where they actually kept the bodies of the dead in the parlor after a terrible accident for "viewing" as the church basically held a mass funeral.

Mists, orbs, etc. Generally move about.

Miracles! <3

Somehow, I didn't realize it had been... Literally years. Time flies, I suppose!

Things have changed quiet a bit on here, but I'm looking forward to settling back in:)

There could be a problem with the camera itself. BrokenTree was right that the blur all seems to be in the same area, which could point to a problem with the lens, ect.

That is a lot of activity in the house.

Hi Laura-Teri! Thanks for writing your article.
I cannot imagine how it must feel to be in such an un-explainable and uncomfortable position, and most especially when you can't get answers. I can tell you that I have also lived in a few haunted houses, and what I can sort of see, about your house or ghosts is that they do seem to, at the very least, try and not interfere with you and your family. That is significant because it means that;
1 or 2 of them are stuck or lost:
They do not know where they are or that they have passed so they go about their business as they would if they were alive. However, every now and again, they manage to move something in the house like a door or maybe, an ornament. It's not malicious, maybe they were just going about their day and happened to move something without meaning to.

I believe this to be a camera problem. If you look at each photo, the blurriness appears to be in the same place in all the photos. I would take the camera in for repair.
