I have always been interested in ghosts. I don't think I have ever seen one but it was not from a lack of trying. That's probably a good thing because I get spooked easily, but for some reason I insist on doing things to try to scare myself.
Growing up I heard lots of stories about a Plantation in St. Francisville, Louisiana called The Myrtles. As a child all I heard all about the ghost stories. As an adult I am also interested in the history of this place. I had been to the house a few times in passing and had taken pictures but what I really wanted to do was stay the night in this house. It is a bed and breakfast so it's not hard to spend the night there but they do book rooms months in advance to stay in the house.
Well, last year my wish was granted when I got a birthday present from my boyfriend. It was a gift certificate for me to stay one night at The Myrtles Plantation. He only had one stipulation. He was not staying with me. His quote was, "I don't know if I believe in ghost or not and I don't plan on finding out."
That was fine with me because I had several friends who were interested in going with me. I called a friend of mine from out of town and asked her if she would meet me at the house for a night. I called the next day to book the room and there next opening was 6 months away so I booked it and waited.
Now I could speed all day telling you about the history of The Myrtles Plantation, between the history tour, the ghost tour and what I have read on line, but there is just too much information. You can Google it and find all sort of information. To start we had a hard time getting into our room. The key would not turn to open the door. My friend went to go get the guy working that day and as they came up the stairs the door decided to open.
We had a great time that night. We took the history tour during the day and the ghost tour at night. We stayed up late and walked the grounds at night. We heard several noises, some could later be explained and some could not. The reason for my story is to show a picture I captured while I was there and to get some of your input on it. I had several pictures with orbs in places there was nothing shiny and no water around. We got pictures that part of the photo was blurry but not all of it.
What I want people to help me with is a picture I took at night. I see a face in this picture clear as day and most people I talk to have said the same thing. A few people say they see nothing, but I don't see how. I am going to attach the picture with the face then a picture taken during the day from about the same place. I also have a picture with the face I see cropped out. You can see the edge of the bridge for comparison.
I am just wondering if there is something there or if its my overactive imagination.
