The Spirit Photography of William Mumler
There are many out there who have claimed to have captured a spirit in a photograph. In most cases the occurrence was completely unintended – while in other cases the person behind the camera has done so for that specific reason. Today, whenever we see a supposed spirit photograph, the spirit is either an orb, a wispy mist-like substance, or a light colored blob that is vaguely in a human like shape. The ghost photos we have today are entirely different than the spirit photos of the eighteen and nineteen hundreds.
