High School Graduation Ghosts

These have to be the two strangest photos I’ve ever taken.

My (now ex) husband and I had been invited to a friend’s daughter’s graduation from Tombstone High School in Tombstone, Arizona. This was the final graduation from the old high school, which was located on Fremont Street, just a few blocks away from the O.K. Corral.

We had parked next to the tennis courts, which are on the corner of 6th and Allen Street, caddy-corner from the infamous Bird Cage Theater. After we parked I decided to take a few family photos with a 35MM camera. Nothing out of the ordinary was going on that night other than the graduation, and everyone around us seemed to be in a festive mood.

I couldn’t believe my eyes it when I got my photos developed. I’ve never seen bending light rays, nor have I ever seen light rays with varying luminosity. These anomalies also appear on the negatives. I just have to write it off as another accidental ghostly encounter.
