What is it?

While looking through my camera ready to upload some more photos I spotted this odd thing in two photos, can't really see it in the first one but see if you can spot it, it is very clear in the second.

There's a teddy bear in the top right hand quarter of the first photo.

Just a reflection on the lens
jaqueline

I'm not so sure it is a reflection on the lens because of where I was standing at the time. In the first photo there is an 'orb' two arches in near the top, it's faint. In the second photo, if you can zoom in there are actually two.

What is puzzling me is that I have seen photos taken by Christians in Baghadad which are covered in these same 'orbs' not only in photos but they are also seen about them in church with the naked eye. The vicar of Baghadad (Andrew White) says they believe that they are angels or even perhas those mysterious 'wheels' that the prophet Ezekiel speaks of.

Now I have to confess  that I have seen 'orbs' myself and I know it is not my glasses, I have actually been sat in a church service and noticed them, others have seen them too, so have I somehow caught them on film?

How do you know this?

I'm afraid I don't buy the orbs stuff.

I kind of grew up inside theatres (Dad's job), and when you turn the house lights out in an auditorium, and use only spots - you get loads of them. It's the way the light catches on dust. I've spent hours staring at them. Not that some of the shows were every boring....  But then I've seen Cyril Smith live....

Neither do I but having seen the photos from St George's church Baghadad and read of the first hand accounts of what they see around each other and in church....I must point out that the vicar of Baghadad has been to where I live and spoken about what it is like in Iraq and the persecution of Christians there and that the 'orb' thing is a very real thing to him and them.

An orb would have moved. This was a photograph and that ORB is the reflection from the lense. Try blowing it up and you will see it is a refelction. Or rather deflection of the light within the lens.

Proof would be to stare at a light or light bulb and close your eyes. You will see the light still reflecting off the back of your eyes lens.


It has moved, if you look very carefully at the first photo you can see by how far it has moved in the second and if it was a reflection of dust or light on the lens it would be in the same place only it isn't.

I had taken a whole series of photos that day and there is no sign of dust etc on the lenses in other photos, it is just in these two.

So, what do you think the circle is, Jacq?  Are you suggesting maybe it's something supernatural or mystical?

The fact it may be have appeared to 'move' could be down to the fact the pics are taken at slightly different angles/perspectives.

Just for the record, I'm with those who think it's a trick of light and easily explainable by the natural.

I agree.
jaqueline

I have no idea what it is, which is why I'm asking and actually I do have a dust spot on an old photo and it looks nothing like what is on these two.

And what if it is something out of this world, why can't we acknowledge it? Why do we have to pretend it is dust etc?

Jacq, as you've said: you don't know what it is - but haven't offered an opinion and yet have rejected possible and rational explanations.  Using your same reasoning and the same logic why pretend it's something out of this world when it's merely a trick of the light?

Personally, I wasn't pretending anything but it's clear, well to me anyway, that it's easily explainable - it's a 'trick of light'.  To my eye, it's clear it's not 'moved', and that the two photographs have been taken at slightly different angles and perspectives.

Simples.



Edited: to amend - because on re-reading, the grammar was appalling.
