Private Residence - Norfolk
The following was sent to us be one of our readers...
"I live in Norfolk County in a 150 year old plus Victorian house located near the downtown area. When we purchased it, there was much need for repair and restoration so we go to it right away and within 6 years we had completely restored and repaired and replaced virtually everything.
Many things have happened here but I can show you if you like...
Long story short about 6 months ago I was photographing a vintage cream and sugar bowl set. The set is made of ceramic, glazed white and an overlay of silver mirror finishes the look for a nice effect. While taking these pictures I was standing way over to the left of the objects operating my computer, you will see though that the mirrored surface of this set was picking up everything going on behind/beside me. Once I had snapped the picture shown here, I gently guided the cursor back to the upper task bar of my screen when something caught my eye, I looked back at the picture and realized that there was very clearly a woman in a white Victorian dress standing on my staircase, so nicely posed with her one hand on the newel post and her other behind her back. You will clearly see that the 12 inch high wood stained baseboard beside her disappears completely behind Mary's dress.
Its a long story but I do know who she is.
I spent some time playing around trying to enlarge or darken or lighten the actual picture to see if I could see her better. I would suggest to you to try this yourself. If you change the picture to black and white and save it and use it as your wallpaper, you will be 'delighted' to see that her face starts to become much clearer. You can see one eye, her nose and her mouth. Her dress and form and hand also become clearer too.
We have experienced ten years of activity in the house and Mary does not seem to be alone. There seem to be several more presences in the house as well."
