Orb photos, Stanley Hotel Ghosts, Guardian Angels and Karma

“But I don’t want to go among mad people," Alice remarked. "Oh, you can’t help that," said the Cat: "we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad." "How do you know I’m mad?" said Alice. "You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn’t have come here.” - Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland, Quotes

(Note regarding post status: Apparently, NOT the Orb photos most are looking for.)

Wendy's Coffeehouse 11/4/18 -

In this show/podcast, I talked about some of my encounters with The *Stanley Hotel Ghosts, verbal warnings from Guardian Angels and I mentioned some of the Orb photos I have taken. Note: I have an interview scheduled with Tim Scullion on his Ghost Photography. 

In this first image, I knew the person, having connected with him on his daily walks. I met his daughter and discovered some of the family history after he died.

In passing, we talked about her Mom and the possibility of an estate sale. I knew someone who could help. Her dad was friendly and walked the neighborhood trailing an oxygen tank and companion collie. I would miss his comforting presence.

I was working at the desk when one of the lights on the lamp went out. The doorbell rang and I was greeted by his daughter who handed me two smiley face cups.

 I took a picture of the lamp after she left. The bulb came back on. Only later, in reviewing the photos, did I notice the orb on the stand, half way up - at the same level as the books in the background.

The second image was another happy accident. I have no idea why I took the photo. Possibly a redecorating fantasy. On the couch is a recently acquired garage sale pillow. Beside the pillow is an orb.

I have curtailed my garage sale, estate sale and open house tours. Several encounters taught me to respect boundaries and attachments.

Recently deceased occupants are often lingering and determining who gets what. Sometimes they venture out to survey the new arrangement.

I have had at least one instance of being given a certain item I had no intention of purchasing and was not in the bag when I walked out - having somehow found away to my house.

It was a DVD and a very sweet story - just one I intentionally set aside in favor of those I was familiar with.  

Here's another photo anomaly. First year in the house and I wanted a picture of the Christmas tree. Bonus: Christmas Ghost.

One person said it was the camera strap. Another suggested my hand was the source and another said it was 'fog'. If it is any one or none of those things, it was the only image with 'fog' in that group. Apparently the 'Ghost' held her breath for the rest of the photo shoot. (No camera strap that I remember.)

There are others but the most unusual image is one I didn't take. I'll save that one for a later post.
