This photo was shot a little over a year ago and I've never published it anywhere until now. The photo was taken on a return trip to the hospital where my grandson had been born earlier in the day. When I saw this photo in printed form I got chills seeing what looked like a woman in the flames near the passenger door. Then I heard later that a woman and a child lost their life in this fire. So upon further inspection I could make out that it looked like a woman bending into the truck to get a baby. There has been absolutely no manipulation to this print other than the 100% crop inset I added so you could see the area in question better. What do you think ? Do you see what I see ? Thanks for viewing !

It is very sad photo and a terrible history... Yes this fragment of photo is very similar to the person ... Maybe it's a soul...

It could be just that Igor ! I've always been skeptical on these types of captures. But now that I have caught something odd myself I can't explain it. So there may be something to it. Thanks for your comments !

I too skeptic, but four odd events in my life, I too cannot explain by common sense. It's really, not so simple...
Warm regards, Billy!

For spot news, excellent. Figure; questionable. A rural road where it took awhile for emergency crews to arrive?

Thanks for your comment Mr. King ! Yes it is a very rural area in Paulding county here in Georgia. There were many people around but this fire was intensely hot. I could feel the heat from it a good distance away. Very shortly after this shot firefighters arrived.

I certainly can see what you see, and I agree entirely, a very chilling image.

And a very sad tale.

Well taken and spotted Billy. Blew it up and there is no chance of it being a woman. Spectragraph colors wrong for a human burning.

Thanks Barry, It is not meant to mean there are physical bodies burning there. The flames have merely manifested themselves in such a way as to resemble the face of a woman with long hair and a babies face. If you look at the crop inset you may see them. Look to the left of the cab column for the woman and to the lower right of the column for the baby face.
