First about me...
When I was extremely young I was visited by something, quite often, I can only describe as deceptively evil, especially to a toddler. I can say this, their existence had mocked the Trinity. Some years later as a preteen I was told to remove a Oujia board (Pre-Parker Brothers...1934 board) from a house and "get rid of it." I did... but not properly.
Growing up I also resided in a house built in the 1880's and also served as a doctors office during the turn of the century (19th to 20th). My parents often spoke of, what I now know a a residual haunting, both of them seeing the apparition of a woman dressed in early 20th Century clothing. I myself had only seen it in shadow for one evening very briefly, at first thinking it was my mother.
One of my penchants in the Crypto community, mostly investigating the Sasquatch, I call out baloney and apply my rationale as a former Private Investigator, and Forensic Interviewer, to all cases.
An interesting picture, but let's be true to ourselves...
Take this interesting picture of the Lizzie Borden Bed and Breakfast and its subsequent enlargements:
Well that is one explanation. But is it?
Could it be Pareidolia, better known as matrixing to some?
A brief side note on Pareidolia, which was a term coined by the scientific community to describe why people would see faces, or human shapes in things. Carl Sagan theorized it was a survival instinct.
Unfortunately, science can get over zealous and uses the same "principle" in their pitiful attempt to push aside EVP's (Electronic Voice Phenomena), which I don't buy for a New York minute.
I'm sorry, but when I know there is nobody around and I hear a clear, distinct, gendered, voice replying to a question I just asked, on a recorder, when I did not hear anything in live time, I call BS on the scientific community for it's casual dismissal claiming Pareidolia. How about proving that?
But I digress for the picture's sake...
As for this picture, I can only apply Occam's Razor, (the simplest explanation is usually the correct one), in that there was a tour group in the house as I was taking pictures awaiting my turn.
Is it possible, that the tour group stirred the spirits in this tragedy?
Well it is possible. Anything's possible.
But for me, I have to apply logic and sound science, and it's most likely one of the tour group looking out the window, at this kook from New York, taking pictures of the house from all angles.
