- so reads the caption that is usually found alongside this photograph.

Well it certainly looks as though the child is looking in the direction the anomaly is present in. Also when playing with children it is quite common to get down on their level, hands and knees and the 'ghost of light' seems to be doing that.
It does look like there is some interaction going on here. On the surface any-ways.
However there are many who point out that the 'ghost of light' could be nothing more than a smearing of light on a negative or that some light might be reflected back towards a camera or scanner from what could be a glossy photo print.
Of course we will never know for sure but what do you think?
Unfortunately I do not have a lot of information about this photo as generally it is thrown into lists of 'most creepy photos' without a whole lot of info present asides from the caption.
Was a ghost, possibly the child's deceased mother, caught on film?
Maybe it is just something else, light reflections or light smears on film?
Could it be just our brains interpreting things as looking like a ghostly human (pareidolia)?
Fact or Fiction, you decide!
