Paranormal Phenomena/Jesus apparition?

Hello, in 2011 I took a cemetery photo in Canada with a mobile phone.  Upon closer inspection of the photo, there appears to be a Jesus apparition.  The original photo is attached and is not altered at all.  The apparition can be viewed clearly by darkening the photo, since it is a light apparition during the day.  The apparition follows as a cropped, darkened, zoomed attachment and is otherwise not altered.  It was darkened, etc. to see it more clearly.  What do you think?  Also, I have an unaltered video of a spirit I captured but I don't know how to attach it to this.  Please advise.  Thank you.

Hello Sarah,

  Thank you for writing to me at All Experts / Paranormal Phenomena with your inquiry regarding your photograph. I have finish analyzing it and I need to say that I highly doubt that this is an apparition of Jesus, or of any other spirit. The form that you see just to the right of the pole in the upper quarter of the photograph is composed of light play and the foliage in the background. The foliage is consistent with that on either side. What you have encountered is an experience in pareidolia. That is when the mind tries to make sense out of chaos. The way that the eye works is also responsible for people seeing things that are not there. We tend to "fill in" the blanks.

  If you want to see more than just Christ in this photo, to the left of the pole one could assume the apparition of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.

  Sarah, here is what clinched my,"This is not a photo of Jesus" opinion. The photograph is taken in either a Jewish cemetery or the Jewish section of a cemetery. That is evident by the Star of David that is seen on at least three gravestones. As well there is a five star Menorah candelabra engraved on one of the stones [in the foreground]. Again, this is a Jewish symbol. According to Jewish belief the soul is divided into five parts. A candle is lit for each. The five branch Menorah symbolizes death and mourning. I also need to emphasize that even though with enough manipulation of the photo one can eventually see something that resembles Jesus, it is typical of what we are lead to believe that Christ looked like from artworks and not likely what he actually looked like in life. That being said, there is no reason that Jesus, being a Jew would not show up in a Canadian Jewish cemetery. This is not, in my opinion a photograph of that occasion.

  I hope that this has addressed your question about this particular photograph. I'm sorry that I could not be more positive with the results - but that is the very nature of this field if it is taken responsibly.

  Take care,

Paranormal Phenomena
