Spirits on film
It never ceases to amaze Debbie what she is able to capture on film.
Since the beginning of time, there have been reports of humans seeing, feeling, sensing, being frightened or haunted by spirits. Over the years, Debbie has travelled to many locations around the world that are reportedly haunted. She has seen and experienced many unexplainable paranormal events.
In some cases, she has been lucky enough to capture spirit on film. This gallery contains some of the more intriguing images captured by Debbie, both on film and digitally with her cameras and iPhone.
It is not Debbie's job to make you believe or disbelieve. If the images contained within this gallery start to make you wonder what you are seeing and what you are not, her job has been done. Enjoy!
Ghost in the bell tower
Can you spot the hooded figure standing to the left-hand side of the bell tower? This is Burnside War Memorial Home, where my mother worked when I was a child. I always hated sitting in the car with my father and brother waiting to pick her up from work. I felt we were being watched and it gave me the creeps. It wasn't until I was an adult that I would return on a ghost tour and capture this image. It seems we were being watched after all!
William Charles Wentworth (1790-1872)
Born in 1790, William Charles Wentworth was Australia's first barrister, establishing Australia's democratic rights and later was elected as a representative for the legislative council in the colony of New South Wales.
William's remains are interred at The Wentworth Mausoleum, which was once part of the 19th Century Vaucluse House Estate owned by the Wentworth family. The mausoleum is now heritage listed and a popular historic site for visitors, many of whom claim to have spotted the ghost of William!
This image was captured on my iPhone 6s during one of my night-time visits to the mausoleum. I had a sudden feeling somebody was standing in front of me. The hairs on the back of my neck and arms were literally standing up. I decided to take a photograph and then I spotted a man in front of me. I apologised profusely for blinding this poor man with my camera flash. However, the man did not respond and then disappeared. I thought it must have been my imagination but when I got home and looked at the photographs on my phone, there he was. The image on the phone bears an uncanny resemblance to the portrait of William.
