In 2006, whilst Mike was looking around an allegedly haunted location in Devon, he took the following photograph with a Fujifilm Finepix 2200 digital camera. Although pretty much every other photo taken at the time was empty, this one raised some interesting questions...

The first thing that captured Mikes attention was what seemed to be staring back at him from the television screen. Literally. Upon closer examination it looked like a face was there looking straight at him. Here's a slightly-enhanced close-up. To Mike the face is very clear and is of a middle-aged gentlemen, possibly around his 40's and appears to be Victorian in style. If you take the camera flash on the screen to be the tip of his nose you can see the nose bridge directly above it, then to the left and right of that you can see dark areas where the eyes should be. Above this you can see the bald curve of the head (although some people have said that they can see hair growing at the sides of the head). Directly to the right of the flash a cheek is visible, and directly below it a clear bushy, handlebar moustache can be seen.

But that wasn't the only interesting thing in this photograph. When Mike first saw the band of light in the photo that runs down the facing wall he dismissed it as a reflection from a mirror or light coming in from a doorway. But it soon emerged to him that both possibilites could be very quickly ruled out as explainations. Because of the way that the band arcs at the top to the right it can be assumed that the source must have been to my right; possibly on the wall beside me. However, said wall had just a few small picture frames hung on it and none were big enough to reflect such a large band of light onto the wall. Not only that, but the only other two doorways in the room were behind me and around a corner, so any light coming in from them would have hit the wall directly behind me. Also, to rule out a light source from behind, a comparison photo was taken very quickly after this one was done in a different part of the room, but still focussing on the same area...

As you can see, the band of light that features so prominently in the last photo is nowhere to be seen in this one. Also, like every other photo taken which had a TV screen on it, the television is showing nothing more than a blank grey. The main photo was the only time anything ever appeared on a television. Although there's always the possibility that the face on the TV screen could be a clever reflection caused by the contents of the room, the band of light on the wall is proving very hard to explain.
