It seems like every few months, somebody is finding the face of Jesus in their toast, the image of a deceased relative in their drying paint, or the silhouette of the Virgin Mary in their soup. Sometimes these things seem eerily realistic, other times they seem bogus. What Susan De Vanny, an Australian tourist visiting the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor, found was definitely the former.
Susan captured a photo of water over the wreckage with oil shimmering from the sun, and amidst the ripples and light is the image of a ghostly-looking face that appears to be screaming. No, like an actual face.
Susan didn't realize what she had photographed at first, but when she was going through her vacation photos, she saw the scary image. She said, "I showed my husband and I didn't say anything, I said just have a look at the photo, and he said, 'Oh my gosh it's a face,' and then the kids saw it and they go, 'Oh wow.'"
While visiting the memorial, the De Vanny family learned that 1,177 sailors died aboard the USS Arizona during the Pearl Harbor attack in 1941 -- and that most of the bodies were never recovered. Susan feels that her photo is perhaps a message from beyond. She said, "It just looked really sad, really sad and young. The face, to me, looked young, which I don't know if it represents the men at that time who perished."
Hmm ... I'm not usually one to drink the Kool-Aid, but it kind of seems like it definitely is one of the men who perished. It's a face -- a screaming, clearly-distressed face. And Susan didn't notice it until she saw her photo. Things that only come up in photos are ghosts! Everybody knows that. That's Photography 101.
Whether you believe the image is a being from beyond or simply a random way the light happened to catch the water is all you. But you have to admit, it's a freaky photo. And you also have to admit it's totally a ghost.
