During a recent trip to New Orleans, one thing I really wanted to do was take a ghost tour. I did my research (side note: I love research!) and settled on Historic New Orleans Tours Inc.
Our tour guide, Augustine, was pretty great. She gave us the history and background on the various haunted locations we visited without sensationalizing it. One of the places she took us to was the Bourbon Orleans Hotel. In the ballroom, she told us the tale of a young woman who pined away in that room until one night when she was found dead in the corner. I took a picture of the corner:
It just looked like a camera malfunction to me, but Augustine said it was an orb. She urged me to share the picture, and I heard a few gasps of disbelief among my fellow tourists.
So, what do you think – ghost orb, or non-paranormal photographic anomaly?
