Jim's Haunted Doll

Getting rid of ghosts
Written by Jim Eaton








I was visiting the Winchester Mystery House in San Jose Ca with an out of state friend. I loved the Grand Ballroom so that I had to take the best pic possible and especially get the stained glass windows and the mantle and clock and mirror evenly in this pic. This room is roped off. Each tour has a guide with us. Every other picture on the internet is taken approx at the same distance as my photo was taken. While uploading this photo, I noticed a small figure at the bottom right corner in the mirror that looks like a bald creature sitting in the corner of a SMALLER ROOM on a chair with its head leaning against the head rest. The chair also looks like its in front of a window or a door. The creatures head is turned to the left and its staring at my camera. I cropped a smaller portion off of just the mirror to get a better look of this and circled it in green. I DID NOT ORIGINALLY SEE THIS THROUGH MY LENS or I would have questioned it right away. *Camera used on that day at approx 2pm, summer time with my Nikon Coolpix P2 in Auto-Mode with flash. I would love to have anybodies opinions on these photos. Thank You, Michelle

To us it looks like a ghost image of a man in the mirror. Pretty cool! I have been to the Mystery House many times and that ballroom is the last room on the tour. Many feel it's also one of the most haunted rooms. Personally, I have always felt a difference in that particular room. _Jim
