I have to give full credit to Brandon (MPPIR) for finding this ghost picture in one of my collections of photos.
There is now a contention and belief that “The Robed Lady” paces back and forth in the Ice Room. Many have felt cold chills, goose bumps or from some more “sensitive” persons, energy passing through them. I personally have felt all these in the Ice Room. I do not like going into this room alone. Not fear of “The Robed Lady”, more fear that she will show up to say “Hi” and nobody will be around to witness it.
As a side note, I have also begun to wonder why when my pictures are focused on the wrong subject or out of focus I end up with something in them. Like this one.
Photo 1, is very recent and was taken during a Ghost Tour at the Jail Museum. Photo 1 is once again in the “Ice Room” and because the face appears female we are going to refer you back to the first post of a picture of The Robed Lady in or near the ice room.
Now if you don’t see it fear not. I didn’t either. What I first saw and moved on from was a ghostly image of Ric (MPPIR). Ric is standing along the back wall. If you look real close you can see a figure of a man. Its blurry but that is Ric.
My Camera is sitting on a tripod for this shot to reduce and eliminate any camera shake. The shutter setting is 20 seconds. I was focused on the archway as that was the last picture I had of the robed lady and was hoping she would show up there. I was wrong.
Now lets talk about matrixing or paredoilia. Because that is the first theory I turn to when analyzing photos of faces in mist or blurred spots.
I would go with this theory right about now if it where not for the my simple plan to make sure I can rule it out by taking extra shots of an area. I try to always take two pictures of the same subject, if not more.
So get ready to toss this photo out as matrixing?
So I bring us to a photo I took shortly before this one.
With this setting on the camera, Tv( Shutter Speed ) 20 seconds. Photo 3 is taken right before Photo 1 with 1 second between them. Both me and Brandon could not see a face in this photo at all. I still see Ric and all the other features. Including the laser lights. I did not move the camera or the tripod and was still focused on the archway.
Now in Photo 3 I can see a face. As I have been training my eyes and brain to rule out matrixing I will throw this face out. It’s not the same but if you want to play the matrix game you can. You can see what looks like a very long nose using the features of the rock to make and other rock features to make out the eyes, eye sockets and cheeks. It’s in the same area just larger. This matrix-ed face would be very distorted and quite large. You can even use your mind to add a forehead. See Photo 3a.
Why are these rock features in Photo 3(a) and not Photo 1? Lets take a close look at the rock features. Photo 4 is in monochrome so that you may see the features of the rock.
Photo 4, Shooting Date/Time 4/16/2011 6:55:17 PM, was taken after Photo 1 and Photo 3.

Why do I not believe that Photo 1 is matrixing and Photo 3 is? For matrixing to work as a theory in my opinion you have to rule in features of objects you know exist. I know the features of the rock in this room. I photograph them all the time. I know that the matrixing theory is that one makes familiar objects and sees a face with them. This is done in photography all the time. My facial recognition software uses the same ideology to pick out faces in photos. I use this software to examine all my pictures.
Could I be wrong? I could be. I could be just wanting to believe. I see her face, coming out of the wall. To me it appears slightly forward of the wall. I could pick this apart and find all the rock features, I have. To me though I see her face, brightly I see her face. I don’t see it in the other pictures I took of the room that night. Not one.
Then again I am not the one who discovered this photo. Brandon did.
Once again I will leave you deciding for yourself and with two other strange photo’s I took that night.
Authors note: There will be a few of you that wont see her. For this I have added Photo 8. Click to enlarge this to see where I point out the details.
