Madison Middle School ghost photo

Our post about the Madison County Middle School caught the eye of reader Christen Allen, who said:

We've got a picture of three or four apparitions on the third floor of this building. The pic was taken at 1:03 am. three appear to be men, one a little girl sitting at a desk.
The photograph, taken by her friend Tamara Thomas of Richmond, does seem to show something peculiar-looking in the windows, but because of the sharp looking-upward angle of the photograph, I'm not entirely sure that what we're seeing could be people seated in desks. They look more to me like some sort of round-headed dolls or puppets that were placed on or near the windowsill. Hard to say for sure though.

Two versions of the image are presented here: the original, and a lightened version made in hopes of clarifying details. Click to enlarge.

the odd looking fellow in the window on the lower left is translucent, because you can see the edge of a door through him, meaning there's no way it could be a puppet or a doll. Plus, how would anyone be able to get inside a school at 1:03 am to stratigically place puppets in the window? We're going to try going back for a second try and see if we get the same photos or see if we can debunk some possiblities...we'll post updates later.

i agree, the figures are transparent and while i only see one that you could probably call an apparition, there are several others that could be maybes.

It could be a doll on the other side of the curtain. The light source making the curtain translucent being the camera's flash.

That is such an amusing image. Somebody in there at one in the morning thinking, "Man, I've got to hurry up and get these puppets in the window. Somebody is going to be here any minute thinking they're ghosts and wanting to take their pictures."

Speaking of ghosts in the windows of old Kentucky buildings. Here is something I found one day on Youtube:

whatever. I think the picture was taken during a school day and they just said it was 1:03 am
