The Birthday Party

For my daughter's 10th birthday, she invited six girls over for a slumber party. While nothing unusual occurred during the party, I noticed several unusual things did appear in the pictures I took of the girls. In the process of trying to understand my "haunted home" better, I've come across a lot of information about "orbs" in my research. I would've passed off these circles that have been appearing in all my pictures since moving in to the home as reflections. After reading more at other ghosts sites, even I am beginning to think otherwise.

In the research I've found, believers of hauntings say that Orbs are believed to be ghosts in the form of balls of light. They are believed to be life forms that were once human souls or life forces of those who once lived in our world. Ghostly orbs are the most photographed anomalies caught on film by ghost hunters. Orbs can be produced by accident and can appear quite readily on film by the elements and conditions around you. Many orb photographs are merely the result of weather conditions such as rain and humidity. While it is true that any moisture in the air can affect the results, in addition to dust and airborne particles at the time of the flash, you can see in this series of birthday photographs that these are the result of something else. These pictures show how they don't always appear and they seem to occur regardless of light levels or locations (night, day, outside, inside). Are they really just reflections of light...or were the spirit of the children of Highland's past playing along with the girls at the party...
