“This is a genuine photo of a girl who is an Earthangel. You can see her wings and the photo has been verified. She used to babysit for one of FB friends – with Hunter Para Normal Australia, Chris Connor and Amanda Leach.”
Analyst’s note: This testimony is somewhat confusing. When J.R. West says “the photo has been verified” does she mean it has been analysed and found to be authentic, in so far as it has not been tampered with? Or, that what we are seeing has been proven to be what she terms an “Earth angel” through analytical technique? My assumption is that she is referring to the former explanation, as any self-respecting analyst could identify this image for what it truly is.
It is not distinguishable on the original image, but in negative the so-called “wings” are nothing of the sort. The left and right “wing”, as you can clearly see pointed out by the red lines, are in front of the subject and not behind her. They’re creating a shadow effect across her head and right shoulder.
The black, radial lines point out a faint circular formation within the right “wing”. This circular formation is, in fact, a snow droplet on the camera lens. The dark shadow emanating from it may well be due to melting or may be the result of a temperature variance between the glass lens and the droplet – a kind of fogging. As seen in the original image this fogging appears white due to the reflected light from the flash.
Compare these images with the one below.
They look remarkably similar, don’t they? That’s because the same natural processes that made this picture went into making the above.
I do not intend to labour the point on the “Angel Wings” image other than to say that there is nothing paranormal going on in the picture that can’t be accounted for in natural terms. I urge the reader to read my “Ghost Hug” blog, because the exact same principles that went to make up that image also apply here.
