My “ghost” photo of the Texas Governor’s Mansion has always bothered me. There was something odd about it, and I asked for comments.
There seemed to be something prophetic in the image, and I wasn’t sure what it was.
Well, I had some ideas, but I needed a good second opinion.
For me, the confirmation arrived in the form of headlines in the June 2008 newspapers.
Since it’s easy to say that something was a “premonition” after the fact, I’ve avoided saying that this photo predicted the fire that destroyed much of the Governor’s Mansion on June 8, 2008.
However, when I looked at the photo, I always saw fire. I was looking for someone else to confirm that.
This morning, someone commented about that possibility, in reference to the tragic June fire.
I’m not sure what to think about this. It’s not the first time I’ve had a premonition, and felt prompted to take a photo. However, this particular photo looked like a fire at the Governor’s Mansion in Austin, Texas, and I didn’t feel that it was an image from the past.
I don’t like predicting tragedy, especially when I have no information to support it, and nothing helpful to prevent what I “see.”
But, this is one of those photos that has troubled me, and it emphasizes the importance of saving all of the “odd” photos that you take, especially in haunted places.
As with this Austin, Texas photo, later events may reveal what the anomaly was.
It may not be a glimpse of the past, but a look ahead to the future.
For me, this concept is chilling.
Since this photo was posted online in March 2006, many people have had a chance to look at it. Take a second look. I’m not sure that was a visual premonition of the fire, but it’s certainly an odd photo.
