I don't have an explanation for the person in this photo. This was shot in the United Airlines terminal at O'Hare Airport in Chicago. It was shot handheld for about 1 second, which is why there's motion blur. There are no similar photos of people anywhere on that entire roll of film. I developed the film myself as part of a photography class project. I was a photo lab tutor for 3 years, so I knew how to properly develop a roll of film (though I never got very good at printing). You can see the face just as clearly in the negative.

Very good, i learned that "spirits and Ghosts" appear on films because they are a 2D or 2 dimentional figure, something the human naked eye cannot pickout, reason why camera's and film pick these things out, in this case by the looks of it, this chap could may have well have been a suicide victim on these railway lines, not put to rest yet, or something, very interesting image though !! well done :)
