Ghostly Orbs at DragonCon?

Judging from how diligently the gatekeepers checked badges at DragonCon event last weekend in Atlanta, it was clear they were cracking down on non-paying gate crashers. But perhaps there were some otherworldly visitors who came and went as they pleased....

Take a look at the following two photos of this awesome pair of dark angels. I took the first one with my camera, and my friend and roomie author Caridad Pineiro took the second with her camera a few seconds later. When we compared photos in our hotel room, Caridad pointed out the orbs of light that hovering above and around the couple in both our pictures. No other picture either of us took that night showed orbs floating around the subjects. Only the two photos of this particular couple.

Caridad had a similar experience at her daughter's quinceanera, which took place in a historic house that's purported to be haunted. Several guests taking pictures of Caridad's daughter recorded orbs floating around her.

So it wasn't the camera - more than one camera recorded the images. It wasn't something in the air all over - no other picture we took registered these orbs. See for yourself...

My Photo - note the two orbs, one large, one smaller, above the female angel's head. A third orb is to the left of the head of the gentleman in the blue standing behind them on the left.

Caridad Pineiro's Photo - Here the three orbs are hovering in front of the male angel's wings.

So...ghosts attending DragonCon? What do you think??

Oooh, spooky! Deb LeBlanc recently posted some ghostly photos, too. They're over at if you're looking for some Halloween chills.

Very interesting. Have no idea what they could be, but since they were on different cameras, you can eliminate dirt on the lens.
Have seen things in other pictures that can't be explained.
Makes you wonder. Maybe that paranormal world everyone is writing about isn't so far away or so imaginary.

When you think about microwaves and cell signals pinging unseen all around us, it does make you wonder what else is there just on the other side of our range of perception.

Cool Joy. Sounds like you had fun at Dragoncon!

I love their wings--one of the main reasons I like scifi/fantasy cons is the amazing costumes people come up with. I'm not good with wearing costumes myself (do it on the rare occassion, but it's not for me), but I love looking at other people's creations. Cos-play rocks.

DragonCon costumes were AWESOME! You can see lots more DCon creativity on my DragonCon Facebook album - including a Stormtrooper in a kilt (!)

Heh, I'm quite happy to have found this picture. That is I on the left, and Alan on the right. I'm amused that out of all your pictures, ours were the only ones with orbs in it. Maybe my protectors while I was pregnant? (If you can't tell, I was 6 months in :3) My email is if you'd like.
