The Photograph

The photo shows Doris sitting on a bed, with some sort of energy or presence blurred around her. This energy has sometimes been described as a kind of mist or ectoplasm.

The photo sparked a great debate in the field of the paranormal. Some believe it to be tangible proof of the existence of paranormal phenomena. Others argue that the visible energy in the photo could represent a spiritual presence or a manifestation of psychic energy.
