The Powers of Medusa's Head

When the blood dripped from Medusa’s head onto the plains of Libya, each drop of blood transformed into venomous serpents. The power of Medusa’s head is seen again when Perseus encountered the Titan Atlas. When Perseus asked Atlas for a place to rest for a short while, his request was refused. Knowing that he would not be able to defeat the Titan with brute force alone, he took out Medusa’s head, and Atlas was turned into a mountain.

Ghost Pictures

The Angels & Ghosts website has a great collection of ghost pictures. I really enjoyed browsing through its Famous Ghost Pictures and Photos gallery. Here were some of my favourites:

Closed circuit security cameras at Hampton Court Palace in London, England, caught this supposedly real famous picture of a ghostly figure in period dress back in 2003.

Hampton Court Palace was built in 1525. Stunned employees at Henry the VIII’s grand castle do not know where this spectre came from or who or what it was.

Security personnel checked the closed circuit TV (CCTV) footage, allegedly, to find out who kept leaving one of the palace’s fire doors open. They were said to be shocked to find a ghost or apparition on the footage.
Notice her odd lean and absence of legs.
A legless woman in black was photographed in 1989 at the Covent Garden Piazza in London by Mr. Webb. Mrs. Webb is to the right with stroller, and the two children are theirs.
During the time the picture was taken, neither Mr. or Mrs. Webb saw anyone move into their way, ruining the moment they were capturing on film.
Dying Man Ghost Picture
This famous and very old ghost picture was taken in 1907 and supposedly shows a dying woman. The gentleman who photographed the deathbed scene was the lady’s husband, Dr. Baraduc of France. During the deathbed scene, the anomalies in the photo were thought to be proof of the human spirit.
