So, basically this is not my question, this is just a curiosity. I've just found out about this hotel and the suspicious paranormal activities and I thought before I become emotional and start making "what if" questions, I should probably ask here, considering my reactions and responses to such events i.e. religious/supernatural/paranormal are more than awful.
NOW TO THE TOPIC:
The Stanley Hotel is a renowned place. It's been around for more than a century now. It wasn't very popular, though, among tourists except for being known as a haunted hotel where the apparition of it's owner would be seen in the ballroom, the wife would be seen somewhere, noises would be heard, the sounds of kids running around and laughing would be heard, cluttering of plates and more like that.
The hotel rose to GREAT FAME when the famed horror author and novelist Stephen King one day chose to take a break from life with his wife and booked a room, Room 217, at such a time of winter when there was no one else in the hotel. All other rooms were unbooked.
Stephen King saw a dream in which a possessed fire hose was chasing his son. FYI, the kids were not with the couple at the time of this vacation.
King went nuts, almost fell of the bed and woke up in sweats. He took a cigarette, smoked it and by the time it ended, he had laid the foundation of his book, "The Shining".
AGAIN FAST FORWARD:
The movie is irrelevant to the paranormal activities because they were happening LONG BEFORE King even came. His presence just made another rumor that room 217 is even more haunted and it confirmed that the hotel was indeed fucked up, considering its history of paranormal sightings by the residents who booked rooms before.
YET AGAIN FAST FORWARD:
Many of the sightings at this hotel have been reported by those who lived there once. Some of these have been posted online.
Here's a particular one I'm interested in: https://www.huffingtonpost.com.au/entry/stanley-hotel-little-girl-ghost_...
However, what really caused me to ask this question is actually this paragraph on the article:
Ben Hansen, former FBI agent and host of “Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files,” said a careful analysis of the photo turned up no obvious signs of trickery.
“I really like this photo,” Hansen said. “Assuming that it’s not doctored, it ranks up there as one of the best photos of possible paranormal evidence I’ve seen. If it is faked, I’ve got to hand it to them for their level of detail and creativity because there’s usually enough easy signs to suggest hoaxing.”
So I'm wondering what do you guys think about this photo and Ben Hansen's comment? I don't know how reliable that guy is or his show because I had never heard of him before. Therefore, I'm really clueless as to how to react to this or approach to this ghost sighting in a photo.
