Default Spirits in the baja desert

On October 25, 2009 I spent the night in the back of my truck with the tailgate and camper shell window open at Rancho El Metate San Juan De Dios in Baja California. At 3:00 AM I am suddenly awaken by something and for some reason had the thought to start taking pictures with my digital camera with flash in the pitch blackness. The following photographs depict the images on my camera. Please note that none of what you see here were visible to the naked eye. After each photograph I reviewed the photograph in the camera and could see what you see here. I have enhanced the photographs with Microsoft Office Picture Manager and only used the mid-tone adjustment slide to enhance them to the point they could be seen on the computer. Also note that as I was taking the pictures I was calling to Grandpa Santiago Espinoza to come over to my truck. The Larger image near my truck occurred when I told him to come closer. Grandpa Santiago was Mama Espinoza’s father-in-law and Heraclio Espinoza’s father. He was one of the biggest Ranchers in Baja California in the old days. I am not saying these things are spirits but they could be.

dust, bird. Ive even been to Gettysburg in a haunted house and stayed in a haunted bed and breakfast, seen no ghosts, heard no ghosts, just nothing. Even drove around the battlefield around midnight.

The last 2 are definitely Elvis,..despite the wings you can still tell that easily. The earlier pictures..2 at least I would think were Pepperoni's...sliced of course..a little on the thick side. What does that mean?...let's examine the others. They look like a cross between Salami and Summer Sausage. Hardly a coincidence I would think since Germany and Italy were allies in the WW2 period!!!!!! I've never seen anything like this!!!! Oh my God!!! The solution would be to catch them all using a butterfly net....and DESTROY THEM VIA MICROWAVE TECHNOLOGY!!!!!

I think that is cool, but if you want to see ghosts you should spend the night in one of my old houses. It is a remodeled plantation house from the late 1800's. It was just a little creepy.
