Default Ghostly Portrait in Dive Mask. It's Real !

Hi Chums,
2 pics I took about 19 years ago with cheap underwater camera. I was photographing a ship wreck when the flash on the camera stopped working. I turned the camera to face me and took a pic. The flash worked again. Years later I was going through the prints and I saw this face in the corner of the mask, it's made up of condensation but looks like an old spanish sailor with goaty beard. there has absolutely no retouching etc done to this it it as it was but with the text added. What do you think.

Looks real to me. This is not so uncommon an occurrence.

Hi Sdromel,
Thanks for the links. It's funny, I'm a sceptic when I see these things but when it's my own spookey pic I'm excited. The Burnt iron face made me laugh butit's just the same as my condensation in the mask face. Ill have to send it off to that chap.
Cheers For that.
Mark

That's just insane! It almost looks like the pictures we see of Jesus.

Cheers Chums,
I been looking and looking but i cant see the dung beetle at all. It's not April the 1st is it ? Anyone feel lke putting a ring round the beetle feel free. I gota find it.
Robert, I'm not religious but like you say it does look like the pics we see of Jesus. It went in the local newspaper years ago and then I went on local radio about it, there was a lot of interest.
About a month after the newspaper story I got a letter from the IRS tax office wanting to know more, I binned it. 2 weeks later I got another, I binned it. 2 weeks later they were knocking on my door, I cant believe what happened. They told me names and telephone numbers that go in the paper is crossed referenced with there Tax information and something didn't tally. They thought i was working as a diver and it was not on my records.
I had to confirm it was just my hobby and not commercial, they did a full audit of my accounts. Think it's made me a bit Big Brother paranoid.

The image itself seems casual to me (not religious at all) but the Tax office story is terrifying.
