November 27, 2010- Hi, Christopher Patrick Bryant here. I work as the Events and Catering Manager at The 1927 Lake Lure Inn and Spa, and decided to take some photos of the ice sculpture that had been purchased by the couple for the event. I snapped 7-10 images of the venue and the ice sculpture. I used an inexpensive point and shoot camera, and only turned the flash mechanism off for the photo, and did not adjust the aperture or shutter speed settings. I was not using a tripod, and the photo is very clear, minus a translucent figure standing to the left of the statue, resembling the age and height of a 9-12 year old boy.
I didn't notice the apparition that night looking through the photos, and posted the photo to facebook five days later, unknowing of the image that appeared in the photo. A friend commented that she could see a ghost, and sure enough, i could see a translucent image that appeared to be the figure of a ghost!
