The amazing photo you are about to see is a
matter of human record. You may believe it... or not. But the
real people, the people in the photo, THEY believe it. THEY know.
They took that "One Step Beyond."
On New Years Day 2015,
at a Christmas party hosted by my sister Cindi and my
brother-in-law Ken, my sister took this picture of my
daughter Kellie and her husband Steve.
Looking past Kellie and Steve, the older couple on the right
are my Uncle Tom and Aunt Helen. On the left, behind Kellie,
my cousin Jen is drinking a bottle of water. The guy behind
her in the plaid shirt is Mark. To the right of Mark is my
brother Chris and next to him is my sister-in-law Patti.
Patti faces another guy in a plaid shirt, but all you can
see is his shoulder. That's ME. I was THERE, man! The guy standing with his arms folded is my
At first glance, nothing seems unusual about this photo,
except that while I was looking at the various people in the picture I
initially thought John was standing in front of a cabinet. It's actually a hallway leading to the bedrooms and
bathroom. The horses aren't on top of a cabinet, they are
on the wall above the open doorway.
Then I noticed something very
strange. Can you see it?
for the music that must accompany
this while you're reading.
Wait for it...
Do you want to go back and look?
Look at the photo again. See anything weird?
There is no trickery. The photo hasn't been altered, except to be
Whose shadows are these?
The shadow on the right is not of John.
Even if the shadow behind John is
actually of John, the shadow on the left has no human
counterpart. And where is the glow coming from? Reflected
sunlight? Reflected from what? How can there be a shadow
above an opening to a hallway? How can there be a shadow
directly under a light in the ceiling? Notice the picture on
the wall has a shadow UNDER it from the ceiling light.
The kitchen is to the right
and there is a mirror on the wall, but the light isn't coming from
If it were, WHERE ARE THE PEOPLE WHOSE SHADOWS ARE ON THE WALL? Are
they in the kitchen? Why are the shadows so high, almost to the
ceiling? Why don't any of the people in the room cast a
The glow is not coming from the kitchen.
It extends to the kitchen wall, TOWARDS the kitchen.
The sunlight is coming
in through the front door.
There is no window or doorway to the left.
No one in
the room has a shadow, not even Kellie and Steve. Sunlight is shining
directly on them and they cast no shadow, yet
there are two large shadows on the wall of people who
apparently do not exist.
The identities of the people casting the
ghostly silhouettes, and the manner in which they were cast,
may forever be unknown. There is a
rational explanation for the two curious shadows. Can you unravel the mystery? Perhaps,
if you take One Step
The music you are listening
to is titled "Fear" by Harry Lubin. It was the theme music from the
1960s TV show "One Step Beyond."
Harry Lubin also composed the
theme music for "The Outer Limits."
