Ok. This may sound weird, and I am very creeped out by this.

A couple of Saturday's ago, my girlfriend and I went out to a Halloween bash sort of thing. Come back to her house, get ready for bed, etc, etc. She had a disposable camera which she had been using all night, and it had maybe 5 pictures left on it.

Fast forward to tonight. She had the pictures developed earlier today, and I got to looking at them when I got off of work. She handed me the packet, and told me everything came out fine, except for a couple towards the end.

The first one is of me sleeping. Like a shot from her side of the bed, maybe level with me laying down. It's of my upper body and my face. I tell her, "no big deal, you took a picture of me sleeping." She tells me to go to the next picture. I then realize I'm looking at a picture of her sleeping as well. This shot however, was taken more closeup. As in, maybe 10-12 inches away from her face. Both were taken sequentially.

I think, and think. How is this possible? No one else was home, just her and I. I think I would remember a picture with flash being taken of me, and I have no clue why she didn't wake up if a flash photo was taken of her from literally point blank. All my friends say "ooh, it's a ghost". But then, how do ghost use disposable cameras? They surely can't be proficient enough to wind the thingy to the next picture? Otherwise, no-one else could have snuck into the house. They have all doors locked, security on...etc. Doors chime when opened/closed. And if so..who the **** would go straight to the basement (Where her room is) and take a picture of two people and leave, untraced?

I don't know. This is by far, the craziest thing to happen to me.

Any ideas?

Actually, I was sober as could be that night. We're both broke as ****, so we didn't drink much. As a matter of fact, I think I had one beer all night. She had maybe 2 mixed drinks (clubs charge 9 bucks for mixed drinks!! Thieves!!)

And as far as brothers or sisters..she has one who is married and lives in New York. I doubt her 27 year old sister would fly out to Chicago to take creepy pictures of us.

I slept with one eye open last night! I'm still a bit freaked out!!

Your GF is messing with your head. She took the one of herself, herself, and is trying to pass it off as a mystery and freak you out.

It appears to be working....

I think that seems to be the only logical explanation.

There is a glimpse of me in the picture of her.

I confronted her about it, and she denies everything. So the only possible explanation?....

... The people under the stairs. Yep.

eh, she could have had someone else take it, too. She's DEFINITELY playing a prank on you. I mean, it was Halloween. Come on.

sounds like your g/f has a pretty good sense of humor... If it were me, I'd just let it go and keep making references to the "ghost in the basement" and/or start doing things like saying "What was that?!" while you're hanging out down there with her. If you do it right, you can turn it around and maybe freak her out a little (in a good way!) OR at least she'll finally confess, exasperated "I did it! There's no ghost!!!"

lol... but that's just me.

Haha. I woudln't lie. There really are pictures.

But at this point, my logic tells me that it had to be her. I mean..come on..has there ever been a ghost story where someone said "it took pictures of us with a disposable camera!"..No! So I think it was her. Had to be. Better be
