Default Moore Family Sees 'Guardian Angel' In Photo

It's an interesting photo and story for sure. What do you guys think?

www.news9.com/story/24040049/moore-family-sees-guardian-angel-in-photo
Quote:
It looked like a regular picture of a little girl with a sparkler, but Scott McCabe saw the real firework immediately.

"I couldn't believe what I was seeing," said Scott McCabe.

McCabe's son, Nicolas, died in Plaza Towers Elementary when the tornado hit Moore on May 20.

"Nicolas loved the Fourth of July and he loved firecrackers," McCabe explained.

This past July 4th, Nicolas' cousin, Madison, had to play alone - at least that was what the family thought until a cell phone picture.

"My brother, when he saw it, he said the hair stood up on his neck," McCabe added.

When McCabe looked, he was blown away.

"I was in awe. It touched my heart," McCabe said. "It's obviously not Madison. It's obvious there are two people there or one person there and one spirit there."



McCabe said he sees two distinct figures in the photo with different skin tones and different facial features. He believes it is Nicolas behind Madison.

"I feel it, you know," McCabe said as he patted his heart. "I feel it that he's here."

Nicolas was buried in his red Plaza Towers T-shirt. McCabe said he can make out a red T-shirt on the figure behind Madison.

"They say they can't see the ugliness down here from up there, but I feel he's with me."

McCabe said he has numerous skeptics and several people have doubted what he sees, explaining that the picture is just a blurry image of a girl or too much motion for a cell phone to handle. He said none of that matters.

"They can say what they want. I believe. I believe he's watching over us," McCabe said.

Terrible story but that's just the way the filmed was exposed to the light source combined with the obvious motion.

People often simply see what they want to see...and if it brings them some kind of comfort then my opinion sure as hell doesn't matter.

But it was a cell phone picture, not a traditional camera....does that matter? I'm not sure, just asking.

I would normally agree but this photo doesn't convince me that it was motion blur or light source issues. Skin tone does not match, it actually seems to closely match the boys photo. Also, no trace of glasses; hair, eyebrows and face shape seem different too. While non of the facial features match, the motion blur from the sparklers maintain their color consistently throughout the photo. Also, a neckline is visible but there is no trace of the pink tank top. Instead, it looks like a black tshirt with arms visible to the sides of the girl.

Looks even less like an exposure error when you zoom in on the faces. Just my non-expert observation though. Don't know what think here.

The face is a different tone because the sparkler was closer to her at the beginning. The arms are just motion blur of her arms.

If you run it through facial recognition it's two different faces. Eye width, ear height/shape, nose width/height.

Definitely not the same person.
