If you’re anything like me, you’ll have a tendency to look over photos you’ve captured in the hours, days, weeks after you’ve taken them.

Personally, I’m a fan of glancing back at such moments often – after all, such photos are a visible window into the past that otherwise wouldn’t exist.

For one group of women, however, studying a pair of photos they took just seconds apart left them horrified when they noticed a detail that was more than just a bit chilling…

You’ve likely all seen your shares of photo mishaps before, when images either becomes strangely blurred, or the classic red-eye effect is in evidence, or something else occurs to ruin what would otherwise be a lovely keepsake from a moment in history. Heck, I’ve even seen pictures that are so distorted – for whatever reason – that the people in them don’t even look like people anymore.

Yet I don’t think I can lay claim to ever having seen something quite like this…

As per reports, a group of women on a bachelorette party in Argyll and Bute in Scotland, UK were so disturbed by what they saw in a pair of photos they had snapped, that they canceled what should have been a weekend of fun and games, instead opting to return home.

The celebrations in question were set to take place at a remote estate, and the party kicked off things by doing what pretty much any large group of friends would do: take a series of photos before things descended into chaos.

The first of their images shows the group smiling before a set of logs, a picturesque lake in the background.

Yet in the group’s purported second photo, taken just seconds after the first, a little boy appears to be poking his head above the logs.

Sounds creepy? Well, the tale is said to take an even weirder turn as the estate has a rather grim backstory that – in light of the photo – is impossible to ignore.

Reportedly, there was a film made in 1994 named The Blue Boy, about a young boy who drowned in Lock Eck. Screenwriter Paul Murton revealed that he had based the tale on a story he heard from a local hotelier.

“I was talking to the hotelier about it and he mentioned the Blue Boy,” Murton said.

“This, he said, was a young child who had been on holiday with his parents in the hotel and he had been sleepwalking during the night. He had strayed outside, fallen into the loch, and drowned.

“When they found his body it was blue with the cold. Hotel staff had noticed that things like cutlery and plates were often out of place for no apparent reason – perhaps more sinister than that was the fact that they sometimes found wet footprints upstairs in the corridor.”

Needless to say, the group of women were too unsettled to remain on their weekend, and packed up their things in short order.

The legitimacy of the photo with the little boy has been called into question online, though at the time of writing there’s been no official verdict given from the women present.
