Over the past few years I have viewed many photos taken with orbs in them. Not just orbs but mists that have some degree of shape to them. I find this phenomenom very interesting. Yes, I know that science can probably explain away most of it as issues with film and development etc. or that digital cameras have one issue or another, but I am interested in your experiances with this phenomenom and do you believe that it is a photo of a spirit?
I was interviewing a Civil War re-enactor for an article and one anecdote he had was when his regiment was camping at an old fort. One guy started taking pics of everyone when after awhile he called everybody over to have a look at something. Turns out numerous orbs were showing up around one fellow. He told them to go on back to moving around and sure enough the ubiquitous orbs still showed up in that guy's pics and no one else. Seems there was a Civil War soldiers' cemetery next to their campsite too.
I recently took a series of photos for a hub, but several of them had orbs in them. Really ticked me off because I had to go ahead and use a couple of them - they were important to the hub and I had nothing else to use.
Next time I'll make sure to clean the camera lens after setting it down on a dirty counter.
The first photo is of a well known "haunted" orphanage using a digital camera while the second is the same orphanage at the very same time using a high quality Pentax SLR.
It would seem that there was dust that was kicked up on your first photo.

What do you believe produces orb effects in digitally produced photographs?
