OTHER INTERESTING PICTURES
(these are posted here from the newest to the oldest in order they were received)
Here featured are just a collection that we have all found to be very interesting pictures. Whether they are our own, from years ago or even more that have been sent to us. We hope that you only enjoy them as much as we did also and felt that they deserved space on our site here.
First off here this is a picture of my great grandparents home that was ironically right across the street from The RIPS HQ . This picture I have absolutely no clue or idea as to how my parents obtained it, but interestingly enough this picture here features one of my great aunts and also my great grandmother that I never got the privledge to meet.
History goes that my dads oldest and only sister watched The RIPS HQ here being built. But, more so is what is in the pictures here though that follow?? ..........lol!!!
These following pictures were sent to us by my good friend John who is a PI in Tennessee. These were taken last summer at Pinney Flatts Tennessee at the Cobb Museum site.
Here are some pictures taken by my friend Rich of Streator and recently sent here to The RIPS. Rich said that they were fascinated by how the moon appeared on this particular night with the ring around it. The first picture taken was shot standing up which you can see here is normal.
Here are some interesting pictures sent to us from my friend Meg from California. In the first picture there appears this strange fog or haze by her garage.
Here is a very interesting picture sent to us from Brandi of Streator, IL. When talking to her regarding this picture she informed me of the following, "anyway about the photo. it was at night in july of 2005 after my youngest son was born. my oldest son was just snapping pictures while i was getting some fresh air. it was clear--no rain or fog but the humidity may have been up since it was july. i dont have any before or after pics"
The following pictures were submitted to us by Dawn of Streator. Her explaination of this first one was a typical family outing taken in the Spring of 2000 at Washington Park in Ottawa, IL. The family posed for several group pictures and this is one that she found quite interesting.... and we certainly do agree here.
These pictures were also submitted by Dawn of Streator. While visiting departed relatives she shot this picture at St.Vincent Cemetery in LaSalle. This was taken earlier there this month, October, 2007.
More of Meg's pictures here that she recently sent to us from California. These were also shot in her backyard right before Halloween, nice bright orb here and several smaller ones in the background.
Here are some interesting orb pics recently sent to us from Nicole of Streator, Illinois. Here is what Nicole said about these pictures " I went to your rips site and was amazed I have always been taught that orbs in pictures meant you were being watched over and these pics made me believe that actually. They were taken in downtown Chicago the day after Thanksgiving about 20 minutes before they lit the tree "
These were shot on vacation by RIPS investigator Tina. This is at a bible study camp that they all go to on a yearly basis, but Tina told us that she has never gotten any pictures such as these before. Great orbs here.
Here are some interesting light anomolies that were taken by me in the kitchen at our local National Guard Armory during one of our annual Streator Hobby Shows. And, yes these were also shot with 35m film. I do remember showing these to my dad who was still alive with us here at the time......... and his comment was ................... "hmm, I don't know about you Kay..... but things that do happen to you never cease to amaze me why though."
My father was a professional photographer, and a damn good one too if I may be so boasteful here......... and everytime that we went out on any investigation he would wait for us to come back here to The RIPS HQ and help us try to analyze them, of course more so with the pictures taken with 35 m film.
That man was our biggest fan........ God I miss him as do all of the family members of The RIPS that got the privledge of knowing him for the great man that he was.
Breathe deep the gathering gloom
Watch lights fade from every room
Bedsetter people look back and lament
Another day's useless energy's spent
Impassioned lovers wrestle as one
Lonely man cries for love and has none
New mother picks up and suckles her son
Senior citizens wish they were young
Cold-hearted orb that rules the night
Removes the colors from our sight
Red is grey and yellow white
But we decide which is right..................
And which is an illusion
