18. The Time-Traveling Hipster

This photograph from 1941 was taken as South Fork Bridge in British Columbia, Canada was reopened. Not such a mysterious scene, you might think, but take a look at the man toward the right of the photo. With the guy sporting shades, a cool haircut and what looks like a modern-style T-shirt, it’s easy to see why he’s been called the “time-traveling hipster.”

17. Skeletor of Hampton Court

In the winter of 2003 at Hampton Court, England, security staff were given a freaky surprise when they went over some CCTV footage. They were called out to close a fire door, which for three days had been thrown open by an unknown force. On the second day, the security footage seemed to show this skeletal figure haunting the doorway. He was later dubbed Skeletor.

16. The Cooper Falling Body

When the Cooper family were snapped in their new home in Texas, there seemed to be an unexpected and highly disturbing photobomber in shot. It is said that, when developed, the photograph showed what appeared to be a human body, hanging or falling. Various reasons have been given for this – double exposure, negative enhancement, or a doll hanging in front of the camera – but the likeliest explanation seems to be some more recent Photoshoppery.
