Right you are. It's interesting, there is another thread in this same section dealing with the phenomena of "orbs" caught on film, of which you provided a link to a website dealing with them...
IMO/E (in my opinion and experience), same effect. I can produce everything that I see on that site quite easily, and have, as I already mentioned.
Not saying there is not something paranormal going on (hey, there could be eh...), just saying I could reproduce the efx easily enough. Being an uber-animal lover, I esp. like the pic with the lil' pup amongst the "orbs."
However, I feel some folks at times look for the fantastical because they would like to really see the fantastical.
I'm not saying the (seemingly) fantastical does not exist or occur (depending on one's ability to perceive and/or comprehend it as such, this based on the expansion and awareness of one's own consciousness), but often, it can be explained with and by regular ol' PMR mechanics at work, or perhaps at play. :)
And for the record: I am not by any means some kind of card-carrying "debunker" of the so-called paranormal (relative term IMO/E). I am, as always, and as you, just forever an open-minded skeptic.
Ps. This forum seems to keep you busy eh. I don't know how ya find the time to answers all these great Qs from folks. Well done. :)
