Thread: Strange picture from my phone...

  1. #1

    Strange picture from my phone...

    I have no idea how this picture was taken. Okay, you may think I'm strange, but I keep my cameras covered. Covered with blue tape. I will post a picture of what my phone takes when the camera is covered. I took a picture of the new Unicorn cereal at Target to show my daughter. When I went to send the picture, this picture was taken since the cereal picture. I went from Target to the bus and noticed this picture. Since I took the cereal picture and immediately covered the camera, there is no way I took the picture. Does anybody have a clue as to what it might be? I have no flash on my phone, just the camera.

    This is what a picture of the tape looks like. So an accidental picture would look like this...

    Cool mystery

    My guess would be a multi exposure image of the air-vent by your feet while sitting on the bus.

    The camera was covered while I was on the bus. And there are no vents like that on the bus.

    To me, it looks like you maybe snapped a pic of Target's ceiling. I think it looks like fluorescent light fixtures. My guess is that you snapped it off while you were putting the tape back on. No flash plus moving the camera could cause that type of blur.

    Possibly while putting the tape back in place?

    When I go back I'll take a picture of the ceiling to compare.

    Cool! Years ago I used to work in a photo lab, so I feel like I've seen (and been asked by customers to explain) every type of weird image. Doesn't mean I'm right, but it does look a lot like a ceiling shot to me.
