Bishop Boo

Or I mass hurry. ( Okay so it’s not one of my better written icebreakers / jokes but if you say it out loud, it’s better. )

Cathedral-Ghost-598366

It was Kerry Launders first time in a cathedral anywhere when she and her family made the trip to Norwich Cathedral. She really enjoyed the visit and took a few snaps on her mobile but didn’t realize she’d captured anything but the architecture until she’d had a better look back home. That’s when she saw what appears to be a bishops hat and robes going along an upper level, though no one was there when the photo was being shot.

The 11th century building is allegedly haunted and there are somewhere around 12 bishops buried within the cathedral itself which makes the photo possibility all the more real. I for one am glad the ghostly spirit didn’t spoil her experience of the historic building and for her photobombing bishop.

The only question that arises in me is live or recorded. Being a religious man I am surprised to see an active haunting and that they haven’t passed beyond, though it could be imprinted and just repeating itself automatically at a specific energy or time. Perhaps he was naughty or doesn’t know he’s dead. Then again maybe he’s stuck around in hopes of continuing his religious duties. One way or the other it’s a great shot and history in all it’s quirky glory is amazing.

boo,

we’ll be back in a few
