I have to admit I don't know much about Shadow People but was reminded of them when I saw the above photo on Pinterest. Catherine G wrote about the photo: "The Parker family visited Gettysburg, Pennsylvania in the month of August 2010 and took this strange photo. They thought nothing of it until they heard the tale of Shadow People on a radio program."
But, as happens in life, I came across another photo said to be of a Shadow Person without really looking for it:
Very mysterious. So what are these Shadow People? Well, it seems nobody is really sure. The Paranormal Society write:
"Shadow People are not human entities. We don't believe they're ghosts. Don't believe they're demons either. But, on a scale, we'd say Shadow People lean more towards the negative side, especially given the bad feelings we get from the vibes they give off. It's suggested that they're presence means something bad, or that something bad will happen."
So that sounds none too pleasant. Wikipedia describes them thus:
"A shadow person, also known as a shadow figure, shadow being or black mass, is an alleged paranormal entity. Paranormal researcher Heidi Hollis has expressed the belief that shadow people are malevolent supernatural entities."
There is a thread on the subject on the abovetopsecret forum. One gentleman, Em2013, writes:
"I have seen hundreds of shadows with my wife, best friend, and a few others. They are hard to dismiss as a mere coincidence of the darkness, hallucinations caused by paranoia or group lies. Sometimes they come alone, sometimes they come in pairs or as a group. We've seen armies in Canada of these things before and I wish I were kidding as frightening as they are."
Another photo from Pinterest this time from geisterportal. He or she writes about Shadow People, "They have no purpose and don’t seem to be harbingers of any sort" and wonders if they are, "... :from another dimension."
