We received an e-mail of a picture taken in Ireland the photographer never noticed anything strange about the photo until scrutiny showed what appeared to be two small figures in the dry stream bed hence the close up. there is also an unusual black object as well

Any ideas my best guess is a simulacra?

One more thing the black object was not in a previous photo taken moments before.

Do you have that previous photo so we can see it? Other photos taken at the same time are often helpful in deciding what someing weird is.

Re: strange image

here are two better scans that were sent through - the original was a 35 m film, this new picture clearly shows the black object as a reflection in the water. The second picture was the first image taken.

So it is just a reflection in the river then.

Looks like it. Possibly of a tree on the bank. Just shows how useful a second photo taken at the time is!

Re: strange image

I would guess that the two figures are a simulacra, made up from dead grass that can be seen on the other side of the river in the second photo. The light shining through the trees has made it stand out.
