xx Alien Photos..... ?
« Thread started on: Jan 26th, 2018, 10:11am »

I am surprised that nobody picked up on this story. A new book reveals an old ongoing case from Italy where it was claimed that photos of an Alien and the interior of their "spacecraft" were taken by a witness.

The case is one that I do not recall having heard before. The photos date from 1957. The quality of the photos is poor. But I agree with Phillip Mantle on this one: I see no reason to reject or accept this story. Maybe, maybe not. Kinda like the UFO thing in general, eh?

Those pictures don't float my boat. I've seen better quality out of an 1800's pinhole camera. rolleyes

I don't understand why anyone would give a benefit of a doubt or reserve judgement on these pictures or the story.

Now if it was taken by something like this I would be more inclined to believe.

This guy makes some neat pinhole cameras that produce good images. However, because of longer exposure times, this type of camera is more suited for still lifes. So I have to rethink the idea of using a pinhole camera to take better pictures of aliens and UFO's unless you can get them to sit still. Then again even the exposure limitations of these cameras could probably produce better images vs. the stuff often presented as evidence of those pesky unphotogenic aliens. grin

More cameras and their images here:

Yeah, bad photos. But then how many "good" photos have we seen of UFOs?

A hoax? Could be. But poor quality photos are not so unusual for the period. The most common type of camera throughout the 50s was the Kodak Brownie, which came in many different models.

By the 1950s the Brownie 127 became the most common model. It used 127 film (the same as used by "disposable" cameras from the 1960s on). This film produced small negatives, much smaller than those produced by earlier Brownie models. This means that image quality would have gone down, not up. This was compounded by the fact that the Brownie had a cheap non-focusable lens. It was a true "point and shoot" camera that could often produce mediocre photos.

Excuses? Yeah. Guilty.

But one of the things I find intriguing about the interior pics is the way that everything in the photo seems to be of one piece. This is exactly the way UFO interiors have been described by so many UFO witnesses over the years. Would this small detail have been common knowledge in 1957?

As far as setting up a hoaxed photo, this detail would have made the fabrication of the "scene" much more difficult. As a professional modeler, I have experience with this kind of thing. Go ahead kids, try this at home! Let me know how you get on with it. wink

Anyway, just my two cents. Like Zetar, I am an agnostic. When in question, agnosticism is the only intellectually tenable position to hold. It prevents you from jumping to premature conclusions one way of the other. Being certain about things is often a delusion. Hell, premature (or unsupported) certainty has worked for rational materialists for centuries.

Just sayin'.....

It was a one-eye, one horned, flying, purple people eater.
