By just glancing at the photo, a tall man stands out wearing what seems to be modern sunglasses, a printed t-shirt, and he even seems to be holding a modern day camera. It is easy to see why so many speculate that this man is from the future, as he looks so distinctively different from those around him.
This photo went viral in 2010 after the photo was posted on digg.com and other sites. Hundreds of emails poured into the museum with messages such as “Why is there a time traveler in this photo?”, “One of your pictures has been tampered with”, and “I believe we have caught a time traveler ”
News stations from New Zealand, Brazil, and the USA all had segments covering the photo. A Russian news team even came to Bralorne, BC to investigate the photo’s origins. The crew found the original photo and even discovered a possible name to identify the Bralorne Time Traveler.
Several people are so enamored with the Bralorne Time Traveler that they have wanted to buy the rights to the photo to sell and make a fortune off of it. One man has even claimed to be the time traveler himself!
This photo is quite the phenomenon and is one of the most discussed time traveler stories in the world. So could this really be a time traveler caught on camera? Or perhaps it could just be that he was not dressed for the occasion?
Do you believe this man is a time traveler?
