  1. Hi Chris, I think it might be more productive for you to study the three horizontal shadow lines which cross the vertical stair post. These are supposedly the shadows of telegraph wires alongside the house. Assuming that the lines truly show these, how come they move so much down the post,  in the short time that Marina allegedly took the photos. 

    The highest three lines are in C1333A showing that it must have been taken earlier than the rest, when the sun was higher in the sky. Try to calculate how much distance there is between the three lots of shadows and see how much time there must have been for them to have moved that far. Also compare Oswald's shadow in all three compared to where the sun would have been to have caused the shadows of the power lines. 

    I believe this could be these shadow lines could blow the theory that the photos are genuine.

    Just a thought.


    Keep up the good work.

      Hi Ray, I have done a study of those shadows and found some surprises. First it is not the lines that run down the West side of the ally. The angle of the Sun from 3pm to 430pm shows the shadow would have to have been made by lines that are way down the ally. 75 feet from Oswald. The elevation of the sun shows that a 40 foot pole casts a shadow 26 feet long, so it cannot be a shadow of those lines. Very confusing till I found an old photo showing lines that ran right next to the house on the same side of the ally. Those lines were on an approx 30 foot pole with no crossbar. It ran to the backyard of the house behind Oswald. The angle and shadow length match  so I assume they must be the lines shadowed in the photo. I also was wondering why those shadows move faster than all the other. The reason is it is the longest shadow. I took the distance of the shadow times 2 time 3.14 and divided the result by 360. It turns out the shadow should move about 4 inches per degree and the elevation changed by 1.6 degrees every ten minutes. So the shadows moved about 6 inches up the 2x4 pole which represents about 7 minutes between the 1st and last photo. So it seems to make sense that the shadows move as they do, and why the other shadows do not move. The total change of elevation is about one degree or less so we might not be able to see it. 
       Still I think the backyard photo's may be faked. Even the head being pasted into the photo may be true even if they got the nose shadow right. I am looking at Oswald's lean now. I found a way to test the stance without having to duplicate the entire posture. It seems so far that the only way to duplicate it is to turn the right knee and foot way out and also be able to hyperextend the knee to get that weird 10 degree angle of the right femur as it angles out from the lower leg. Oswalds right foot is at about an 18 degree angle and I carefully measured the hip angle and he is almost straight forward. The hips are at about a 6 degree angle from the camera. I think it may be impossible to keep those two parameters and still lean so far, still testing it with my nephew who can hyper extend his kneeThat is why i posted recently asking about Oswald maybe having a minor case of knock knee. I did a video on it(below), you may have already seen it from my post a few weeks ago
         The final bit of weirdness I am looking at right now is the Sun's reflection of the tip of his left shoe. It is actually slightly to the right of center and the Sun is to the left. That is truly interesting, we will see.

    A question to David Lifton

    Francois, what is you take on the conversation between Valerie Giscard D'Estaing and Gerald Ford? " On the evening of May 19, 1976, President Valery Giscard d’Estaing of France visited President Gerald Ford in Washington. Giscard, a calculating centrist, had come for a state visit. Ford, the former Michigan congressman, had succeeded the disgraced Richard Nixon. Both men were new to their high offices. In the limousine ride to the state banquet at George Washington’s home in Mount Vernon, Giscard asked Ford about a sensitive issue: the assassination of President John F. Kennedy 13 years before. ‘Here is an indiscrete question, Giscard said, “You were with the Warren Commission. What was your take?’ Ford, the Republican leader in the House of Representatives in 1963, served on the Warren Commission, which investigated Kennedy;s assassination and concluded there was no conspiracy. Former French president Valery Giscard D’Estaing Publicly, Ford defended the lone gunman finding. Privately, he offered a different opinion, according to Giscard. ‘It is not satisfactory,” Ford replied according to Giscard. “We first concluded that it was not an isolated crime, it was something organized. We were sure that it was organized. But we were unable to find out by who it was organized’ Giscard told the same story to Le Parisienmagazine in 2013. He said Ford told him, “We came to the conclusion that this assassination had been prepared. There was a conspiracy. But we were not able to identify which organization had sponsored it. ”

    Very poor taste by the French.

    Strange that nobody has mentioned "Mash", an absolutely brilliant humorous take on the Korean conflict, with contrasting humour and tragedy.

    To the unbiased mind, the SBt is the least plausible solution To those who are somewhat knowledgable about physics, ballistics and anatomy, the SBT is nothing short of a miracle. And if those same people who are physics savvy, also happen to know a few facts about the incident and its aftermath, the SBT is totally impossible.

    Precisely, Cliff. The trouble is DVP doesn't seem to understand the corner he painted himself into.

    Apparently according to an email from Bernard, it contravened copyright rules.
  8. If you could post exactly which three photos you are talking about, I might be able to discuss them with you. If you think anybody in Altgens 6 is wearing a mask, I'm afraid to say you might be losing it.

    And me now, Steve. It looks like somebody objected.

    How can it be "perfect' when the coat and shirt aren't bunched up, if the pointer is at the hole in the jacket?

    If the coat and shirt weren't bunched up, then according to your arguments, the rod couldn't line up they way you say it does. You want it both ways David. Your "perfect alignment" is only in your mind.

    Quote from DVP. " MR. SHANEYFELT -- "The rod passed through a position on the back of the stand-in for the President at a point approximating that of the entrance wound, exited along about the knot of the tie or the button of the coat or button of the shirt, and the end of the rod was inserted in the entrance hole on the back of Governor Connally's coat which was being worn by the stand-in for Governor Connally." Did Shaneyfelt ensure that the coat and the shirt were bunched up, as DVP insists happened, ?

    Since when did a bullet travelling at high speed, make a slit in in the fabric of a shirt rather than a hole. Sorry, David, but it just din't happen. It ain't no bullet hole in the shirt, it is a cut.
  14. As the sun moves 15 ˚ every hour, (360/24), that means that in 2 minutes it will have moved only 0.5˚ (15˚/30) in two minutes. Hardly a significant change in the shadow.
  15. John in order to work out the angle of the people in the street, we would've to have fixed point with from which to calculate. At that time, 12.30 p.m. the angle of the sun's azimuth was 185.22 or 4.78˚ degrees west of South.

    Yes, Thanks, Douglas. Great site for people who haven't been able to access these books.

    So you believe that in 903, the pointer that Specter is holding is placed at the neck, David?

    Seems to me the David gave you all the necessary information. What else do you want, Fred?
  19. Hi Jim, A guy on the JFK assassination Forum would like to get in touch with you, If you like I'll let him know how to contact you, if you so wish.


    " On another point I have been trying to find a way to find a contact for Jim Hargrove I found two old emails that didn't work Now I have sent a message to Debra Conway at the JFK Lancer Facebook page I am mostly curious about any DNA project

      I dunno Ray.  My email address has been at the very end of the HarveyandLee.net home page since 1998.  How much attention can this fellow be paying?

    Who changed the motorcade route?

    It ill becomes somebody who criticises another poster for using bad grammar, to then mix tenses in his own post. "Secondly, if you had read his book, you will see...." and "Your verbal masturbation in the last post was long-winded and easily refuted. " is a totally over the top insult.
  22. I remember watching the film some years ago. Left me with so much sadness. And I'm not American.
