I found these photos very depressing to look at.

Default Bride adds dead brother to wedding photos

I was reminded of this thread when I read this story on the BBC website a few days ago: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-wiltshire-37119884

I'm not sure what to think about it.

In a way it's a good idea....but I think if she was going to put her brother in the wedding pictures then she should have put him properly there - as a clear image and not just a ghostly shadow.

What about all the country music songs about the dead girlfriend/wife/kid? There also was a bunch of dead girlfriends songs in the early years of rock. (For instance, the one where the car stalls on the train tracks and the stupid bimbo goes back for the guy's ring...)

Well, he wasn't literally there, so I think emotionally that would feel very fake.

But you can imagine your loved one there in spirit. Still watching over you after death. Being there in spirit. So I think these photos are a good way to play into that emotional need.

It was because photographers generally charged for each subject as well as each shot.
