Photos taken on the coast in Manzanillo, Mexico

I didnít know exactly where to send these photos and I was watching a program on the Travel channel and got your information.

I am a US citizen living in Manzanillo Mexico. I am a retired 56 year old business professional. My hobby is photography. Approximately September 2, 2006 I was photographing a beautiful rapidly changing sky. Two days later I was reviewing my photos on the computer to eliminate the undesirable ones when I noticed some rather interesting forms on the photos. Honestly, through the view finder on the camera, I never noticed anything as I was focused on the colors. None of the other photos have anything strange on them, eliminating the possibility that something was on the lens. I use a 10.0 excellent digital camera.

On one photo there are two distinct images. One looks cylindrical with a bump in the middle. It actually looks like smoke is propelling it. In the same photo, directly to the left is another object, quite a bit smaller, obviously at a further distance.

Another photo has a round bright dot which is amongst some dark clouds. To the far right you will see a drain pipe that comes from my building.

In the third photo there is an elongated "something" that is directly above the house in the photo. Proportionately, it is huge.

These were all taken within minutes of each other along with other photos of the area.

I will be emailing the photos to you.

((NUFORC Note: Witness indicates that the date of the sighting is approximate. We see nothing in the three photographs sent to our Center that is suggestive of a genuine UFO. Two photos are suggestive of birds caught in mid-flight, and under low light conditions. The third photo suggests part of an overhang on a nearby house, we believe. PD))
