Some ghost images:

Most are mine. It's not difficult when you take as many pictures for books as I do to occasionally pick up a ghost or two. I suppose it's as close to substantiating a specific ghost story as you can get. But it only happens one in a few hundred or thousand. I honestly believe you just have to be in the right place at the right time and maybe have a bit of a connection with that dead person...like having a bad week like they did or just enjoying being at that particular place like they did. Or just having a bad break-up or a million other feelings that connect folks emotionally. If you're looking to get that perfect ghost pic or just any ghost picture at all, my advice is to take a lot and everywhere. Eventually, you're going to match moods with someone dead. Hopefully, it's a nice spirit!
