This photo was taken during an investigation of  Bachelor's Grove cemetery near Chicago by the Ghost  Research Society (GRS). On August 10, 1991, several  members of of the GRS were at the cemetery, a small,  abandoned graveyard on the edge of the Rubio Woods  Forest Preserve, near the suburb of Midlothian,  Illinois. Reputed to be one of the most haunted  cemeteries in the US, Bachelor's Grove has been the  site of well over 100 different reports of strange  phenomena, including apparitions, unexplained sights  and sounds, and even glowing balls of light.  GRS member Mari Huff was taking black and white photos with a high-  speed infrared camera in an area where the group had experienced  some anomalies with their ghost-hunting equipment. The cemetery was  empty, except for the GRS members. When developed, this image  emerged: what looks like a lonely-looking young woman dressed in  white sitting on a tombstone. Parts of her body are partially  transparent and the style of the dress seems to be out of date.  Other ghosts reportedly seen in Bachelor's Grove include figures in  monks' clothes and the spirit of a glowing yellow man. 
A strange legend surrounds a railroad crossing just  south of San Antonio, Texas. The intersection of  roadway and railroad track, so the story goes, was  the site of a tragic accident in which several  school-aged children were killed - but their ghosts  linger at the spot and will push idled cars across  the tracks, even though the path is uphill.  The story may be just the stuff of urban legend, but the accounts  were intriguing enough that I wrote an article about the  phenomenon, "The Haunted Railroad Crossing." The article included a  photograph submitted by Andy and Debi Chesney. Their daughter and  some of her friends had recently been to the crossing to test the  legend, and she took some photographs. Inexplicably, a strange,  transparent figure turned up in one of the photos. "They had no  idea that it was in the picture until the next day when I printed  out the picture and showed them," said the Chesneys. "It was really  freaky. It appears to be a little girl carrying a teddy bear."  Other readers who have viewed the photo think it shows a little  girl with a dog sitting at her feet. What do you think? 
This photograph was taken in 1963 by Reverend K. F.  Lord at Newby Church in North Yorkshire, England. It  has been a controversial photo because it is just too  good. The shrouded face and the way it is looking  directly into the camera makes it look like it was  posed – a clever double exposure. Yet supposedly the  photo has been scrutinized by photo experts who say  the image is not the result of a double exposure.  The Reverend Lord has said of the photo that nothing was visible to  the naked eye when he took the snapshot of his altar. Yet when the  film was developed, standing there was this strange cowled figure.  The Newby Church was built in 1870 and, as far as anyone knows, did  not have a history of ghosts, hauntings or other peculiar  phenomena. Those why have carefully analyzed the proportions of the  objects in the photo calculated that the specter is about nine feet  tall!
While touring the historic House of the Seven Gables  in Salem, Massachusetts – the birthplace of American  author Nathaniel Hawthorne – Lisa B. snapped this  remarkable photo. The ghostly image of a small boy  seems to be in the shrubbery, peering over the wooden  fence.
The most amazing part of the story of this photograph is that she  subsequently did some research about Hawthorne and the house. While looking  through a library, she came across one of Hawthorne's books, Twenty Days with  Julian & Little Bunny by Papa. On the cover of that book is a portrait of  Hawthorne's five-year-old son, Julian. And as you'll see by clicking on the photo  at left, the portrait of little Julian bears a striking resemblance to the ghost  in Lisa's photograph.  You can read the full story of this photograph in the article, "The Ghost of the  Seven Gables”.
This interesting photo was taken sometime around the year 2000 in  Manila, Republic of the Philippines. According to The Ghost  Research Society, two girlfriends were out for a walk one warm  night. One of them entreated a passing stranger to photograph them  using her cell phone's camera (hence the low-resolution picture).  The result is shown here, with a transparent figure seeming to tug  on the girl's arm with a firm if friendly grip.  Without further information on this photo, we have to admit that the ghost could  have been added with image processing software. But if it's genuine and  untouched, it certainly qualifies as one of the best ghost photos.
