As a self-proclaimed scaredy-cat, I find it hard to understand how anyone could stick around when there's a ghost, let alone seek them out. Why would you want to put yourself in that kind of position?

While my fears have mostly been stoked by the horror movies I'd watch as a kid (against my parents wishes, obviously), in reality, most ghosts probably don't want to hurt you. Which is a really good thing when you think about the fact that most people have no idea when they've stumbled into the presence of a ghost.

The people who took these pictures weren't all looking for ghosts; in fact, most of them weren't looking for anything at all! And while they say that these photos are real, that's up to you to decide. I know what I believe!

Check the mirror. Do you see the uninvited guest?

"My friends Easter. This thing was not invited."

But look under the ladder. Do you see him? The person who uploaded this photo says that it was just him and the person taking the picture at home.

"My friend took this picture of his cousin in their new house. He says it was just the two of them there but that's not what it looks like."

There are only two women in this picture, but 3 faces

"This was taken two days ago. There are only two people in the house."

Late at night at an elementary school, this figure was spotted. Was it a ghost or a person? The security alarms weren't set off...

My friend was walking with a few friends and one of them said they saw someone in the school. Rather than approach (considering it was 10 pm) My friend just took a picture to show the police. An officer told her the building was vacant and the alarms were on. When my friend went back the figure wasn't there anymore.

While checking out houses for sale, they snapped this picture. I guess the house comes with a ghost as a bonus!

It's the screen on the window. You can see a similar, though muted, reflection/shape in the last window on the right...unless it's twin ghosts.

At first it doesn't seem like there's anything strange about this one. But look closer near the fence.

Ghost in San Diego Old Town cemetery about 10 pm just the wife and I were the only ones there......see it?

It looks like she wants to join in. Keep in mind, this one was taken by a friend. Who doesn't have a friend who loves a good prank?

My friend (a doctor) took this photo while with friends in a hospital in Bolivia. I don't believe in ghosts but this is one is hard to explain. Please analyse!
