About this Photo
Stephanie writes, I have a real ghost photo for you to take a look at and share if you'd like. The photo was taken on a cell phone of a monitor screen to a security camera of a warehouse. Some people have a hard time finding the ghost; she is standing on the right side of the middle post, in a white dress. Here is the back story to the photo:

My dad is a car salesman for a car dealership here in Vallejo, CA. Tons of cars for sale are on display at the dealership but for the inventory that does not fit on site...they are stored in a nearby warehouse on Mare Island. Mare Island is a naval shipyard that dates back to the mid 1800's. Here, there are a variety of warehouses that are still in use as well as the creepy abandoned ones. It's quite a spooky place to be at night and people are known to go urban exploring, use the abandoned warehouses for photoshoots, and ghost hunting. I have hardly done any research on the ship yard...but if you google "Mare Island hauntings" you'll see that it is listed as a top 5 most haunted places in the Bay Area. There are even episodes on Youtube of ghost hunting shows that have gone to explore Mare Island.

Anyway, from time to time my dad has to go to the warehouse to pick up a car that somone has purchased. He is friendly with the security guards on site and they chat for a while everytime he stops by. The place is monitored 24/7. There is one security guard there that has the night shift and see tends to see him in the early mornings. He would always tell my dad about creepy things that happen there at night like flickering lights and loud bangs. Basically, the typical stories you hear from a graveyard shift securtiy guard.

One day, the warehouse upgraded their security cameras. Sitting around one night the security guard was testing out the new epquipment...moving camera angles around and playing back recorded footage. As he was looking at the different monitors he saw this image and froze. A white figure of a woman staring back at him. He paused it and took a picture of it on his cell phone and sent it to all of the guys that never believed his laughable stories. Let's just say they no longer make fun of him anymore :)

My dad showed me the image about a week after this happened. As far as I know, the recorded footage is long gone. As this was over 2 years ago now. I crindged at the thought of the actual VIDEO footage simply being lost. At least there is a legitamate photo that survived. I recently found my old iphone in my dresser and decided to charge it and go through the old photos..what a find.

Feel free to ask if you have any questions. Thanks for reading, Stephanie.

Jim's Reply, Hi, Thanks for sending along the cool ghost image from within that car warehouse in the bay area!
If true, it’s an extraordinary capture. My viewers however, would find it really hard to believe, unfortunately. Any chance this is simply a photo taken with a cell phone ghost app? The image you submitted is way too small to really see much detail. Do you have the full-size image?? Unfortunately, it’s really hard to do an analysis on such a small photo.  :/

I may post it on my forums and let the members there do a thorough analysis of it, that seems to be one of their specialties.  

Thank you for sharing!

Jim's Comments
I never give up on a ghost photo just because it looks too good to be true. So let's see how it goes.

Super enlarged for best view

This is the photo as it was received by me... very small.
I asked for the full-size photo if it's available.

Stephanie responded to my email at the same exact same moment that I posted the photo here on the forums.
Here's her reply.

---------------------------------

Hi there,

"No worries! I totally get it. I've posted this on my Instagram and it looks much better on a smaller screen.
The photo is authentic. Not the best quality because it was taken on an android. The guys that work there are just middle aged men with basic technology skills and don't even know of apps of that sort. Unfortunately this is the only photo I have ):

You can do what you'd like with the picture! I completely understand that it is a striking photo that most people won't believe to be real.
Just wanted to share with a community that would appreciate it!!"

Thanks!
Stephanie

We'll have to see if Lorac or anyone else can rule out a cell phone ghost app.

It doesn't look right at all.it seems to be staring directly at the camera,like it wanted to be seen.It also looks layered into the picture.

I agree with MrsFrootLoops... Looks too much like the famous ghost girl that has been seen in many photos.

I'm pretty sure it's an app called Ghost Photo Prank...

I tried to download the app but it wouldn't  work. I have the newest iPhone and iPad and that maybe the reason. If someone has an older iPad or iPhone and wants to download it and try it they can.

Best I can do.  You can see in both there it a place on the bottom of the dress in the same spot.
If I had the app I could adjust the transparency, size, etc..

I was going to say it was part of the post, since the other ones have white on then too. But as lorac has shown, it's a perfect match for the app...the hair and the little black area at the bottom of the dress. So someone is pulling the OP's leg

Well done, Lorac! ....I knew if anyone could figure this out, it would be you.  ;)

It looks like Stephanie and her dad were both fooled by a not-so-honest security guard.

Nice job Lorac! Compliments and respect!!!

This could be easily done also using layer opacity and layer masks in PS.

Glad I could help.
Thankfully, it seems as though less people use these apps. I guess the novelty has worn off for the most part.

I think now that the ghost apps are so prevalent, people are on to them now and not so easily fooled. Takes the fun out of using them.  :)

Good catch Lorac! I'm always even more skeptical than usual when people start off with "it's a REAL ghost photo!"
