I just finished reading Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger, which made me stop and realize that ghosts are everywhere in the media. Movies, books, television, music. They all have wonderful examples of ghosts, whether real or fictional.
On a fictional basis, who are your favorite movie/tv/book ghosts?
My choices are:
Movie: The Ghost and Mrs. Muir
Television: Casper the Friendly Ghost
Book: Midnight Champagne by A. Manette Ansay
What are some of yours?
A businessman who was inspecting a run-down castle in England for a possible purchase captured more than just images while taking photos. One photo reveals a young woman looking out the window. You may think that it was just someone standing near the window, but there is currently no floor beside that window, which would make it very hard for a woman to look out that particular window!
This story reminded me of the story from last year where another ghostly apparition was captured on film during a family visit to Tantillon Castle in Scotland. Experts seem to be baffled with this case.
Have you ever captured anything mysterious with your camera?

I'm leaving on a jet plane tonight that is headed for London. I'll be spending a week roaming the streets and soaking in everything the city has to offer. As I was planning my trip, I noticed there were a lot of haunted tours that one can take while in London. Pubs, hotels, theaters, sites, you name it. But let's face it, in a city that old and full of life, there's definitely a lot of ghosts wandering around.
One of my "must see" destinations is the Tower of London. Anne Boleyn is said to still be roaming the place where she spent her final days. I want to go see the place for its history and to see the crown jewels, but my senses will be on high alert to see if I can sense anything
