Reddit is a popular site for sharing and discussing

paranormal photos.

This bizarre and creep photo

was submitted to Reddit in 2016.

The Reddit user who upload the photo states

that it was taken by his girlfriend

during a trip to the Rocky Mountains in Colorado

using an iPhone.

What at first appears to be a completely normal photo

other the Reddit user's father

is actually much more disturbing on second glance.

A few feet behind the man in the foreground of the photo

there appears to be a young boy crouching in the grass.

His features are unclear

but he seems to be watching the person taking the photo,

staring directly into the lens.

The Reddit user who uploaded the photo insists

that there was no one else around

when the photo was taken.

Because of the solitary setting,

they certainly would've noticed

if a child had been wandering around.

The user's girlfriend stated

that she definitely didn't see the boy there

when she took the photo.

What's even creepier is that the user noticed

that the photo was actually an Apple Live photo,

so it captured some movement.

In the short burst you can actually see

the ghostly boy moving through the grass.

It looks as though it takes a few steps.

The user's father was so disturbed by the photo

that he returned to the location

and took comparison photos of the surrounding area

to try and make sense of it all.

You can see by the photo on the left

that the grass doesn't appear to be that long,

which means it's as though the figure is only half there,

walking through the relatively short grass.

So did this Reddit user

inadvertently capture a ghost on camera?

What could explain the figure's heightened movement

through the grass?

I'd love to get your opinions on this one

in the comments section below.

The two young women in this photo

were out for a night on the town

when they snapped this photo

posing with the chef of the restaurant

where they were dining.

Their happy faces indicate that they had no idea

that a fourth figure apparently decided to photo-bomb them.

In between the chef and the girl in the green shirt

there appears to be the blurry face

of a ghostly photo-bomber.

The features on the ghost's face are not entirely clear

but the one thing that we can clearly see

are its large dark eyes

that appear almost as voids in the spirit's face.

The head seems to trial off

and it doesn't appear to be attached to a body.

Who could this terrifying spirit be?

(soft tense music)

There are certain types of ghosts

that are appear regularly in paranormal photos.

The apparent consistency in these manifestations

is something even the most hardened skeptics

have a difficult time explaining.

One type of spirit that has made appearances

all over the world is the White Lady.

These spirits manifest as a mysterious woman

wearing all white.

They often appear melancholy

and come with tragic backstories.

This photo of a woman in white

was taken in Cramer, Pennsylvania, in 1977

outside of a home undergoing construction work.

In the photo, we can see a tall, slender figure

in a baggy hooded garment walking past the house.

According to the worker who snapped the photo,

he was surprised to see the figure,

as all of the other workmen working on the job

were accounted for in the photo.

He was unable to explain who or what

the figure in the photo was.

Many skeptics dismissed this photo

as merely some sheeting draped over one of the ladders.

However, believers point to the fact

that the sheet seems to be hovering in mid air

and that the photographer insists

that there was no such shape in the foreground

when the photo was taken.

(soft tense music)

All hospitals are a common location

for ghost hunters to ply their trade.

In the days of old, it wasn't unusual for hospitals

to mistreat their patients,

and it's alleged that the spirits of these poor souls

sometimes stayed behind

because of the pain they experienced in life.

Old asylums are haunting places,

as treatments for mental disorders

were particularly barbaric in past centuries.

A group of paranormal investigators

called Utah Ghost Investigation

visited the old Fort Douglas Hospital in Salt Lake City

to search for evidence of ghostly residents.

They were hoping to capture some haunting paranormal photos

and were able to snap this image

on the third floor of the hospital.

This floor served as the hospital's asylum

for mentally ill patients

when the hospital was still in operation.

This could explain why the spirit in the image

appears to have its arms crossed across its chest.

It's most likely wearing a straitjacket.

The fact that this spirit is manifesting

wearing such a device

could indicate that it's a tortured soul

that received less than stellar treatment at the facility

during life.

Either way, its eerie appearance

in the shadows of the hospital is certainly chilling.

Family dinners are not usually occasions

for paranormal photos.

When this family snapped a photo

while seated around the dinner table,

they had no idea they were sharing the table

with an uninvited guest.

In the foreground of the photo

we can see three family members

seated around the small dinner table.

The chair closest to the camera is clearly empty.

However, just behind the dinners

there's a large window where we can see

a reflection of the dinner table.

In the reflection, the fourth chair is not empty.

Instead, a terrifying figure with a pale face and dark hair

is seated at the table.

The family has no idea who the spirit could be,

but its appearance is certainly terrifying.

(soft tense music)

It shouldn't be surprising that cemeteries

are another common spot for ghost hunters

to capture paranormal photos.

Graveyards are among the most haunted places on the planet.

It seems that even in death some spirits maintain

an attachment to their earthly remains,

choosing to linger close to the spots

where their bodies rest.

When the couple who snapped this photo

went to their local graveyard with their cameras,

they weren't expecting to return home

with any paranormal photos.

They went to the cemetery merely intending

to practice taking photos in the dimmed twilight.

However, when they returned home to review their photos,

they were surprised to spot a mysterious figure

lurking in the background.

The apparition appears to be leaning casually against a tree

on the other side of the group of tombstones.

The couple who took the photo

were unsure if anyone else was around

when they took the photo,

but a dark graveyard would be an unusual place

for a nighttime stroll.

Unless of course you're a ghost.

Claire Cal, a paranormal investigator,

visited 30 East Drive in Pontefract, West Yorkshire,

hoping to capture paranormal photos

demonstrating the hauntings in the houses.

This particular home is known

as one of the most haunted houses in the United Kingdom.

In fact, this particular house is believed

to be the haunting ground

for the most violent poltergeist in the UK,

and it's this spirit that Claire believes

she's captured on film.

The Black Monk of Pontefract

terrorized a family who lived in the home.

Members of the family were regularly slapped and shoved

and experienced other paranormal activity.

Several people saw the apparition

that they believed was responsible:

a monk in flowing black robes.

Researchers discovered

that there used to be a monastery nearby

and that one monk was hanged there for heinous crimes.

Many believe that this man of the cloth

could very well be the Black Monk.

In Claire's photo there appears to be a arm

clad in dark, flowing sleeves reaching into the frame.

There also appears to be a black mist

emanating from the figure.

This is consistent with other accounts

of Pontefract's most infamous spirit.

(soft tense music)

With the advent of camera phones

it's never been easier for amateur ghost hunters

to capture unusual photos

when they encounter creepy apparitions.

In many cases, people aren't even looking for ghosts

when they pull out their phones and capture evidence

of the nearby haunting.

In the case of this photo,

an employee at an assisted living facility

saw something strange and quickly took a photo as evidence.

Facilities as such as Kith Haven Assisted Living

in Flint, Michigan, are no strangers to death.

In places meant to care

for elderly people in their final days,

losing patients is to be expected.

However, spotting a semi-transparent figure in a wheelchair

is probably not part of a normal day of work.

The employee who took the photo stated

that she saw the ghost,

which appears to be a man in white shirt,

while working in the facility's basement.

She was startled by the apparition

and quickly captured the photo.

The worker was unable to explain what she saw,

but the spirit is most likely that of a former resident

who still lingers in the place where he spent his last days.

(soft tense music)

The loss of a young child is always a tragedy.

This makes photos depicting the spirits of children

even more eerie than those taken of the spirits of adults.

This particular photo was taken in a cemetery

near the burial plot of a family who lost a child

and made sure the child's spirit

lingering near the grave site.

The photo, taken in a graveyard in California,

shows mysterious beams of light

shining down on one of the graves.

If you look closely at the light,

there appears to be the figure of a young girl

standing near one of the graves.

Many believe that the photo depicts

the spirit of the child buried nearby

and that the light shining down

suggests a light from heaven,

allowing her spirit to appear on the earthly plane.

Paranormal photos don't have to contain the entire ghost

to be terrifying.

In this case, just one hand is enough to create

a truly frightening photo.

In this image we see a man and a boy

posing for a photo in a cemetery.

On first glance, there doesn't appear to be

anything out the ordinary in the photo.

However, a closer look shows an unexplained hand

tightly gripping the man's shoulder.

There's clearly no one else in the photo

besides the man and the boy,

so where could this ghostly hand have come from?

The fingers of the hand appear to be digging

into the man's shoulder,

so he most likely would've felt the hand

if another person had walked by

and decided to pop into the photo.

Like many of the spirits that appear in graveyards,

the identity of this apparition remains a mystery.
