Probably not the case here but a heavy internal door in my house will slam very loudly and close shut apparently by itself or bang repeatedly on the frame.Happens when the rear outside door (at the other end of the house) which is at 45 degrees to this one is open . It occurs when there is no wind- very spooky if you don't know what it is. The house is on a busy road and traffic flying past causes an air pressure rush up the driveway, through the back door through to the front room slamming the door.
I used to work in a large Edwardian theatre where the shift in air flow caused by opening and shutting the street door caused any open doors inside the backstage area to slam shut. Each door slammed slighty after the previous - in sequence - from the top of the building downwards. Most disconcerting if you'd done a late shift and were shutting up by yourself - as the banging rapidly approached you in the darkness.

I'm seeing an oldish balding man with a fag on & a mug of tea.
Stop it hunck...stoppit - we're terrified enough as it is.

Think of the children!! None of us will get a wink of sleep tonight.

(Damn - there goes another pair of underpants).

Its great to see that the person who took that 'ghostly' image adopted the paranormal investigator's maxim: "why settle for a rational explanation when a supernatural one will suffice?"

Because "Security guard spotted at window" doesn't get one a sensationalist spacefiller article in a dodgy tabloid. Wonder how much she got paid for the interview and footage?

I suppose this has been discussed before on this very long thread? But I rather feel that even if ghosts exist (which ok they might) then it's another thing entirely to expect them to be caught on camera. Then they'd have to have substance you could bounce photons off. And maybe they're not like that, maybe they're kind of hallucinations happening directly in a person's brain in response to Something Peculiar in the environment?? More like ESP. So that would discount every single photo ever taken. Which would be a shame. But it wouldn't surprise me when they're generally resolutely crap. (That ridiculous one with the holey sheet face at the altar though, I'll never get over that one).

Yup, my late father was a huge believer in ghosts/spirits but even he reckoned that they wouldn't photograph because, as you say, there's nothing for light to bounce off.

Yes but I believe that all ghosts aren’t the same thing. Like stone tape, spirits or indeed something projected from the brain. So maybe so photograph and others don’t.

I think the trouble is unless you took the picture yourself and 100% know the circumstances you’ll know it’s not fake. But no one else will they are all too easy to fake these days.

What has become popular in the last years is using Nintendo Kinect sensors together with a PC and a computer program which reveals invisible ghosts. I guess the program creates stick figures based on temperatures in the room.

An example:
Very interesting. I’m glad he’s taking a level headed approach to it.

As a counter-example, though, my former next-door-neighbour reported a strange experience to me whereby her son could see - and record - ghostly shapes on his phone screen while he filmed in a cellar, but neither of them could see anything with the naked eye...
