Creepiest Ghost Photos Ever: The Pink Lady of Greencastle

6

We're now down to the last two installments for the Creepiest Ghost Photos Ever series. Today, let's take a look at a set of photos taken in the O'Hare Mansion in Greencastle, Indiana, showing the ghost that became known as the Pink Lady of Greencastle.

Photo via The P.I.R.G.

The photo above was taken by Guy Winters during a paranormal investigation in O’Hare Mansion in Greencastle, Indiana. It came to be called “The Pink Lady of Greencastle,” owing its name to the ghostly figure of a lady seemingly lit by a pinkish glow.

A friend told Winters that he and his girlfriend had a scary encounter with a ghostly entity during an attempt to have a tryst in the abandoned property. So, Winters, along with another friend Terry and a team of paranormal investigators, explored the O’Hare Mansion upon being granted permission by the property’s owner.

Armed with VHS video cameras and simple flash cameras, Winters and his group began documenting their search for several days. Finally, the group began to feel something spooky during one of their night visits. While some of his companions covered the interior of the ruined mansion, Winters started taking photos of the windows and doorways outside. He did not recall seeing anything, but when the film was developed, there it was: the vapory but also visible figure of a lady staring out from one of the windows. She is believed to be the ghost of Irene O’Hare.

The fourth frame on the lower right shows a screenshot from the analysis done on one of the photos snapped by Winters, showing something distinctly skull-like. The verdict of the photographic expert? The figure of the Pink Lady was registered on the film and was not caused by a camera malfunction or questionable activity.

Winters and his team of investigators had the chance to return to the mansion, but they never felt, saw, or photographed the Pink Lady again. The four-story brick mansion was said to be built in the early 1800s. Perhaps to steer ghost hunters away from his property, the current owner unfortunately had it demolished. A cornfield replaced the spot where the spooky mansion once stood.

So what do you think, is this real or another fake ghost photo? Tell us what you think with a comment below!

    I think any photographer can recognize a double exposure. Nicely done, but still faked.

    If they didn't see her with their eyes how could the film be exposed ?

    @emperomorton double exposure? that would be some excellent framing. Staged maybe....there will never be a photo of a "ghost" that will ever be real evidence anyways it's too easy to fake.

    Caleb Savage: Into the Darkroom, Out in the Open

    When asked to recall the moment they first became truly interested in photography, most photographers would remember the magical feeling of picking up a hand-me-down or secondhand camera, the thrill of shooting an entire roll through, and the elation upon seeing and holding their first ever set of photographs. Caleb Savage, however, had quite a unique experience. At 10 years old, he had his first taste of working in the darkroom making prints at Boy Scout camp, thereby beginning a more than a decade-long affinity with photography.
