While aboard the Queen Mary a few years back my Uncle George took this picture of what he thought was an ordinary vestibule. When he got home he printed out his pictures but wasn’t expecting to find what looks like a ghost walking down the hall. My Uncle is 78 and does not believe in ghosts, but this freaked him out. He doesn’t even like to talk about the incident. I was just watching a special on the 10 most haunted places and when the Queen Mary was listed I felt compelled to send in the picture.
Many emails have poured in to Hauntedamericaours.com since the original posting of the Queen Mary Ghost photo. All stating that they believe this to be the best Ghost Photo ever taken on the Queen Mary to date. Many have also voted this to be the best Number 1 Ghost Photo of the year for 2008.

I grew up in Beaverton, Oregon, a suburb of Portland that is best known for being the World Headquarters of Nike. After an uneventful childhood, I went off to college at the University of Oregon to earn a journalism degree. Then, jaded by the world of contemporary media, I earned a Masters of Education to teach high school English. A job offer took me from my hometown to Sacramento in 2003, and I`ve been here since. In my ``free`` time, I write fiction and am the author of a YA series called ``Partners in Time``, which you can easily find at the local Amazon.com, Barnes & Nobel, etc.
Regarding ghosts, I have been interested in those since I can remember. I was quite the reader as a child and devoured fiction and non-fiction books about haunted places and ghosts. For a time, my mom fretted about me because the non-fiction books on ghosts were set next to books on demons and the occult in our local library. As I grew up, I collected articles in The Oregonian newspaper about haunted locations (local or otherwise) that were printed, usually around Halloween, and loved the show ``Unsolved Mysteries`` for the occasional pieces they had about haunted places. In high school, I spent a semester doing a 60 page research paper on ghosts, impressing a teacher who thought that the selection of such a topic would not be taken seriously.
During my teenage journalistic endeavors, I wrote a story about the haunted McLoughlan House in Oregon City , Ore. for my high school`s newspaper, interviewing the curator-at-the-time about her experiences there. I also wrote a story about the haunted auditorium in South Eugene High School for the UO`s student newspaper, after a tip from a college roommate, and was able to track down a student who had possibly captured the ghost on film.

A word about the "Top Ten Best Ghost Photos in the World 2008" from Shannon McCabe of Ghost Girls TV & H.P.I International: When I first saw these photos I was skeptical, as I am with anything that people send me, but these photos made me take a second look. I must say, that these photos are very impressive, and I have seen a lot of photos in my 14 years of paranormal investigating. I especially like the #1 photo, it's quite hard to debunk and it certainly doesn't look altered. What makes me think that this photo is really something is the fact that spirit usually "floats" above the ground
making it appear like it's levitating. It is also known that spirit can sometimes manifest without certain body parts, hence the disappearing "legs". Way to go Joe LaRocca!
And I am very fond of photo #2. It happens to have come from one of my investigators for H.P.I. International, Kristen Sheley. Kristen & Holly DeLaughter were investigating upstairs at a local theater in Sacramento, CA. I was alerted to the apparition as I was downstairs watching orbs on my monitor. I ran upstairs as quickly as I could to get in on the action and was wowed by the photo that the HPI investigators caught! I can attest that we tried to duplicate this photo with a human standing at the end of the hall, to no avail. It was a great capture, and we hope to capture more apparitions as the years
Great job to all those that submitted photos! Keep them coming for next year, and maybe you'll be one of the Top Ten Best Ghost Photos!
