Cell Phone Camera Took This Pic

 On my way home from work tonight I stopped at Gretchen's Lock and did some ghost hunting.  I took several pics with my cell and a couple videos, hoping to get some EVP.  When I got home I imported the pics to my lap top and got good look at what I captured.  Question is, what did I capture?
The white bar looking thing at the top of the stairs on the lock is not anything that is normally there.
This is the very next picture I took.  No bar.  I used the flash that is on my cell phone. I have to say I am intrigued by this picture.  Even though there is probably some rational explanation for what it is, the fact that I am standing at Lock 42, Jake's Lock, makes me speculate as to what that might be.  :)
If you have any ideas, I am all ears!!

Continued Use of My Cell Phone For Ghost Hunting Results

The two things I am using the most right now on my cell phone for ghost hunting is the camera and the flashlight app.  The flashlight is super bright!  Very useful!  
My cell is a Samsung Galaxy III and the camera on it great!! One of the interesting things on it is the different modes you can take a picture in.  
In this picture, it has only the color blue that shows up. The rest is black and white.  Makes for beautiful pictures...but then there is....










This is a negative picture and I would like to work more with it. I also took some pics of my grandson using it and this is what has my interest:
A person's shadow shows up very easily using the negative.  I am wondering if it is possible to catch a Shadow Person by using this.  I will be attempting to do that this year.    
If you have been using your cell phone successfully out in the field and have some ideas to share on how it works best, please leave a comment or email me!  ghosting12@yahoo.com

"Ten Symptoms of a Haunted House" at Leetonia Library on May 12

If you have been wondering whether or not your house might have a ghostly resident, here is your chance to learn some of the symptoms a haunted house might have.  I will be at Leetonia Library on May 12 (a Monday) to talk about common events experienced in reported haunted houses.  More will be posted about this event as the date gets closer.

Do Animals See Ghosts?

This is the 2011 G12P crew. We were camping at Gretchen's Lock.  Knelt down is Amber Rodgers, holding Cookie.  He was our little ghost huntng dog.  He went on several investigations with us.  Our goal was to see if he reacted to any kind of ghostly contact.  Being a chihuahua, he is very fierce and afraid of NOTHING.  Maybe that was the problem.  He never reacted to anything.  At least, not like we thought he would.  He would charge into the night, growling and barking at whatever he saw.
Our conclusions were....inconclusive.
On January 13, 2012, I had a paranormal visitor in my own home that woke me up at 3:30 am.  Surrounding me was three dogs, sleeping either with me or on the floor around me.  They did not react at all to my ghostly visitor.  If they knew it was their, they never made a sound.
Maybe my dogs are just not psychics either.
I am looking for your stories about your pets having a strange reaction to some ghostly presence.  If you have one, leave a comment or email me!

On a side note about the event I had in my home.  There was something strange about it as far as my dogs are concerned.  I was fully awake and terrified because I thought I had a living person in my home, a stranger.  Even if my dogs didn't sense an intruder of any kind,  they also didn't sense my distress. Most dogs are up at the drop of a pin.  I was shouting at what ever was in my home and my dogs never budged from their sleep.  Just a thought.
