Whether you were out on the town, taking a ghost tour with us, or hanging out in any of the places you visit, work or live, did you ever have something strange happen to you and you snapped a picture? Or, maybe everything seemed just fine and normal, but upon closer inspection of your photos, you noticed something a little off, or downright creepy?

We would love for you to share your story with us for a new regular blog feature: The Proof Is In The Picture. If you have something exciting to share, please email us at: ghostandgraveyardtour@gmail.com with the subject line: PROOF PICTURE.
