Pirate House Ghost Picture

The Pirate House Restaurant in Savannah, Georgia has a history of haunting and known to have been frequented by pirates. Rhonda Swindell sent us this amazing ghost picture taken vacation during the summer of 2011:

"If you look closely, over (my son's) shoulder, you will see a black silhouette...the entire time we were there, this area was empty."

"We had just sat down and ordered our drinks. After the drinks arrived, my son decided to play with his 'Pirate Placemat' and we cut out the paper pirate hat, earrings, coins, eye patch, etc. I started taking some pictures of him. In this picture, just over his shoulder is another room in the restaurant. The entire time we were there, this room remained empty, as we were there before the dinner rush. In the picture, just before this one was taken and the picture taken seconds after, this shadow was gone."


Conclusion:
When studying the close-up image of the ghost, we included an inset, lightened image to see if we could find any detail. You'll notice details of the table settings are visible, but this figure still remains blacked-out. The figure is a consistent shadow, unlike a person walking into the room would have appeared. There simply is no light reflection from the lights onto the figure. Having seen this phenomenon before, we believe this could be a shadow ghost.

Is this ghost picture, taken at the Pirate House in Savannah, Georgia, a ghost?
