A ghost is usually defined as the apparition of a deceased person, frequently similar in appearance to that person, and encountered in places he or she frequented, or in association with the person's former belongings. The word "ghost" may also refer to the spirit or soul of a deceased person, or to any spirit or demon.

Women with no legs

This is another common photo floating around the Internet that is mistaken as a ghost photo.

The problem with this photo is that it's really quite obvious that it's not a ghost photo at all - in fact the poor woman pictured here has had her face plastered all over the Internet and publicised as a ghost - when she is very much alive and well.

The photo has caught her in an unfortunate position - it's obvious by the blur that she is moving forward quickly - therefore one leg (left) is caught mid air up behind her (possibly trying to step over and avoid the pram you see beside her)...you can just see the tip of the foot dangling down from the edge of her coat - and her other leg (right) is caught back behind the black pole holding up the chain link. When you suddenly run forward your body usually leans forward then your legs take off - that's what's happened to this woman - her leg is back behind the pole giving this photo the odd appearance of her having no legs.

Unlikely explanation. If anything, it's just a fake picture. The chain link fence immediately to the left precludes quick movement in that position of almost any kind. The "tip of the foot" you say is obvious is simply a dark patch on the road, identical in every way to the dark patches over to the left. Additionally, none of the people in the photo, especially the child, even acknowledges this person's presence, which they would be doing by reflex if there were a sudden movement in field of view. Finally, you say she is alive and well. What is the source of that information? Thanks!
