Photo of a ghost at Annie Penn Hospital?

Annie Penn Hospital is the main medical facility in my hometown of Reidsville, North Carolina. It was founded in 1930. There's the original building and then a few additions that have been constructed over the years. Today it is part of the Moses Cone Health System based in nearby Greensboro.

And it was at Annie Penn Hospital where this photo was recently taken...

The photo comes courtesy of James Hodges, a good friend, writer and pastor of Burton Memorial Missionary Baptist Church in Reidsville. The photo did not originate with James but it was made by someone that he knows.

Feel free to leave whatever comment you are led to make about this image. Could it be that this is photo documentation of a ghost at Annie Penn Hospital: a place that has a long history of reputedly being haunted?

EDIT 3:35 p.m. EST: Okay, the mystery has been solved! And turns out... it is a Photoshop job. But quite a neat one! Dwayne Corum who also hails from this burg submits this...

"It was a Photoshop...sorry to let you guys down. I know the guy who took the pic and put the "ghost" in the pic...sorry to let your supernatural heart down..lol"
Nah, it's all good Dwayne. This probably gave a lot of people a good thing to catch on a Friday when nothing else is going on but the heat around here! Just shows that even us small-town folk can have some high-tech fun just as well as everyone else ;-)

And for the record, I don't know the actual person who took it. The person who took the pic knows somebody I know. (If that makes sense lol).

That's interesting. It's not everyday that you come across a full-body apparition. It's the holy grail for any paranormal enthusiast/investigator. It looks real, because I can't come up with anything else that it could have been. Plus, it's see-through, and you can see the bed behind it. Good catch, for sure!

crazy and creepy! it looks like the ghost is even wearing the hospital gown...but as someone who works with photoshop it would be pretty easy to make it transparent on another layer (i know, im no fun)

Well darn. I see that it was a Photoshop job. That's a good one, actually.

It really isn't an everyday thing that full-body apparitions are seen.

Why do apparitions where cloths? I have never seen an apparition wear name brand cloths like Tommy Hilfiger, Wranglers, or a pair of Nkies. Come to think of it, I never heard an apparition being fully nude.
