There was a haunted house inhabited by a ghost which was feared by all.

At last a brave photographer decided to attempt to take a photograph to prove the existence of the ghost. When he entered the house, the ghost swooped on him with clanking chains and a blood-curdling scream. However, he held his nerve and told the ghost that he just wanted to take his photograph. The ghost was quite happy with this and posed for a number of shots.

When the journalist got back to his darkroom to develop the photographs he found that they were all black and underexposed.

The spirit was willing but the flash was weak.
