Here's an odd one for you.  Shadows on the wall which last about half an hour before the sun's angle changes and they thin out and fade.

The wall is plain white, and the black dots are caused by minute holes in the expanded polystyrene wall covering, which looks grey where I fiddled the contrast to bring out the shadows.

The whole shadow picture is about two feet deep, and it took me a while to work out what was causing it.

What do you see, and what do you think was causing it?

I can see someone very mysterious . . . in a suit and a hat. I think it was caused by a feather caught in your guttering.

So you see them too.  Explanation later.

What about the circular object?

Looks like a stained glass window. So the scene in full is one mysterious (and very tall) person being chased by two others in a church.

The round thing is a Dream Catcher and the other, almost human figure, I take to be created by some type of feather creation, guessing and a Native American creation.
