I feel like this issue got lost in the shuffle of my blog (and I’m not willing to let it go), so let’s revisit this topic. Above, you will see two pictures taken at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York in 2006. The image on top features some sort of large, black misty blob while the photo on the bottom (taken 90 seconds later, according to the info imbedded in the photo) is free of the black blob. Don’t know about you, but I see a face on the right half of the blob. (click on the photo and then click again on top of the blob to see what I’m talking about)
Though the lighting was subdued in the church, it wasn’t so dark that my camera would have made a person walking by into a blob – if the “shutter” on my digital camera were open that long, other aspects of the shot would be blurry because I was holding the camera in my hand. Also, the thing appears to be about three pews in front of where I’m sitting, so it’s a little big to be a person.
So the question remains – what the hell is that?
(By the way, this is just now an issue because I didn’t notice the black thing when I initially loaded the pictures – it wasn’t until last week that I found an old thumb drive and reloaded them on my laptop that I saw this…thing.)
