Through a Glass Darkly

Top point, black and tan dog, paw facing south

The human mind relies heavily on its ability to remember and  recognize patterns. Sometimes we see patterns where there isn't one. Lying with the grass at our backs we see pictures in the clouds. I've seen Europe PLUS England at least 4 times in the clouds. France appears in my mashed potatoes. Faces are are readily recognizable pattern -  that's why we often see two eyes, a nose and a mouth in the pile of a carpet.
A blogger's son, feeling a ghostly presence in his bedroom, flashed his camera into the darkness and the pixels neatly organized themselves to reveal the face of a young black maid.
Taking pictures of  my garden through some old chandelier prisms I have dangling I have often seen faces and things.
See if you can see them too and what you think.

I see a Mennonite-like farmer in the middle third, tiny, small, profile, black hat, beard, tan shirt, black pants, but really it's just a 2 black streaks, surrounding a beige streak.

On the left side, I see a living room wall, with a fireplace, a doorframe and paintings on the wall

Top left, I see a partial creepy face - kind of like David Caruso

Through a Glass Darkly

This one takes the cake. The ghostly white figure that looks like it's hanging Christmas ornaments is probably just the bare white space on the neighbour's garage. I see a black man that looks like Danny Glover staring at the "ghost". I also see a black child with his arm out to the left ( or is that a cat ? I don't have one). I also see a third black face, this one with a bit of pink nose looking to the left.
