Our friend Annie brought us this picture, taken by a friend of hers. She wanted us to see the figure in the window.
Right away, I saw the small — perhaps winged — figure in the left lower corner of the window. She has wavy hair, and she’s looking across the landscape, perhaps slightly down.
Nice, but… Who knows what these things really are? The figure isn’t distinctive enough to be significant, but it’s a charming photo anyway.
Then I enlarged just that portion of the window.
I’m not saying that this is the image of a girl trapped in an abandoned New Hampshire house, held captive by something with a wicked gleam in its eye. However, it’s one possible explanation. It’s just not the happiest one, and I don’t think that’s the real story. I’m sensing loneliness but not terror or even significant fear, but I could be wrong.
No matter what else this is, it’s an intriguing image.
