What *is* that?

A friend of mine allowed me to post these two photos of her son's kindergarten graduation party this past spring. She wants to know what you think that white, tornado-looking thing is near the door.

She attests that there was nothing like that in the room at the time and she has seen similar phenomena is other photos. I'm trying to convince her to send me the other photos, too...

Her explanation:
It was in like 5 other pics [...] at different angles...He's had them in tons of pics since he was a baby. His aunt and I think it's his paternal grandma who passed a month before I met his dad...

Well, what do you think?









*Obviously, I masked the identities of the other kids.

  1. Interesting object. In the first pic, it looks like the object is behind his hat, but the second pic it looks like the line of kids moved to their left and the object is still in the same spot (in reference to the red/yellow trim around the doors and the thermostat on the wall).

  2. Looks like a plastic bag sticking out through the crack of the door. It never changes position, eventhough the kids do.

  3. Well that would be the most translucent plastic bag in existence. I agree that it does see to be almost "attached" to the door frame. And it is in the extact same shape, i'd like to see some others...

  4. It's a stain or flaw in the finish of some type on the door brought out by the flash. It is in the exact position in both photographs. There are no demons or ghosts, America. Stop being Flintstones in a Jetsons world.

  5. I think it's glare from the door (it looks rather smooth) I had something similar happen from a shiny surface before :)

  6. It's easy what that to see what that is. A reflection from the camera flash. I also notice there is a stainless steel drinking fountain next to the door just below the anomaly. It easily can be a broken up reflection if there is residual water (even droplets of water) sitting in the basin of the drinking fountain catching camera flashes.

  7. It is the flash projecting off the glass/plastic framing from the Basketball photo on the wall. It's directly across from it, and it never moves.
