  1. I am going to have to vote for #5 as well…because we just think that is a person wearing a costume. Yikes!

    I do like the little Goblin in front of the chair in #2.

    Yeah, I can imagine an actual goblin passing off as a 2D cutout to go unnoticed (and it reminds me of those fairy pics from the turn of the century – Of *course* supernatural beings lose dimensions on film. It’s physics, people!).

    But I’ll add my vote to number 5.
    Cuz there’s something else in the doorway…

    …isn’t there?

    I’m voting for #4 because it makes no sense. I like sense. I like law and order and logic, and number 4 has none of those things so it CREEPS ME OUT. Plus, the photographer was obviously so freaked out he took a picture through the window, just in case anything happened.
