Christmas Tree?

There was some debate in our household over what I saw in this photograph. No, debate isn’t the right choice of words. I was mocked. What do you see here?

  8. There’s no Santa. No not in, general, only there’s no Santa in the picture. I do see the little boy looking tree and it kind of looks like he’s standing on fire because of the shiny floor reflecting the lights.

  11. This “thing” is actually looking at us making us foolish. Too funny, Dave. The more I look at it, the weirder my thoughts become. I better not have a nightmare, tonight.

  17. I can see the birds… and also someone at the stairs but not clear… and a lovely photograph with this little boy…. Actually there is not any gift package under the tree πŸ™‚ But what I see in the tree, in the light, (on the left side) a cat yes, much more seems like a cat… not a dog… I can see her paws/legs and eyes… πŸ™‚ Can you see dear David?
    Thank you, Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday, love, nia

    Each takes their own meaning from the objects in the world around them. I see only a boy in front of a Christmas tree, but the lack of presents under the tree might infer something.

    • Yes, so true Alex. I had seen the same (lack of presents under the tree) and the boy’s shoulders slumped like he was sad. This photo and the various comments above remind me a quote I came across on Steve Layman’s Blog that I thought was apropos here:

      “Still photographs are the most powerful weapon in the world. People believe them, but photographs do lie, even without manipulation. They are only half-truths.”

      -Eddie Adams, AP photographer
