FINALLY!!!!! Sorry to waste everyone's time before! I had to resize it AND my comp was running slow. So anyway, originally I thought that this was some discoloration in the stairs and I think the body of the "shape" is in fact partly that. But the "hat" part of the shape actually blocks out those parts of the stairs. I'm not a pro photog or anything but I did run it through a few image filters. The hat shows up in all of them and the eyes actually have pupils in others. Found this interesting. I have two more pics that I would like to post after this.

The second set of pictures I'm afraid I can't see anything. Can anyone point out what I am missing?

Don`t worry about that, because there is no way to do it from just a picture. Photo`s can`t prove, or disprove, anything definitively. Something in a photo could always be a light anomaly, a camera flaw, or maybe even something real. There is no way to tell for sure from just the image. Photos are interesting, and can be used as supplementary evidence, but can never qualify as primary evidence.
The "hat" in the first image looks to be a stain on the stairs to me. The " eye lights " could be some kind of reflection or artifact. I would need to see the full size, unedited original to have any better idea.
I don`t see anything in the second or third image .. but remember that changing the camera angle slightly could alter the look of a light or reflection anomaly enough to make you think it looks different.

I used to work at Duke University Med. Ctr. in the 80ís and 90ís for about 13 years. My first job was in the Psych department for about 3 years and then in Prosthetics and Orthotics for about 10 years. This of course meant that I was located in the basement at Duke South while I was working in P&O. One interesting thing I can tell you is that our P&O clinic was located, and may still be located, where the shoot is located at the back of Duke So. off the turning circle. This is where the mail was dropped off and to the Duke So. mail room and where funeral homes would come to pick up bodies. Also of interest is that the old morgue was located at the end of the hallway very near to us and around the corner where they did (do?) medical transcriptions. As a result the crematorium was located right next door to the P&O clinic. Our patient parking was located on this shoot, which was very narrow, and of course this created some issues with some patients when the Funeral Homes came by to discharge their duties.
While I worked first shift there I was often in the clinic alone at night and even slept there at least once when bad weather was coming in and I had to be there to work the next day. I slept in one of the offices in the back of the clinic quite close to the old morgue. I brought a cot to sleep on and some food and something to drink through the night, and some movies on vhs video tapes (movies) so I comfortable and entertained. I will tell you however that, that clinic is one creepy place at night and I certainly was on the lookout for anything which might be trolling around or might say boo. LOL I often felt that the place was inhabited by ghosts of people who not only died there but worked there before death. Duke is an amazing place and depending on the day you either love working there or you hate it. There doesnít seem to be any in between.
As for your photos I did look to see if I could tell exactly where you took your photos and I donít recognize those areas. Duke is crawling with underground tunnels that are not open to anyone but security and maintenance as Iím sure you know. I was told in fact that in the 1960ís security and the police used those tunnels to move about the campus during the civil rights and anti-war protests. I realize that both Duke No and So have changed and that there are even new basement and sub basement areas now. They were doing the work on the new clinics at Duke So when I worked there and it was finished about a year or two before I left Duke.
As for what I see in the photos, it does appear at first glance in the first photo that something could be on the stairs. However after looking closer I think that it is discoloration and a reflection of something on the stairs. On the other two photos I did not see anything which looked out of place or paranormal. In our group we usually tell people that still photographs are probably the hardest evidence to analyze and therefore the weakest evidence to draw a firm conclusion on. Without other co-operating evidence such as EVPs, video, EMF documentation occurring at the same time, it is hard to say for sure what anything is on a still photo.
I would love to hear from you and would love to know if the P&O clinic is still located in the place it was when I left. I know they went private as Duke did not want to operate the clinic anymore. I always thought that was sad and a mistake that Duke wanted to let it all go but I wasnít in administration of course. LOL
Before I close this reply, Iím sure you have been on campus and walked around the beautiful Gothic architecture of Duke West campus which is of course adjacent to Duke So. The Chapel is beautiful as is all the rest of that campus. Iíve been to the top of the chapel many times and even in the crypt where the past presidents of Duke are interred in the floor and walls of the crypt. If one faces the alter of the chapel on the left is the crypt where the Duke brothers are also interred and while the whole campus has a Gothic beauty to it Iím sure there are ghosts a plenty there in many of the buildings.
Thanks so much for this post Glen.
Hope it attaches this time!

On a serious note... and I hate to be "that person" but I am seeing illusion, nothing paranormal. I do see what you're referring to in the second set of pictures, but to me it is just something that showed up due to the lighting when you took the pictures.
Just realized how old this thread is. Wow. We need to liven things up around here!
