I need some opinions of some shots that I took after noticing movement in one of the dresser's mirrors.
About 1/2 year ago I was watching TV in my bedroom, lights out, candles on. I noticed movement in the dresser's mirror in field of my view (the dresser has two mirrors and the TV sits between them), so I wasted no time, grabbed my rotten old camera (which was the only one in reach) and snapped some pictures. After finding something in the images, I took two more shots the next night with some interesting results.
The following images are brightness/contrast altered crops of full size shots with the anomalities highlighted by red boxes, followed by the original full sized images in the same order as the crops.
First image appears to show two pairs of (demonic?) eyes and a strange shadow cloud, the 2nd image looks like a faint silouette of someone peeking through the blinds (reflected in the mirror), The third and fourth shots were taken seconds apart of each other, where in the third shot appears to be a faint image of a tiny woman in early 1900's outfit and in the fourth shot the woman is replaced by a tall thin man silouatte with a hat and some other faint shadows that don't resemble anything in my room.
I don't make any claims and am only stating what I think I see in those image and trying to make sense what I captured there. Is it pareidolia? Illusions? Low quality artifacts? Or did I capture something real there? IMO the woman seems too detailed to be just pareidolia, but who knows, I did capture false positives before. I'll wait and see what you have to say.
Fun fact: This afternoon I woke from a short nap finding the bedroom door wide open. I know for a fact that the door was shut when I laid down. Hmmmm...

In all honesty, I don't see anything in the first picture.
However, I do make out the shapes you refer to in the other images.
In the third image, what is that white line to the right of the tiny lady shape? Is that a reflection of something in the room?

Can't say for sure but it's not a smear or streak on the surface (I checked), it could be from using the flash though.
PS: I'm surprised that you don't see the "demon" eyes in the 1st picture. It jumped out at me even before enhancing the crop. Maybe it I point out that it looks like it could have a nose and looks a bit like an owl with it's head cocked sideways? And there appears a faint set of eyes above it.

Checked the pictures, I looked at the first one and instantly saw how you think there is a figure there with demon eyes however I don't think its anything paranormal. Most likely its the quality of the camera, if you click the next picture you see little glimpses of a mixture of colors which lead me to the conclusion its not a demon with demonic eyes.

In my opinion this is a case of Pareidolia.
can't see it as paranormal can see why people would think so though.

thanks Andy

I see nothing really. And the camera is putting out all kinds of artifacts, almost every pic has red dots all over them. Which explains the "demon eyes".

What about the little woman? She's there in one picture, then a tall thin shadow man in the next? Just wondering, not defending ^_^

I'm pretty sure this is the best explanation(s) for what is in the images.

   I'm not seeing a little woman. Mirrors + pictures taken of them = major illusions
